Yamaha YEV105 electric violin, 5 strings
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.
Combination of innovative beauty and playability offers you new possibility of performance.
- Easy switchover from traditional acoustic violin
The same shape as acoustic violins accepts standard shoulder/chin rests and tailpiece
- Organic form enhances the feel and qualities of the woods used
Finished to enhance the natural beauty of the materials used (NT model).
Natural sound and response of YEV-105 allows performers to freely bring out their musical expression.
Carefully selected maple with mahogany and spruce in a 5-layer construction results in excellent response and natural overall sound.
* The black model has the same construction, but the layers cannot be seen.
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.
- Selector Switch
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.
