Overview

This is the fretted five-string version of the NXTa violin collection. It embodies great 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.

The features of the NXTa were developed in close association with professional performers and NS engineers for ergonomic, tonal and aesthetic considerations, and result is one of the most playable and versatile instruments of its kind on the market.

A rock maple bridge is easily adjusted to the desired action height, and a contoured ebony chin rest comes standard. The Custom Shoulder Rest is highly adjustable, and its base can be readily formed to fit the chest and shoulder perfectly. The patented tuning system built into the bottom of the body allows quick, easy and precise adjustment, exceptional pitch stability, and easy string changes.

At the heart of the NXTa is the Polar Pickup System, whose piezo components convert string vibration directly to signal output. This provides a balanced, tonally rich output, offering a wide range of expressive opportunities. Arco and Pizzicato have significantly different vibration characteristics, and the Polar Pickup faithfully captures both.

Dual Mode Output
The new dual mode signal output electronics of the NXTa takes the convenience, versatility and performance capability of the NXT to another level.

Active Mode
Using the supplied charger, plug the NXTa into any AC outlet for 60 seconds to power the capacitor-powered active circuit for up to 16 hours of performance time. The instrument can then be plugged straight into any low or high impedance device, no direct box necessary. Since there is no signal loss over the full frequency spectrum of the instrument, the fundamentals of every note remain clear and strong, even with extra-long cables.

Passive Mode
The NXTa can be played in this mode when using a direct box or an amplifier with high impedance input. (This mode provides performance capabilities identical to the original NXT.)

Eco-Friendly Operation - NXTa instruments are battery-free, eliminating the hassle and cost of batteries while helping protect our environment.
