OVERVIEW

Breathtaking cello design and function!

The NS Design CR Series Electric Cello is a masterpiece of modern strings. Capable of producing the delicate and precise tones of its acoustic counterpart as well as create exciting new sounds. The tone shaping geometry of the innovative Polar pickup system and dual-mode preamp are at the heart of this modern marvel. Simply plug in direct to an amp or explore new sounds by running it through and effects pedal. The possibilities are endless, and have yet to be fully explored.Uses standard cello strings and scale length. Discreet dot makers on the fingerboard and small brass bump on the back of the neck provide references for accurate intonation. Adjustable tripod stand (included) can be used seated or standing. Headphone jack provided.General Overview
The solid-body NS Cello, designed by Ned Steinberger, is now available in the affordable CR Series. This remarkable instrument, available with 4, 5 or 6-strings, is able to produce the delicate and precise tones of its acoustic parent as well as to create exciting new sounds through the tone shaping geometry of its innovative Polar TM piezo pickup system. Three interchangeable support systems provide new performance options. A fully adjustable tripod stand can be used seated or standing. The inventive shoulder strap system allows full mobility, while the conventional end pin stand provides the traditional points of cello contact and position. The use of standard cello strings and scale length establishes a familiar starting point for the cellist's journey to the electric world. From there anything goes. The energetic response of the NS Cello can be tamed to deliver a traditional cello tone, or set loose to explore new territory.Solid Maple Body And Neck
The NS Cello is crafted of European maple, with a flame maple face. This solid-body design develops a rich multi-dimensional tone free from the constraints inherent in an acoustic instrument. The traditional cello scale length and neck shape have a familiar feel, while the small body allows full access to the upper register. Solid construction provides structural stability to resist changes in temperature and humidity.Ebony Fingerboard
The solid ebony fingerboard is graduated for each string for ideal playing action. Cascading dot markers provide an attractive and precise reference for fingering/intonation.Polar Pickup System
The NS Cello features the Polar bridge-mounted piezo pickup system. The Polar pickups can sense either vertical or lateral string vibration. Set in the vertical mode, plucked notes are remarkably even and sustained. In the lateral mode, the pickup has unparalleled sensitivity in the direction of the bow, with more attack when plucked. Attack and decay can be effectively controlled with the Polar pickup system.Active Electronics
The dual mode preamp allows the player to choose between two very distinct tone qualities. The first mode delivers the full frequency response of modern low impedance electronics, for a rich, full-blown "electric" sound. The second is balanced to produce the frequency response of the traditional cello, for a more "acoustic" sound. A three-way toggle switch allows the player to select the desired pickup and electronics options. Additional controls include volume and individual bass EQ & treble EQ controls.Portability
The padded tubular gig bag is only 40" long and 7" diameter, and weighs 10 lbs with the instrument and tripod stand. A storage area inside the gig bag has room for accessories.
