**4-string model pictured.

The NS WAV electric violin is the perfect electric violin for any player interested in exploring the world of amplified or electronic performance. Full, natural tone, outstanding comfort, and sophisticated design are combined in an instrument which is simply a pleasure to play.

The NS WAV electric 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.

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 rock solid tuning is light years ahead of the friction tuners found on traditional instruments. 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 the custom 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. The optional adjustable chin rest is also available for players wanting a more extensive range of position adjustments for more customized fit and comfort. The WAV also accepts NS Design's revolutionary balanced shoulder rest, which "floats" the instrument in the desired playing position.
