Great first impression!

21.01.2017
This is my first experience of playing an electric instrument.
I chose Yamaha YEV-105 NT Electric Violin not only for it's elegant design, but because of 5th string and well known Yamaha quality.

Sounds very quiet of course when not connected to an amplifier, but is enough to tune and even practice if you don't want to wake up your neighbors, for example.

Of course it won't replace an acoustic instrument, because as much as I love the variety of sound options, I don't realy like that I cannot control the strength of a sound only with a pressure of my bow. I think now that it would be very usefull to have a volume pedal.

The time is needed to ajust to the strings level and number, but it's much less confusing, then when one starts to play the viola after playing violin. It's light and comfortable and a 5th string is a great feature.

In total I am very satisfied with my choice, it's not the cheepest one, but I believe it's totaly worth it.

Light, sonorous and beautiful violin

Frosty, 31.05.2017
After playing music for many years with acoustic violins, I later joined the band The Band Violin
I wanted to try on an electric violin, on the one hand to explore new possibilities, on the other hand, the handling of an electric violin problem-free as an acoustic with a pickup system.
For me it was important that an electric violin still remains relatively close to the original (especially sonically but also without frets and still recognizable as a violin). I also wanted to be able to use a common shoulder support if possible.

After a first, inexpensive trial that failed to meet my requirements (Harley Benton HBV 990BEM), I knew at least what I wanted or did not want.

As soon as I saw the sleek and unusual design of the YEV-105 or 104 online, I really wanted to try it out.
After I first tried the 4-string version and had already convinced myself of the sound and the processing, I was tempted by the possibility of another, deeper string. The familiarization was quick and a change is now easily possible. Here is an overview of the violin:

+ Clean, beautiful sound
+ low weight and pleasant weight distribution
+ clean and high quality workmanship
+ common shoulder rests usable
+ Jack output on the bottom: no cable is in the way when playing
+ / (-) extraordinary design: Even if you do not feel anything while playing, the violin looks scary in places
+ / (-) Passive pickup with volume control (a decision I make against additional vulnerable components, but does not provide any additional way to change the sound or directly use headphones)

A star deduction is only in the processing, since there was initially a problem with the tailpiece (tailgut), but could be fixed quickly.
