Summary: I am a beginning player. The overall quality is typical Yamaha fine detail. The neck and finger board are finished beautifully. The reverbs are very nice and not over powering. It is great for quiet practice and with ear phones very nice. The tuner pegs fit nice and are easy to tune.
Summary: I use this violin initially at Friday acoustic gigs, then on wedding gigs and a lot say they love the sound that is like that one on a cathedral hall even if i am not there. Best to be used with pedals like Zoom A2.1u
Pros: Appealing, Good Tone, Lightweight, Modern, Strong
