    Great Silent Violin

    0 5/5 F. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Concert Select Silent Electric Black 4/4 Violin 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

    QUALITY AND SOUND

    0 5/5 Cali gadget guy "Cali Gadget Guy" (Southern California) - See all my reviews This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Concert Select Silent Electric Black 4/4 Violin I choose the SV-130 because you do not need a separate power unit to play it. Just plug it into an amp or sound system with any 1/4" instrument cable. The workmanship is Yamaha quality. The action was high so I made a new bridge for it. The reverbs are not over powering. I put Daddario Preludes on it. The ebony tuning pegs work nice and hold tune. It would be nice to be able to use any shoulder rest on it but the one for it works fine. The sound of course is not acoustic but it is nice. For quiet practice it is just that. It comes with ear buds and you can plug an MP3 player into it to play along to songs with. Mine did come from the dealer with the bridge in place. I would think anyone buying this price violin knows how to stand up a bridge and tune it. Violin cases are plentiful everywhere. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 4, 2014

    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

    Way too expensive for its value.

    0 1/5 Shimmy Weitzhandler "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

    Still unsure

    Some days I absolutely love it, others I just hate it! The sound is very good as long as you keep the volume in the mid levels (as all e-violins). I have 4 problems with this violin though:1) It was very hard getting used to the chin rest, it's not interchangeable and it was very uncomfortable at first, but you learn to accommodate to it.2) The batteries shake on certain notes, creating a buzz. It's fixable though by adding a little extra padding with the batteries but I see it as a design flaw3) The saddle on the head part of the neck is a bit too tall. You either get used to that or you sand it down. I chose option A4) Its very hard to play dynamically but that is an attribute to ALL e-violins.But this violin has its pros too:1) It is aesthetically absolutely gorgeous2) The feel is great. I know when I go back to an acoustic violin there will be no bad habits from playing this instrument.I was torn between this one and the wood brand... 3/5 Werner Hoefner - See all my reviews, July 7, 2013

    Versatile, strong sound and great action.

    0 5/5 RW (Park City, UT) - See all my reviews This review is from: Yamaha SV-130 Concert Select Silent Electric Brown 4/4 Violin I love the different modes that are available and the fact I can use headphones. I have plugged it into my old tube amp as well as my newer acoustic amp with very good results. I find the chin rest to be comfortable. The bridge was set nicely as well. Very solid fiddle. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 16, 2014

    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.
