Good quality in the middle price segment

Kozel, 24.09.2012
After playing for more than 10 years on an acoustic instrument and especially with performances with electrically amplified instruments with the volume to fight, it was time for an E-violin.
I had already tried a cheap (under 100 EUR) with a friend, which unfortunately had considerable quality deficiencies. So I wanted to spend more, but still including amplifier and multieffekt still remain under 1000.
My choice therefore fell on the NS Design WAV 5, as it is one of the few in a middle price class with five pages. Well.

The processing is okay. Here and there the fretboard looks somewhat uneven in color, but only if you look very closely. Do not disturb me at all.
The shoulder pieces are variably adjustable and comfortable for me. One should be aware, however, that it is difficult to change it because it is integrated into the system and is almost screwed in.
The bridge is made of plastic and well-shaped, so the strings have the right distance to the fretboard. All layers can thus be accessed comfortably. Even with the five strings one has no problems, since they are so arranged that the distances are neither too small nor the angle is great different than with a 4-string violin.
A plus point on the WAV 5 is definitely the mood. One has no vertebrae but only something like finest. Therefore, the mood is quite stable and you have no problems with slipping vertebrae.
The existing strings are not necessarily the very best, but that can be corrected quickly, if you need.

The sound is pretty, more mechanical than an acoustic violin, but the effects are very versatile. I think that the amplifier also plays a decisive role, because the violin does not have a proper natural sound, which forms the sound color, because of its missing corpus.

Overall I would buy the WAV 5 again at any time. The product looks appealing, is good playable and sounds great combined with a high-quality amplifier (and a few effects).
This would be my volume problem with appearances then synonymous best solved (:

I bought this electric violin because I thought the look was cool, and I had read that the sound was good. I have nothing to complain about the sound. But this axle support must be the most impractical available. Or so I just is not got it in the right way, or had an inferior copies. But once you have it in place so it is not stable at all. And the feeling of the entire instrument is a bit småkonstig. My many efforts to get to the axle support has finally resulted in the violin is in his box and not used. But as I said I do not know if there was something wrong at my copy.
