The instrument purchase includes a hardshell case, owner’s manual, and tool kit.
Light weight and good balance are the essential comfort factors for any electric violin. The fully carved interior of the NS WAV Electric Violin keeps the weight to the minimum, and the body mounted tuners bring the center of gravity back over the shoulder where it belongs. The WAV includes theCustom Shoulder Rest, which allows you to shape and adjust the padded base to the contours of your shoulder and chest, for a secure and comfortable fit. Also included with the instrument is the ergonomically contoured ebony chin rest, designed to work in tandem with the Custom Shoulder Rest for control, comfort and security.
At the heart of every NS electric violin is thePolar ™ Pickup System. Sensor and bridge geometry are integrated to translate every nuance to the amplifier and speaker system.
