The NXTa (active) 4 - string violin is crafted to exacting standards in the Czech Republic and embodies physical elegance, advanced ergonomics, tremendous ease of play, and full-bodied tone. In any performance setting, the dual mode signal output electronics of the NXTa takes the convenience, versatility and capability of the NXT series to another level.

Using the supplied charger, you can plug the NXT 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. The NXTa can also be played in its passive mode when using a direct box or an amplifier with high impedance input.
