However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Yamaha YEV Triumphs At MIA Awards

Yamaha has announced its success with the YEV Electric Violin, as it recently won the award for best bowed product at the MIA awards. Judges complimented the violin's contemporary style, framework and high quality pickup, describing it as elegant and fantastic.

Unique Design

The YEV-104 has a unique design that has real presence on stage. A Möbius strip like design provides continuity between front and back The instrument's striking three dimensional form is sure to turn heads and enhances the natural beauty of the woods and materials used.

Easy Transition From Acoustic Violin

The YEV-104 is the same shape as a traditional violin so it can accept all your standard shoulder rests and tailpieces. It should be an easy transition for any player to make and the form contributes well to overall an overall natural musical resonance.

Select Tonewoods

Carefully selected Maple with Mahogany and Spruce are joined in a 5 layer construction which results in excellent response and a natural sound. A 5 layer oil-finished Walnut frame offers an ideal blend of flexibility and strength for life on the road.


the same highly regarded high-output pickup from the SV250 is used on this YEV-104. While effectively picking up the sound of the entire instrument, it also captures the instrument's response and expressive bowing nuances employed by the player. A selector switch alternates between direct output of the pickup signal or output via the instrument's volume control. Direct output delivers the instrument's full sonic potential with rich lows and punchy impact.
