Steinberger E-Violin NS Design CR5 - 5 string
This high-quality electric violin made of beautifully flamed maple has active pickups with three individual tone controls through which the instrument can be input directly into the PA or recording system. It can be adjusted to sound more delicate like a traditional acoustic violin or instead more powerful, with a rich electronic sound. With a toggle switch, you can switch between two different playing modes, pizzcato and bowed. There is also a headphone output for silent practicing. Last but not least, the appearance of the violin really catches the eye with its futuristic design.
With the NS Design patented tuning system, remarkably precise and stable tuning is accomplished entirely behind the bridge, in the manner similar to the fine tuners of an acoustic instrument. With the elimination of the traditional scroll and pegs, weight is shifted in towards the player for optimum comfort. Any standard violin string will fit the NS Violin, although specially formulated NS Electric strings from D'Addario are recommended.
The ergonomic shoulder and chin rest provide comfortable, stable support, and a removable treble side bout is included for left hand position reference. The fingerboard is solid ebony.
