The NS WAV violin is more comfortable than your acoustic violin, sounds great amplified, and is priced well for the entry-level electric violin market. Includes slim-line case that holds 2 bows, with attached cover with outside accessory pocket.

Get the same shape and exceptional ergonomic feel as the pro-level NS Design CR series violins at a much lower price point! The WAV violin is price for the entry-level market, but feels and performs much better than its price lets on. With a scroll-less head stock design (designer Ned Steinberger's headless guitars and basses made waves--pun intended--in the 1980's), highly carved interior, and patented shoulder rest system, the WAV is lightweight, highly adjustable, and extremely comfortable to play.

The WAV gets its good tone from NS Design's Polar ™ Pickup System, which provides powerful dynamics, rich, full sound, a high sensitivity to the bow, and sustained pizzicato, allowing for a very acoustic-like playing experience.

NS Design's own geared tuner system provides accurate, and stable tuning and makes new string installation easy and fast.

The NS WAV Electric Violin comes complete with fabric covered hardshell case with handle and shoulder strap. It’s padded on the inside, with room for your bow, and compartments for the shoulder rest, output cable, and extra gear.
