A remarkably easy-to-play electric violin for the professional and student alike.
Designed and built to deliver great sound; excellent playability; and long, dependable service; the WAV 4 violin from NS design provides an affordable option for the serious professional and student player.
At the heart of every NS bowed electric violin is the Polar pickup system. Sensor and bridge geometry are integrated to translate every nuance to the amplifier and speaker system. The big, bold, and brilliant tone looks to the future, yet the sonic ingredients of the acoustic violin are present and can be tamed to become traditional in character. The Polar pickup has the unique ability to analyze the direction of string vibration to enhance the bowed response and to facilitate bow technique. The unusually powerful piezo crystals do not require onboard power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.
The reserve power of a well-set-up electric violin makes the instrument easier to play than a conventional acoustic. The NS WAV 4 Violin's rock maple bridge is easily adjustable for the playing style and action height you prefer; high and powerful like a traditional violin, low and fast like an electric guitar, or anywhere in between. The ebony fingerboard is graduated for each string to optimize the tone and playability of every note. The neck is smooth and fast, with traditional thumb reference points for the scroll and heel. The removable bout provides accurate position reference for players accustomed to using the traditional body shape for reference.
Accurate, stable tuners are the key to in-tune performance. The patented self-clamping tuning mechanism automatically grips the string ever more tightly as tension is applied, and the micrometer tuning is smooth and precise. This set-it and forget-it tuning is light-years ahead of the friction tuners found on traditional instruments.
Light weight and good balance are the essential comfort factors for any violin. The fully carved interior of the WAV 4 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 shoulder rest is contoured and padded to provide stable support, and it's fully adjustable to accommodate differences in playing styles and body types.
The NS WAV 4 violin comes complete with fabric-covered hard foam case, padded on the inside, with room for 2 bows, shoulder rest, output cable, and extra gear.
This is a Nicolaus Amati Copy circa 1920 violin being sold with bow and case. The case appears to be original.
Niccolo Amati was a teacher of Stradavari. Born 1596, Died 1684. His violins are considered technically perfect, and are copied much. He started with a smaller model than Stradavari. Then Niccolo worked on a "Grand Model."
Nicolo (1596-1684), son of Hieronymus, grandson of Andrea, and nephew of Antonio, is considered the greatest instrument maker of the family. His instruments are much admired for their beautiful and penetrating, though not powerful, tone. Violins, violas, cellos, several three- string bass viols, and at least one pochette by his hand are known.
