    Great Silent Violin

    0 5/5 F. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Series Silent Electric Violin - Instrument Only Black Instrument Only This violin is great. Easy to tune. Holds a good tune. Sounds great. The bose system I added is a plus. Hits the high notes warmly.WARNING. The violin does not come with strings, violin case, bow, etc. The picture is deceiving.You have to set up the bridge and string in the strings that you must buy separately. Beginner's may have trouble doing this. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 5, 2012

    0 5/5 eViolin - See all my reviews Highly recommended. I'm an experienced violin player (I have several decades of experience playing this instrument) and this violin plays, sounds and feels just like a regular acoustic violin. I use it a lot to practice at night so nobody hears me, it's IDEAL!Also important: the strings and bridge are regular components. So you can go to any violin shop to replace them should you need to do so at one point. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 22, 2010

    0 5/5 Zach (Area 51) - See all my reviews GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I have had this violin for 4 years, Strings still sound great! I plug it up to my Computer using Garageband (Mac). Obviously without speakers its very quiet. You can plug headphones in, and a ipod to play along too.

    I am very happy with this.. A bit pricey, but a very nice instrument.

    I agonized over what electric violin to get and after several weeks I decided on this one. Years ago I made the mistake of buying a beginner level guitar and then never played it again after a couple of years.. This violin I will play until it wears out. It is super lite and I really like the sound. Even the ear buds sound really nice. I plugged it into my acoustic guitar amp and it really sounds nice then. Bass, treble and volume knobs on the violin make a big difference in the sound. This is not always the case with some items.I did not buy this from Amazon, but the electric violin shop. The shipped it out quick and were very helpful on the phone. They even helped me pick out an awesome case. wow.oh sorry, back to this violin. It does make some noise, but I could easily practice in any room in the house and not bother others in other rooms. The ear buds are great. I am not sure how long battery life will be, but so far so good.

    Way too expensive for its value.

    0 1/5 Shimmy "Shimmy" (Israel) - See all my reviews The low rating is for the high cost - money per value - this violin should have costed $700-800 maximum. The current price is an obvious rip-off.- The sound is OK, but could be better- The plastic shoulder stem is too soft and bends all the time which requires over pressure from the shoulder leading to shoulder ache.- You must use the provided preamp, you can use your custom preamps afterwards in the signal chain, but requires carrying an extra weight. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 29, 2013

    Excelent instrument

    0 5/5 Alexander C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Concert Select Silent Electric Candy Apple Red 4/4 Violin I have several years studying violin. I bought this yamaha SV-130 and the sound is amazing. It has a beautiful design, good sound and is very versatile. I have another acoustic violin the Cremona 1260, it is an excellent violin. But when I compared the sound in D string between 2 violins, in the yamaha violin it sounds a little different.But in general this is a good instrument. I bought that I hope, a very good electrical violin.The case, bow and violin arrived in exclt conditions. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 30, 2011

    Usefull for the traveler

    I bought this to take to Afghanistan on deployment so I could practice while I'm here. Its rugged enough that it made the trip with no problems, but I practice it without headphones so I can more easily match the sound with the resonance of the instrument. The headphones sound fine, but I prefer to play without them so I can concentrate on the natural vibration of the instrument.I used it at a country gig the weekend before I came and plugged directly into a Fender Tube amp sans preamp or equalizer, but wasn't happy with the sound - too high. I didn't have time to experiment with tweaking the sound, so thats probably less about the instrument. I enjoyed having the quarter inch jack to plug into instead of having to worry that I was going to scratch the wood on my regular violin with the pickup grip.While deployed, I've been able to plug the violin into my Bose desktop computer speakers and it sounds much better than through the fender guitar amp.
