OVERVIEW

A violin for the new millennium.

Capable of producing everything from traditional acoustic tone to full-tilt electric sound, this radically innovative instrument works in virtually any musical context.

The body is crafted in solid maple with a flamed face. A maple bout on the treble side provides standard violin reference and is readily removed for unrestricted neck access.

Other appointments include an ebony fingerboard and precision 40:1 fine tuners with automatic string clamping that are mounted on the body behind the bridge. An ergonomic foam pad shoulder rest is fully adjustable (up, down, and tilt).

The Polar directional piezo pickup responds selectively to either lateral or vertical string vibration. Piezo adjustment is accessible from the outside of instrument. A 3-way toggle switch allows the player to select the desired pickup and electronics options. 3 switch positions provide the player with different bowed sounds: one position delivers the extended frequency response of modern low-impedance electronics for a full-blown electric sound while the second position activates electronic filters to replicate the frequency reponse of the traditional violin for an acoustic sound. The third setting is optimal for pizzicato technique as it captures vertical string vibration. The preamp provides volume, treble, and bass EQ.

CR4 Owner Review

By Anonymous

Comments about NS Design CR4 4-String Electric Violin:

I play violin in a tribute band. With nothing but an old, beat-up acoustic violin with a transducer in the bridge for a pickup, I needed to find something durable that could withstand the rigors of the road yet without sacrificing the pure "organic" tones of the acoustic violin. I found the CR4. The CR looks stunning. Unlike many other, cheaper electric violins out there that seem to go for gaudy shapes and intrusive colors, the CR maintains a classic, maple flame finish and a streamlined shape that is quite arresting. It plays even better than it looks. With its adjustable shoulder support and shallow chin rest, the instrument is very comfortable to play for long periods of time. It is a little on the heavy side and there is no scroll or peg box to offset the balance. But the function behind this design is a revolutionary tuning system that is perfect for rapid string changing and tonal stability while playing. It does not go out of tune - a burden one faces playing many other models. If you're in the market for an electric violin, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

Doesn't get any better!

Comments about NS Design CR4 4-String Electric Violin:

The authentic clear sound of the NS 4-String Electric violin is an inspiration to play. The tone it produces is that of the most cherished violins. It's the most beautiful sounding instrument I've ever played - beats my $10,000 hand-made Italian violin hands-down.
