THE NS ELECTRIC CELLO


MORE THAN ANY OTHER ELECTRIC CELLO
 on the market, the NS Electric Cello is designed for performance excellence in the plugged in world of effects, amplifiers, and high-powered sound reinforcement. The NS Cello line-up includes the sophisticated CR Series with its active electronics, and the straight-ahead pro level NXTa Series featuring the new battery-free active output electronics, and our most affordable high performance WAV Series. Regardless of model, the NS Electric Cello is an extraordinary extension of the cello's long evolution, letting it share the stage on equal terms with other electrics. The Polar™ Pickup system, which is at the heart of every NS, delivers full-bodied natural tone, absent troublesome wolf-tones, with an amazingly even and pleasing response in every range. The stand and strap system options offer exceptional mobility and freedom on stage.
