(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

Bridge and Body Pickups

The Yamaha SV250 violin features a two pickup design, very similar to the way that an electric guitar does. In order to achieve different tonal qualities, you can select a combination between both the inside body built pickup, which gives a darker tone, and the in-bridge built pickup, which gives a more coarse and bright tone. This allows the instrument to be suitable for all styles of playing: from classical through to heavy rock.

External Control Box

This violin features an outboard control unit that allows you to use the many effects on the violin, but without adding weight to the instrument. That way, the violin is a lightweight and versatile instrument that is suitable for the gigging musician. The control box also has many functions that allow the musician to have a superb sounding instrument to a PA or amplifier. The XLR output gives a balanced output and a -26db switch makes it perfect for studio or live work.

Similarities with Acoustic Violins

The SV250 violin weighs only 500g, which is very similar to that of an acoustic model, meaning that the instrument will be comfortable to hold for players used to playing with an acoustic instrument. The instrument also has the ability to hold a shoulder rest and features the same ergonomic design that is found from an acoustic model, with the black semi violin shaped outline frame.
