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:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • 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.

Inspired Design

This uniquely designed Mobius strip shape produces continuity between the front and the back of the YEV-105 electric violin. The shape features a three dimensional form that appeals to almost any audience when played live.

A Lightweight and Convenient Design

The design is lightweight and consists of natural touch points and smooth curves that both enable the player to glide easily between the YEV and a standard acoustic violin. The shape of the violin conveniently fits most standard shoulder rests, chin rests and tailpieces.

Effortless Sound

The sound of an instrument is that of great importance and this violin will not let you down. Produce effortlessly smooth and organic sounds aided by the natural resonance of the wood.


The materials used to produce this natural looking body all play a part in the production of rich, strong tones that are made as the bow grips the strings.


Flexibility and strength are two components gained from the walnut frame featured on this acoustic violin. The YEV-105 violin has a 5-layer wood design that is striking. As well as this the design contributes to the natural resonance vibration that is produced when this instrument is played with a bow.


Engage your audience with the attacking and expressive blowing nuances that are produced when using the professional-grade bridge pickup, originally used on the Silent Violin Pro series.

Signal Switch

The selection process of direct outputs of the pickup signal are controlled by the on-board volume control bypass. This direct output shows off the instruments full sonic potential whilst featuring it's rich lows and punchy impact.
