This Electric Cello offers the combination of design, performance and affordability exceeding any other cellos in it's class. Compact and light (4.5 pounds!), the WAV cello is a pleasure to travel with, but in terms of features and performance, this instrument is no lightweight. True to the NS tradition, the WAV captures the essence of an acoustic, yet opens up an exciting range of new possibilities.
With electronics are fully based around the NS patented Polar™ Pickup System, the WAV provides amazingly natural cello tone, with freedom from feedback and wolf tones. Since 100% of the sound comes via the pickup, using looping and other electronic effects is easy and far more effective than with an amplified acoustic.
The body design allows effortless access to the full range of the fingerboard, and unparalleled freedom of movement on stage. The special asymmetrical fingerboard relief, a hallmark of all NS bowed electrics, provides extraordinary ease of playability from the lowest to the highest positions. To suit individual player preferences, the string heights can be modified via remarkably simple bridge height adjustment, and the fingerboard relief can be modified using the readily accessible two-way truss rod.
The WAV cello is available in 4 or 5 string models with a variety of color options. All models are shown with Rosewood Fingerboard.
