Yamaha Electric Violin YEV-104, Natural
Inspired by craft and design elements of Yamaha acoustic guitars, Yamaha set out to design a new kind of electric violin made primarily from wooden materials. This instrument takes a design cue from both violin and acoustic guitar shapes, creating a beautiful yet amazingly lightweight instrument made with six different woods. These wood materials are carefully crafted with an airy infinity loop-like design, representing the dimensions of acoustic space, and is as stunning visually as it is fun to play. Using a unique Yamaha bridge pickup that carries over from professional Yamaha Silent Violins, this instrument delivers a smooth, organic and warm tone. The design incorporates a simple ¼” input to match the clean and natural aesthetic of this innovative electric violin.
Carefully selected maple with mahogany and spruce in a 5-layer construction results in excellent response and natural overall sound.
A 5-layer oil-finished walnut frame offers an ideal blend of flexibility and strength in a design that is not only striking, but also contributes to natural musical resonance.
The same type of high-output passive bridge pickup that is a highly regarded feature of the SV250 is used. While effectively picking up the sound of the entire instrument, it also captures the instrument’s response and expressive bowing nuances employed by the player.
Selects direct output of the pickup signal, or output via the instrument’s volume control. Direct output delivers the instrument’s full sonic potential, with rich lows and punchy impact.
