Yamaha YEV Electric Violin
Elegantly designed and crafted from six different woods, Yamaha's YEV electric violin is lightweight and gorgeous. Clean, straight lines and swooping, sinuous structures define an electric violin that's as beautiful as it is affordable.
The YEV has a passive dual-piezo pickup that produces a natural and resonant tone. Designed for performance, not practice, the electronics are passive, meaning no batteries are required. A volume control knob is accessibly located on the back of the YEV near the neck, allowing for quick adjustments on the fly. A circuit breaker button lets you mute your signal, useful for tuning between (or during) songs. The 1/4-inch jack is located on the back central spine of the instrument, a wise placement that prevents the cable tugging on you as you play. A right-angled cable is recommended.

The EVS Bolt carbon fiber violin bow is the best-performing bow we've ever found under $100. It pulls a great tone from both acoustic and solid-body electric instruments, and is very light and quick in the hand. Balance and feel are comparable to wood bows at least three times as expensive.
EVS Bolt Deluxe braided carbon fiber violin bow is the most affordable quality braided carbon fiber bow we've laid our hands on. A step up from the regular Jet bow in terms of tone production and stability, this bow is going to be hard to beat for under $200!
