maduro_maio, 10.04.2016
This violin sounds great and has a very original and appealing design.
NS designs have been introducing less expensive series (NXT and WAV) but the CR remain the top of the range, with active electronics and solid maple body and neck.
The dual mode preamp allows you to choose between a thinner (supposedly more acoustic?...) sound, and a more full bodied one.
The Polar pickup system has two positions, one for playing with bow, the other for pizzicato. The pizzicato option is great, with the sound on the lower strings resembling that of a fretless bass.
The height of the strings can be adjusted and the tuning stability is remarkable.
While you can adjust the shoulder rest to your comfort, the chinrest is not adjustable.
It took me a while to get comfortable with the violin, it is a bit heavy, like most electric violins, but not too much. I don't find it suitable to play standard repertoire (it was not designed for that), but it is great for improvised music, rock/folk/jazz etc. Run it through some pedals and a nice amp and you are likely to get incredible results.

Unübertroffener Klang

Martin717, 14.03.2010
Die Ned Steinberger Violine mit zusätzlicher fünfter C Saite verblüffte vom ersten Ton an und stellte alle anderen von mir gespielten E Geigen in den Schatten.

Sound: Der Klang ist außerordentlich organisch für eine elektrische Violine und hat einen breiten Körperklang durch ein gewisses Maß an Resonanzraum welches sie beherbergt. Die tiefen Töne der C und G Saite tragen sehr warm, weit und mächtig, während die höheren Töne auf A und E Saite eher brillant und genau erklingen.

Klanglich lässt sich das alles direkt an den am Korpus befindlichen Höhen- und Tiefenreglern individuell verändern. Außerdem lässt sich die Abnahme der Anschlagsrichtung der Saiten über einen Schalter in drei unterschiedliche Modi bringen, sodass der Klang für klassische, elektrische oder gezupfte Spielweise optimiert ist.

Verarbeitung: Die Verarbeitung des Klangkörpers ist sehr gelungen und besticht auch optisch durch die Verwendung echten Holzes in Kombination mit einem sehr passendem Lack. Interessante Befestigung der Saiten "reverse" ; dabei verstimmt sich die Geige nicht so sehr wie andere Violinen mit Schnecke das tun. Die Mensur ist wegen der zusätzlichen fünften Saite etwas größer als bei normalen Viersaitern.

Spielen: Das Gefühl für die Schulter/Kinn Stützeinheit entwickelt sich nach wenigen Minuten, sowie das Spielgefühl für die größere Mensur. Es gibt keinerlei Probleme bei den Saitenübergängen und die Ansprache der CR5 ist äußerst gut.

Fazit: Ich kann dieses hochwertige Instrument jedem Empfehlen und würde es nicht wieder eintauschen.
