4 String Electric Cello Sunburst or Black w/Polar Pickup System
The NXT Series Cello, available with 4 or 5 strings, opens up a new horizon for the serious cellist looking to play a great instrument on a limited budget.
These new instruments, crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of the renowned CR Series, exemplify flawless workmanship at an incredible value.
Pizzicato and arco techniques have almost unlimited expressive potential, thanks to the Polar Pickup System. A convenient switch allows selection of the traditional arco mode for percussive attack and dynamic bowed response, or pizzicato mode for a smooth, sustained tone. Equipped with single volume and tone controls, the passive electronics deliver unlimited overhead for the ultimate sound without cumbersome batteries.
The solid maple body and neck, together with the graduated ebony fingerboard, delivery a rich, full tone that rings true for every note. The solid body construction, which eliminates the wolf tones which are typically problematic for cellists, also controls the feedback problems faced by many players in an amplified environment. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief provides extraordinary ease of playability from the lowest to the highest positions. To suit individual player preferences, the fingerboard relief can be adjusted via the truss rod in the neck, and the string height is readily adjustable at the bridge.
NS Electric Strings and most traditional acoustic strings fit all NS Double Basses, allowing the player to select from a wide range, each with a unique sound a feel. In combination with the easy adjustment of basic set-up parameters, the NXT Series Cello is adaptable to a nearly limitless range of music styles.
A fully adjustable tripod stand can be used seated or standing. The optional end pin stand provides the traditional cello points of contact and position. The Frame Strap System allows the cellist to stand up with full mobility for a new experience of freedom and expression.
The NXT cello brings unprecedented affordability to the player interested in world-class design, craftsmanship and performance. With a visual appearance a striking as its sound, the roadworthy NXT is an exciting and reliable partner for the most demanding performance career.
