Wave electric violin is a concept violin proposed to Yamaha, the number one manufacturer in this industry. This concept design was inspired by the designer’s experience as violin player. As a 10-years violin player, she has noticed that playing a violin requires a lots of practice and correct posture in order to play beautifully, people need the right technology to improve their performance faster and easier. You can read the designer explanation below.
As a 10yrs violin player, I noticed the very slow learning curve of violin. To play it beautifully, it requires tremendous time and effort to have correct posture and habit. People practice violin average 2-3 hours everyday for 10 years. 10 years makes a kid become a lady. However, still middle or advanced amateur level.
So this is for all learners from beginner to advanced amateur level. People who want to improve their performance level easier and faster with the right technology. (Violin has not been evolved technologically for 5 centuries.)
Also, according to my interview and my experience, they need to feel comfortable between a chin and shoulder rest to focus better on their practice, want to accomplish music pieces easier and faster to keep motivated and need to be aware of their posture to get used to the right posture easier without correcting wrong habit.
So, I am proposing a new violin to Yamaha, the number one maker in this market, Wave Electric Violin. First is auto tuning touch wheel. You don’t need to try to adjust the tight and wooden tuning pegs. Just drag in circular motion to tune. Your ears will get used the right sound of it whenever you practice. Second is Braille display to indicate the correct fingering. Just follow the bumps on the finger display. Your finger will remember the right fingering. Also, the diagonal pattern on the shoulder rest stretches just enough to make you feel comfortable. Even, the chin rest is adjustable. Also, when you practice, your arm will fall down in 20 minutes. Accelerometer will detect and stop playing if your arm falls down.

Wave Electric Violin is made out of polished aluminum honeycomb, so very light to make you feel less fatigue, but strong enough. Also, the overall proportion and angle differences between the four strings are exactly the same with acoustic violin. So, you can switch between acoustic and electric whenever you want.
For the first time, violin becomes smarter. Wave Electric Violin itself teaches you and leads you to the next performance level easier and faster.
