Electric Violin with Amazing Active Electronics!

The NS Design CR4 Violin shows off just about everything our Sales Engineers have come to appreciate about Steinberger instruments over Sweetwater's extended history with this innovative company. Small, sleek, and ready to travel, this electric violin feels incredibly stable and delivers full and rich sound you're sure to love. Its adjustable shoulder rest conforms comfortably to your body. What's more, this CR4 Violin's active Polar Pickup system provides you with perfectly detailed sound for any occasion. From the rehearsal room to the recording studio, the orchestra pit to center stage, there are countless ways you can put one of these amazing NS Design CR4 Violins to work.

NS Design CR4 Violin at a Glance:
  • Active Polar Pickup System delivers full sound with amazing articulation
  • Fully adjustable shoulder rest gives you the playing comfort you need
  • Innovative Steinberger hardware provides precision tuning and adjustment
Active Polar Pickup System delivers full sound with amazing articulation

The NS Design CR4 Violin sports an phenomenal-sounding active Polar Pickup System that delivers extraordinary sound no matter how you play. Technically a passive pickup system, the Polar Pickup System rivals the output of many active systems. A pizz/arco switch optimizes the pickup's response for plucked or bowed playing. What's more, this CR4 Violin sports an impressive 2-mode active preamp system. In one mode, this preamp gives you a natural acoustic sound, and in the other, it offers a more electric sound for modern pop and other genres. All told, you'll be amazed by the range of tone this electric violin has to offer.

Fully adjustable shoulder rest gives you the playing comfort you need

NS Design knows how important it is to get a comfortable and secure hold on your electric violin, which is why they outfitted their CR4 Violin with their amazing custom chin and shoulder rest. This system makes it easy to support your instrument securely without using your left hand, and it even features easy-to-reach set screws that make it convenient to adjust your CR4 Violin even in the playing position.

Innovative Steinberger hardware provides precision tuning and adjustment

There's no denying that the NS Design's CR4 Violin is a unique instrument, but from its slim and lightweight body to its fully adjustable shoulder rest, everything about it has been designed to benefit you as much as possible. One major example of this are its 40:1 endpin tuners, which provide extreme stability and fine-tuning control. At the same time, the CR4 Violin's fully adjustable tailpiece allows you to dial in the perfect playing feel and string response for your style.

NS Design CR4 Violin Features:
  • A great-sounding and highly portable violin designed for the discerning performer
  • Maple body and neck with hand-graduated ebony fingerboard looks great and plays beautifully
  • Removable body reference bout lets you restrict or open up fingerboard access to taste
  • Polar Pickup System with pizz/arco selector switch provides natural pizzicato and bowed expression
  • 2-mode active preamp system offers up both acoustic and electric violin sounds
  • JackPot potentiometers for volume and tone remove themselves from the signal path when fully open for superior sound
  • Fully adjustable shoulder/neck rest provides ideal support you can adjust comfortably from the playing position
  • Compatible with NS Electric strings and standard violin strings.
  • Meticulously crafted and built in the Czech Republic
