Yamaha Artist Services Indianapolis announced the addition of international violin sensation Lindsey Stirling to the Yamaha Strings Artist Roster. She currently plays a Yamaha SV-250 Silent Violin Pro.
On the article Stirling states:
"For years I tried many different types of electric violins and refused to play any of them until I played the Yamaha Silent Violin," said Stirling. "The clean sound is warm, not shrill or piercing, especially with a touch of reverb. It allows me to use my musicality by capturing a wide range of dynamics. Not only does it sound great, but it also has a sleek, fun, customizable look. Personally, I used rhinestones on mine."
She can be seen playing the violin on the same article.

In this article Stirling states that she used to use the L.R. Baggs pickup:
"My first electric violin was a cheap Yamaha - it was terrible! I eventually purchased an acoustic Roth violin, which I LOVE, and started using an LR Baggs pickup. Honestly, I feel like the amplified acoustic violins get the better sound."

In an interview for Monsters and Critics, Lindsey Stirling has said, "I stopped using the Roth during my live performances because I sweat so much when I perform (eeeew lol!) and the excess moisture was starting to ruin the wood. So I purchased a Luis and Clark carbon fiber violin and have been using it for my live performances ever since. I also used it in my latest YouTube video collaboration with Pentatonix."

Lindsey Stirling is featured here in the YouTube video (around 1:12) for her rendition of "Phantom of the Opera".
Lindsey Stirling has said on the Wood Violins website: "The Viper Violin is definitely the most rockin’ violin I have ever played. Stepping on stage with a violin that cool makes a statement before even a single note is played. Along with having a beautiful edgy look, the Viper has a clean and round sound that can beautifully cut through a loud mix. In my opinion, it is even comparable to an amplified acoustic which is extremely hard to find in any electric sound."
