Thank you for purchasing this fine Yamaha instrument.
Before You Start……
In order to maximize performance, and to ensure safety at all times,
we recommend you read through this manual thoroughly before
playing your instrument.
Taking Care of Your Instrument
Please follow the guidelines set out below to prolong the lifetime of your violin.
Be careful when transporting the in-
strument. Make sure the instrument is
handled with care and is not subjected
to any rough treatment, like bumping
against other objects or dropping the
instrument.
Only use the violin and bow indoors.
Exposing the instrument to certain envi-
ronments, particularly sudden changes
of temperature, may cause severe dam-
age. Please take the necessary precau-
tions to protect your instrument against
the following:
• Direct sunlight.
Excessively high or low temperatures.
Excessively high or low humidity.
Excessive dust or strong vibration.
Avoid leaving the instrument in a car for
any extended period of time. Extreme
temperatures, such as during the sum-
mer and winter months, can be harmful
to the instrument.
Make sure you regularly clean your
instrument with a soft, dry cloth. Never
use benzene, alcohol, or thinner. Never
use aerosol cans, or any other sprays
within the vicinity of the instrument.
These will damage the lacquer and gen-
eral condition of the instrument.
Prior to shipping the instrument has
been adjusted and is ready for use.
However, should you feel that additional
adjustments are needed please contact
your local Yamaha dealer, as some al-
terations require specialist skills.
• Do not attempt to modify or alter the
instrument. It may make repair impos-
sible.

Cautions Relating to the Instrument
The instrument’s body is made from natural woods (spruce, maple, ebony, etc.) that are
held together with glue. For this reason, there may be some cases in which sudden changes
in temperature or humidity cause the glue to fail, or tuning or performance related prob-
lems. Please pay close attention to the environment and manner in which you use the in-
strument.
In summer or winter seasons, wait until the instrument has adjusted to room temperature
before playing.
Make sure you wipe the rosin dust off from the instrument after you fi nish playing.
The violin is a very delicate instrument. Any of the following can lead to damage and
should be avoided.
Playing or leaving the instrument where it is exposed to direct sunshine.
Playing or leaving the instrument in places with high humidity.
Playing or leaving the instrument close to heat sources such as heaters, etc.
Playing or leaving the instrument where it is in direct contact with cold air coming from
air conditioners, etc.
Plated parts such as the adjusters, metal brackets on the chin rest, etc., may tarnish over
time due to the makeup of the metal plating. This, however, will have no influence on
the performance of these parts. When tarnish first appears, normal maintenance and
cleaning may be enough to remove the tarnish. (If the tarnish progresses normal clean-
ing may not be sufficient.)
As the instrument and many of its parts are made of natural wood, there may be some
cases, where objects that come in contact with the wood (hands, parts of the body,
cleaning cloth, etc.) may become discolored. Color on body parts is not harmful to your
health but you should wash and remove it with water. We can not be held responsible
for discoloration of clothing, etc., or the discoloration of the wood.

and make sure that the bridge is properly positioned. If the bridge is not properly posi-
tioned, place the instrument on a stable surface, slightly loosen the strings, then gently
position the bridge using both hands. Also, make sure that each string is set in its groove.
The side of the bridge with the trademark
(the side facing the tailpiece, the vertical
side) should be aligned with a line running
between the two

Before Playing the Instrument
About the Bridge
The instrument is shipped from the workshop with its bridge properly set and aligned on
the instrument’s top.
After confirming that the bridge is in proper alignment, tune the instrument.
Four notches in the bridge provide proper spacing between the strings.
Make sure that each string is set in its corresponding groove as shown in the illustration
below.

Caution
To obtain the best tone quality and performance from the YVN100S/200S/500S, it
is important that the bridge is properly set as shown in the diagram above. Refer
to the illustrations above when adjusting the bridge.

Before Playing the Instrument
The side of the bridge facing the tail-
piece should be at a right angle to
the body of the instrument.
Bad Bad
Correct
Right Angle
Make sure that the side of the bridge facing the tailpiece is standing at a right angle to
the top of the instrument. If the bridge is leaning either direction, place the instrument
on a stable surface, slightly loosen the strings then using both hands, gently adjust the
bridge’s angle. Make sure that the strings do not come out of their notches.
* Playing with a poorly aligned bridge can result in poor sound quality, and deformation or
damage to the bridge.
[Bridge is placed vertically]
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, and the 4th string to G.
Use a piano, tuning fork, tuner, etc., and adjust
the pitch of each string using the tuning pegs.
When rotating the peg, apply firm pressure to-
wards the peg box.
• After tuning is complete, make sure that the
tailpiece side of the bridge is still properly
aligned. If the bridge is leaning in either direc-
tion, slightly loosen the strings and carefully
re-align the bridge using both hands.
7
The fine tuner on the 1st string can be used for fine tuning the pitch of the string.
Caution
When tuning the strings, do not over loosen or over tighten the fi ne tuner. Doing
so may result in damage to the instrument, or cause noise during performance.
Please note that the fi ne tuner can come into contact with the body and cause
damage if the bridge is removed from the instrument.
Periodic tuning during performance or practice may be necessary. Please tune the instru-
ment in the following manner.
Before Playing the Instrument
The 1st String (E)
• Avoid contact or putting pres-
sure on the 2nd string (A) tuning
peg with your index fi nger.
[Holding the Pegs]
The 2nd String (A)
• Avoid contact or putting pres-
sure on the 1st string (E) tuning

Changing Strings
As the strings get old, sound quality will gradually decrease, and it will become
diffi cult to tune the instrument.
Change the strings as soon as you think they are getting old.
Always change strings one at a time, even when changing all of the strings.

Setting the Strings in the Tailpiece.
Insert the ball ends of the 4th (G), 3rd (D) and 2nd (A) strings into the hole on the
tailpiece from above (or thread the string through the hole from underneath the tail-
piece), then slide the string into the narrow notch and pull up.
Caution
The end of the strings are sharp and can cut fi ngers. Use caution when changing
strings.
When changing or adjusting strings, do not put your face close to the instrument.

Insert the other end of the string into the hole
on the peg, then wrap the string onto the peg.
On the 1st (E) and 2nd (A) strings, make
two windings to the left of the hole, then
the remaining windings to the right as
shown in the illustration on the far right.

two windings to the right of the hole,
then the remaining windings to the left as
shown in the illustration on the left.
Next, make sure that the bridge does not fall
over as you wind the strings. Ensure that the
strings pass over the corresponding grooves
on the top of the bridge.
(Make sure that the tailpiece side of the
bridge is standing vertical to the violin top.)
