A r ve r alis

02.01.2017
I had long dreamed of doing a five-stringed violin.
After several hesitations between Yamaha and NS deisgn, I chose this product.
Its cost and bill made me prefer it to his NS design counterpart.
Excellent violin, with regard to the adjustment of the ankles, it is necessary to insist a little (and to constrain some comas higher for 2/3 days) and the instrument hold the agreement.
Perfect return on stage, the sound is much better than with an acoustic acoustic violin.
Only flat, the remote box is still a bit cumbersome and it is difficult to wear it to the belt.

Thank you thomann

Good E-Violin

06.01.2016
The sound of the Stegton pickup still has air upwards and could not quite convince. Very beautiful and natural sounds but the body pickup.
Compared to the SV130, the overall sound is much better. The sound is softer and closer to an acoustic violin. Use it on an ACUS One8 amplifier specially designed for acoustic instruments. That sounds then with some Hall already really great and really convincing. (The amplifier really does a lot in comparison to other amplifiers, which all did not sound so good)
However, at the price of the Yamaha SV255 could be exhausted even more potential.
The headphone output on the supplied pre-amplifier rushes unfortunately and is useless for me. Anyway, the thing with the necessary power supply (if you do not always want to use new batteries) need additional cable and stuff the space that might not have been necessary. Better I would find a direct connection with 6.3mm jack. (This amplifier also has each amplifier.)
The output signal at the line-out is however perfect.
Otherwise the instrument comes without accessories. So still suitcase, good bow, shoulder support (power supply) with.
My assessment: a good instrument, but the high price is not quite justified. The plastic frame and the chin holders as well as the metal shoulder straps look a bit "cheap". The replica of the snail also looks rather bizarre for mass production than for a high-quality instrument. OK. In the end, the sound decides and as you can say that is unfortunately not outstanding (profi-musician) but nevertheless quite good (for advanced) and in my opinion better than a NS-Design NXT violin.
Also the weight is a clear plus and the very pleasant posture (handleboard and neck are optimally designed), so that despite the 5th string no difference to an acoustic instrument is noticeable. The deep C-string and its cello sound, by the way, make great joy, so the 2-sided playing (also with the Pizzicato) can be nicely extended.
