Questions About Electric Instruments?
We get a lot of questions about electric instruments, pickups, and amplifiers, and different set up scenarios. This video covers some of the basics about:
- Passive vs. Active Pickups
- Preamps and Amps
- Silent Practicing
- Recording to computer/ios devices
We try out different set ups to find out if it'll work, or if it's wack!
I recently purchased the YEV-104 after installing a pickup on my acoustic violin because the amplified acoustic is a completely different sound. I have played music most of my life and sometimes you just need a good electric instrument to provide the tonal control because an amplified acoustic is an amplified acoustic and will always sound that way. This instrument gives you full control and it sounds excellent. The bidirectional pickup responds very well to horizontal and vertical bow pressures and the tone of the instrument is surprisingly rich, full and strong. Many electric instruments I studied were very crisp and bright with no lower end but the YEV is very rich with powerful lows and clear highs. The YEV is also passive, which means you just plug it in like any guitar and play. There is no preamp to give you battery problems or interfere with wireless transmitters. The instrument is very light a just over 16ozs and plays very comfortably.
A surprisingly natural sounding electric. Direct output mode is exceptionally rich, crisp, and detailed, perhaps even more so than the SV200. The violin itself doesn't offer any onboard effect. But with a bit of reverb it becomes truly inspirational. I also use mine for silent practice with a VOX amPlug2 AC30 headphone amp which plugs right into the well placed output under the violin, a perfect fit as if they were made for each other. I highly recommend this combo over the plastic and overpriced SV150 for silent practice. The factory setup is also just about perfect, making it fun and easy to play. Higher positions on E and A may be a tad bit low but I got over that after a few hours. The pegs are great as so the fine tuning tailpiece the violin seems to accept any standard shoulder rest, tailpiece, and chin rest too). The beautiful shape doesn't do much for the player. As it turns out, the m�_bius strip is completely out of view when the violin is held in playing position. But that is to say, if feels and plays much like an acoustic if not a tiny bit heavier. A true wonder in all its simplicity.
From ordering to receiving it was a super experience. The service was excellent, shipment was fast. I can highly recommend using Fiddlershop
I have the violin yev104 in my hands for a few days, and I love it! It's really beautiful, and it has a great sound. As always, the quality of Yamaha is impeccable. Thank you very much Fiddlershop !!!! Total and Absolutely satisfied with my purchase. And of course this violin is highly recommended for those who want to enjoy a violin with great sound.
Arrived perfectly padded, playable straight of the box with a little tuning. Love! plugged in and started right away, what's not to love about his, it's a work of art…got the black, looks really classy. No problems switching from regular violin, handling and weight felt the same. Tried a few amps, the acoustic crate seemed to work the best so far, great sound, can now drown out everyone else!!! Can't beat this price for sound and looks in an electric. Thank you Fiddlershop.
