Yamaha EV205 5 String Electric Violin (Pearl Red)
The Yamaha EV-205 is a revolutionary violin that's both aggressive and expressive. A new approach to the design of electric violins has resulted in a revolutionary pickup system. Yamaha's original design sandwiches a maple bridge within a composite shell. Sensors resonate separately beneath each string giving the tone an incredible depth and dynamic range, with an electric edge. Feature gear-style tuning heads for accurate and long-lasting pitch control. Case and bow not included.
Revolutionary pickup system
Sensors under each string resonate three-dimensionally, providing amazing tone.
Level controls for each string and one master level control.
The Silent Practice™ technology that Yamaha founded can also be used as an on-stage, in-ear monitor.
Solid body design
The body/frame and sound board are each carved, solid pieces of maple providing 'acoustic-like' resonance.
Electric guitar technology
The violin is grounded (by grounding custom designed strings to a custom tailpiece) to eliminate interference.
Gear-type tuning heads
Machined heads provide quick and precise tuning.
Custom 'C' string
The fifth string, 'C,' is made to violin length, matching tonal balance and tension.
