THE NXTa electric violin series, with new active output electronics, embodies physical elegance, tremendous ease of play, and amazing tone. Crafted to exacting standards in the Czech Republic, this series sets a high standard for performance and versatility in any setting.

• Standard contoured ebony chin rest
• Standard highly adjustable custom shoulder rest
• Patented tuning system built into the bottom of the body
• Polar Pickup System with piezo components that convert string vibration directly to signal output
• Dual Mode Output

• Eco-Friendly Operation - NXTa instruments are battery-free

• Scale Length: 330 mm (13")
• Body/Neck: Solid, straight grain maple, with maple face
• Body Reference Bout: Black-dyed maple bout on treble side provides standard violin reference. Easily removable for unrestricted neck access
• Fingerboard: Hand-graduated, asymmetric relief. NXTa violins are also available with fretted fingerboards
• Bridge: Black-dyed maple, height adjustable via screws on back of body
• Strings: NS Electric Strings standard. Compatible with standard violin strings
• Precision Tuning Hardware: 40:1 fine tuners are mounted on the body behind the bridge for precise, stable tuning. Automatic string clamping allows for quick, easy string changes
• Pickup: The Polar directional piezo pickup system responds selectively to either lateral string vibration (for dynamic bowing) or vertical string vibration (for remarkably even and sustained plucked/pizzicato sound, like a mandolin). A switch allows the player to choose the desired response
