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. (4-string model)

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 1/4" input to match the clean and natural aesthetic of this innovative electric violin.


• Mobius strip-like shape provides continuity between front and back. Three-dimensional form is designed to appeal to the audience when performing live.
• Lightweight design
• Allows for most standard shoulder, chin rests and tailpieces
• Maple, mahogany and spruce body produces a rich, strong tone as the bow grips the string
• Walnut frame brings an ideal blend of flexibility and strength in a 5-layer wood design that is not only striking, but also contributes to natural resonance vibration when played with a bow.
• Professional-grade bridge pickup. While effectively picking up the sound of the entire instrument, it also captures the instrument's attack and the player's expressive bowing nuances.
• On-board volume control bypass 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.

This is a great product. Yamaha has really outdone themselves with this violin. I now plan to add the 5 string version.
