    ■ Tuning • The strings are tuned to the following pitches. The 1st string is tuned to E, the 2nd string to A, the 3rd string to D, the 4th string to G and the 5th string to C (EV-205). Use a piano, tuning fork, tuner, etc.
  • Page 9: Changing Strings

    As the strings get old, sound quality will gradually degrade, and the instrument will become difficult to tune. Change the strings as soon as you think they are getting old. When changing strings, use Yamaha strings designed especially for the instrument. These strings are specially designed to eliminate electric noise.
  • Page 10 Insert the string into the hole on the peg and wind the string onto the peg. • Wind the 1st (E) and 2nd (A) strings to the left of the hole as shown in the illustration on the right. • Wind the 3rd (D), 4th (G) and 5th to the right.
  • Page 11: Power Supply

    The Electric Violin requires power when it is operated in the Controlled Mode, or with a pair of headphones. Power is supplied by a single 6F22 (S-006P) 9V battery. Before preparing the power supply, make sure that the Control Section’s LINE OUT and PHONES jacks are disconnected.
  • Page 12: Using The Controls

    ■ About the Controlled Mode The instrument can be operated in one of two modes, the Direct (Passive) Mode or Con- trolled (Active) Mode. Use the Mode Switch q on the Control Section found on the back of the violin to select the mode. DIRECT (Passive) Mode In this mode, the signal produced by the pickup is sent, directly to the LINE OUT jack delivering the instrument’s straight, unaltered tone.
  • Page 13: Using Headphones

The VOLUME knob t can be used to control the monitor volume. * The VOLUME t knob’s setting does not effect the output of the LINE OUT jack. * When a pair of headphones is used in the DIRECT Mode, battery power is required.
