Questions & Answers

Ask a Question:

Answer

The YEV Series has been designed to offer a straightforward connection for use on stage with a powerful tone when amplified. It's ideal for rock performance and is aesthetically stunning.

The SV-250/SV-255 models offer a far more nuanced and delicate tone, extremely faithful to the violinist's performance (but it can sound more powerful than the YEV models if wanted). This makes the SV-250/SV-255 a far more versatile violin, more than capable when used in genres ranging from classical to Jazz, Country and rock and more.

Additionally, the SV-250/SV-255 features a second pickup - and you have the ability to choose one or the other, or to blend the two tones.

The SV-250/SV-255 is used with a control box which contains a high-quality pre-amp and which offers the following:

  • Belt-clip
  • Controls:
    • Main-output volume control
    • Treble control
    • Bass control
  • Outputs:
    • Headphone output with independant volume control
    • Professional-grade XLR balanced output with pad option (-26dB)
    • Line output
  • Power:
    • Option of either mains power (DC) or battery power
    • Ground-lift switch 

If budget allows, the SV-250/SV-255 is the ideal choice for any violinist, offering complete control over tone and professional connections.
