STRINGS: NS Electric Strings are standard.  Compatible with solid and stranded core violin strings.  Synthetic core strings are not recommended.

PRECISION TUNING HARDWARE: Fine tuners are mounted on the body behind the bridge for precise, stable tuning. Automatic string clamping allows for quick, easy string changes.

PICKUP: The Polar directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to either lateral string vibration (for dynamic bowing) or vertical string vibration (for remarkably even and sustained plucked/pizzicato sound, like a mandolin). A switch allows the player to choose the desired response.

PERFORMANCE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

SHOULDER AND CHIN REST OPTIONS: The Custom Shoulder Rest is a standard with the NXTa Violin and can be formed by the player to fit the body perfectly.  As an option, the violin can also attach to NS Design’s revolutionary Balanced Shoulder Rest, which “floats” the instrument in the desired playing position without being “clamped” between the jaw and the shoulder.

The contoured ebony chin rest supplied with the instrument is designed to work comfortably in tandem with the Custom Shoulder Rest. The optional Adjustable Chin Rest is also available for players wanting a more extensive range of position adjustments for more customized fit and comfort.
