"ARE" technology has realized a richer and deeper sounding.

ARE (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is a Yamaha original wood reforming technology that improves acoustic characteristics by controlling temperature, humidity, and air pressure with high accuracy. The underlying technology is patented. By generating short-term changes similar to aged deterioration of timber that passed a long time, the mid- to low-tone elongation has greatly improved, and the rise of the treble is increased and the damping speed has been increased. By applying this technology to the violin, we get the sound elongation and resonance that makes reminiscent of the matured instruments aged over the years, flexibly responding to the various musical expressions of the musicians.

ARE technology is environment-friendly technology that does not use any chemicals at all.

◆ Patent Japanese Patent No. 3562517 / Europe EP 1291143

It combines manufacturing skills by skilled craftsmanship with the latest technology.

In addition to the basic technology and skills of producing wooden musical instruments for over 100 years, we collect the manufacturing technology of acoustic violin over 10 years. Yamaha pursued "ideal violin" by combining traditional craftsmanship and advanced instrument technology such as high-precision modeling with 3-dimensional CAD and vibration analysis by finite element method.

We adopted antique finish with flavor and texture.


In addition to carefully painted painting, it adopts "antique finish" design that expresses "aged after aging" like a violin used for many years. "Bleaching of varnish", "scratches and varnish accompanying playing and handling", "directing of wood grain (texture)", "secular change of edges", etc. are made, and it has an appearance with taste and texture. Since this "antique finish" is coated with a new coating film after painting, it will not expand or deteriorate in the degree of daily use.

We changed the structure of the coating film by "UV irradiation" technology, and improved the sound quality.

By irradiating ultraviolet rays of a specially selected wavelength, we adopted "ultraviolet irradiation" technology aiming at improving acoustic characteristics by changing the molecular structure of coating films such as varnish. It incorporates not only the appearance of the coating but also the specification that takes into consideration the effect of varnish characteristics on sound quality.
