With electronics are fully based around the NS patented Polar™ Pickup System, the WAVOmni is available in 4 or 5 string models with several color choices to please the eye as well. The WAV proudly shares the same elegant, modern body design, ergonomics and performance support options of its companions in the NS line.

The WAV’s Polar pickup system includes a convenient toggle switch between Arco and Pizzicato mode. Use the Arco mode for a traditional acoustic response for either bowing and a percussive plucked sound, or switch to the Pizzicato mode for uniquely even and sustained plucked sound, opening up new dimensions to the sound pallet. The piezo-powered passive electronics deliver an amazingly natural tone with unlimited overhead for extraordinary performance without the need or hassle of batteries.
