Combining superb playability with a beautiful design, the YEV is a next-generation electric violin perfect for stage use. Extremely strong and lightweight, the YEV stands out on stage for having no apparent rear surface, regardless of the angle it is viewed from, and breaks down the barriers of genre to represent the greater freedom of the music world. There are four instruments in the series, with both four- (YEV104) and five-string (YEV105) models, in natural and black variations.

Shaped into a beautiful silhouette with skillfully applied wood details, this next-generation violin takes design reduction to its logical conclusion. By removing as much material as functionally possible, Yamaha maintains the identifying shape of a violin while eliminating the rest. The YEV electric violin is an exquisite musical instrument that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to play and listen to.
