THE NS WAV ELECTRIC VIOLIN is the perfect electric violin for any player interested in exploring the world of amplified or electronic performance. Full, natural tone, outstanding comfort, and sophisticated design are combined in these instruments for unmatched performance.
Features & Highlights
The NS Polar Pickup System has the unique ability to analyze the direction of string vibration to enhance the bowed response and to facilitate bow technique.
The unusually powerful piezo crystals do not require on-board power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.
The WAV series bridge is crafted from rock maple and is easily adjustable.
Other standard features of the WAV Violins include a graduated ebony fingerboard, a smooth and fast neck, and a removable bout for accurate position reference.
