NS Designs, founded by Ned Steinberger, develops innovative instruments like the Steinberger NS CR5 Electric Cello – in 4,5, and 6 string versions, extending the possibilities of acoustic instruments previously used only in concert halls.Previously we’ve reviewed an NS CR Series ‘Upright Bass’, and unsurprisingly there are a number of similarities between that and the CR5 Electric Cello. The construction style is almost identical, with a compact Rock Maple body and set Maple neck, with a traditional hand-graduated Ebony fingerboard.
