Questions & Answers
Question: How do the YEV Series models compare with the SV250 and SV255 Silent Violins?
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.
