The NXTa Active Series Cello, To be had with 4 or 5 strings, fretless or fretted, opens up new vistas for the serious cellist. Crafted in the Czech Republic by the makers of the renowned CR Series, NXT series cellos exemplify flawless workmanship at an exceptional value. As a pure electric instrument, the NS cello has certain built-in advantages over an acoustic. One is the virtual absence of wolf tones, an unfortunate fact of life for the acoustic cellist. Another is freedom from feedback in amplified performance settings, this means that that the cellist can move about the stage at will, and better yet, can take solos at any volume. Since 100% of the sound comes via the pickup, the use of looping and other electronic effects in live performance is much easier and far more effective than with an amplified acoustic, where much of the unprocessed sound “leaks” out to the audience. The solid maple body and neck along side the graduated fingerboard contribute to the delivery of a rich, full tone that rings true for every note. Asymmetrical fingerboard relief provides ordinary ease of playability from the lowest to the highest positions. To suit individual player preferences, the fingerboard relief may also be adjusted via the truss rod in the neck, and the string height is readily adjustable at the bridge. A fully adjustable tripod stand can be utilized seated or standing. The optional Cello End Pin Stand provides the seated cellist familiar points of thigh contact and position. The Boomerang Strap System or the Frame Strap System allows the cellist to get up with full mobility for a new experience of freedom and expression. An escutcheon pin on the neck, corresponding to the location of the heel on an acoustic cello, is standard; a more conventional wooden neck heel is also To be had for installation.
