A new kind of electric violin taking its design inspiration from the organic beauty of wood, the simplicity of clean lines, and the comfort of light weight, combined with innovative Yamaha sound to create this gorgeous live-performance instrument.
The YEV's lightweight, minimalist design is unmistakably modern, beautiful and functional. Plug it into an amplifier and/or effects device to enable infinite options for practice, recording and performing.
No matter how you look at it, the YEV delivers undeniable visual appeal. The graceful infinity-loop - whether seen from the front, back or side - inspires performers and audiences alike. The YEV's sleek body shape is the perfect complement to the instrument's captivating tone.
Inspired by the craft and design elements of Yamaha's 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 are 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-in input to match the clean and natural aesthetic of this innovative electric violin.
