Our internet & social media manager Kristen plays a CR4 cello and says:
"It's no exaggeration to say this instrument changed my life! Its compact size allows me to tour in a small vehicle with my band. The CR series is NS Design's top-of-the-line, and the tone and playability can't be beat. With no effects, this instrument has a very realistic cello tone - but you can also use it with effects/processors, of course. And I make frequent use of the pizzicato tone setting, which amplifies the bass frequencies and really sounds like an upright bass (I get gigs as a bass player on it!). The tripod stand is adjustable to either sitting or standing height. The cello is a breeze to tune, is easy to play in the high register (position dots!!), cooperates in hot & cold weather, and just LOOKS cool - it gets a lot of attention at performances. Highly recommended to any cellist who's looking to play amplified and/or needs an instrument that's easy to travel with. Try it with the Fishman Loudbox Mini or Mini Charge for a great-sounding combination."
