The NS Design WAV is a fantastic 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 these instruments for unmatched performance.

Save $150 off regular price by buying used. This pre-owned WAV5 is in the lovely custom blue transparent finish with the figured maple violin body showing through. The violin is in perfect working condition and the instrument itself is flawless. The only cosmetic defect is on the shoulder rest, where some of the black paint has bubbled and peeled revealing the aluminum underneath (see closeup image).

Includes original custom NS Design WAV violin case.

The NS Polar Pickup System 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 on-board power, for maintenance-free performance without the hassle of batteries.

The WAV series bridge is crafted from rock maple and is easily adjustable.

Other standard features of the WAV Violins include a graduated ebony fingerboard, a smooth and fast neck, and a removable bout for accurate position reference.
