From the beginning we have focused on developing an amplified sound that retains and projects all the subtlety and nuance for which the traditional violin is known. With the introduction of the N·V violin, we feel we have arrived!
Utilizing age old techniques of bent sides, linings and carefully graduated tops and backs, the N·V differs from the traditional violin in that we eliminate the f-hole, bass bar and sound post; essential elements of volume and projection of the acoustic bowed instrument. Our design focuses instead on tone production through the use of plate graduation,voiced tone bars and air chamber tuning, The body of the sound is transmitted? throughout the entire instrument, directly into the pickup.
This is an acoustic instrument, designed to be plugged in. When fitted with the new Aceto/Violect Pickup System it has quite simply the best sounding, top-shelf amplified acoustic violin.
