5 string Yamaha violin SV-255 with heavy metal distortion

November 28, 2010 22:22

Howdy folks! I just bought a 5 string Yamaha SV-255 violin in the hopes that it would sound more like an acoustic violin right out of the box. Turns out, the tone of the SV255 sounds very electric just like my old SV150, but never mind. It's still good for playing Southern Fried Rock and Metal. hahaha

Maybe Yamaha had originally intended the SV255 electric violin to be a monster rocking Heavy Metal machine!!! haha

Well, if you would like to achieve an acoustic violin sound from your Yamaha Silent violin, one way is to use the "Fantasy" effect that is included in the external SV150 pre-amp box. haha

If you have any other methods to make a Yamaha Silent violin sound acoustic like a real hollow body violin, please kindly post a thread and share your info? I have not found another way yet. Thanks!
