The Yamaha SV 200 Silent Viola offers all the advantages of an electric instrument --- easy amplification without feedback, the use of effects, silent practice, etc. – while still feeling, playing and sounding similar to a high quality acoustic violin. It is a perfect instrument for performances at concert halls, studios or outdoor stages.
Noise-free circuitry and line out impedance optimized for use with professional audio equipment make the Silent Viola excellent for use on stage or in studios where quality sound is a must.
The Silent Viola's standard 16" scale and full-sized frame design will make the violist feel comfortable from the start. While providing a more natural feel, its all-wood frame is finished with a special black matte finish and can accommodate nearly any standard chin and shoulder rest.
A special circuit designed by Yamaha isolates and controls the instrument's upper harmonics, which have a great influence on the overall tone. Modifying the tonal color makes it possible to adjust to individual playing styles, room conditions, the PA system, etc.
