Beautiful instrument that really sings
Brian W 07.05.2021
After decades of playing piano, trombone, and guitar, I decided to learn a stringed instrument but also wanted something that I could grow into (rather than out of).

The wood selection and woodworking are top notch: the back has beautifully flamed maple, good scroll carving, and a comfortable fingerboard and chinrest. The only defects are an inconspicuous thickness variation where one binding meets another.

The timbre and dynamics are excellent for fiddle music (my preference) as well as my playalongs of opera, theater, and symphonic recordings. With a metal mute, the neighbors are never bothered (or are too polite to mention it). Without the mute, this Yamaha resonates everywhere between a whisper with the bow held at an angle up to shaking the walls playing the first chord of Chaconne from Bach's Partita. I can't judge whether this is more of a solo or orchestral instrument, as I still play violin alone.

The E tuning screw is convenient, yet I haven't had an issue keeping the strings well-tuned with the pegs alone. It took an hour or two to get a good feel for seating the tuners, but once they're tightened, I can hang the instrument on the wall for months without losing a cent---even while airing out the apartment daily.

The case is good. The bow is good and only recently started to lose a few hairs. After two years of daily playing, one of the strings is getting worn near the bridge, but the strings are great.

Caveat emptor: I have no other violin experience, yet I've never felt that my violin feels or sounds like a student instrument.

If you had to buy only one violin and want to play regularly as a hobbyist with a tone you'll appreciate years after your first note, this would be my recommendation. It looks beautiful, sounds great, doesn't cost too much in the world of instruments, and feels nice.

Beautiful Instrument
RS-Ire 27.08.2021
This is a powerful instrument that became louder and brighter over time. It is light and stunning. The pegs sit great and the bridge is perfectly matched.
The only slight negative is the lower register (G-String) does not ring properly. I have tried a lot of different string sets and I suspect it to be due to the base bar.

String was broken on the day it arrived so I had the string replaced and unfortunately threw it in the trash as it was borken, snapped into two! Customer service will not replace it as I may be lying becasue I cannot provide a photo. What a jerk!

Wow!

Vorab: Ich bin von dieser Geige (und dem Zubehör) sehr angetan!

Zur Geige:
Das Instrument kam spielfertig und gestimmt bei uns an - und hält trotz des Versands und der andauernden Nutzung die Stimmung über viele Tage sehr genau bei, was für eine saubere und stabile Verarbeitung spricht.
Überhaupt hat die Geige eine sehr hohe Qualitätsanmutung und sieht zudem noch wunderschön aus - was auch eine Folge der tollen Lackierung ist.
Was mir natürlich besonders gefällt ist die gute Spielbarkeit des Instruments - der Profi wird das sicher schätzen - für den Anfänger oder Schüler ist das unerlässlich, denn man will sich während des Lernens nicht mit den Eigenheiten seines Instruments auseinandersetzen, sondern sich auf das wesentliche konzentrieren. Und das ist hier gegeben: Die Geige spricht leicht an, und man trifft genau die Seiten, die man spielen will.

Zum Zubehör:
Der mitgelieferte Bogen lässt sich über die Schraube sehr schön spannen - Kolofon 'made in Germany' ist gleich auch dabei.
Der Koffer gefällt mir sehr gut und ist sehr hochwertig verarbeitet. Oben gibt's ein Notenfach mit Reißverschluss. Die Geige selbst liegt in rotem Samt sicher in ihrem Fach - ebenfalls mit Reißverschluss und Metallschloss (abschließbar!) gesichert.

Fazit:
Die 'Funktionsteile' wie Steg, Saiten, Feinstimmer sind von Markenherstellern (Wittner etc.)- der Korpus selbst ist (chinesische) Handarbeit von Yamaha. Die resultierende Qualität ist überragend; rund 1000 € sind sicher kein Schnäppchen, aber angesichts der sehr hohen Qualität und des wunderbaren Klangs ist man einfach nur erstaunt, und kann daher immernoch von preiswert sprechen.
