Yamaha Electric Violin YSV104 - Red
The YSV104 Silent Violin returns to the original Silent Violin concept as a refined practice instrument that provides an ideal blend of features and playability for violin players.
Even without a resonant body, the SRT POWERED system faithfully reproduces the body resonance, sound and ambience of an acoustic violin. The YSV104 is an excellent choice for all players who want to practice quietly with acoustic violin tone.
Although the YSV104 is a solid-body instrument that does not resonate like an acoustic violin, the Studio Response Technology (SRT) POWERED system faithfully reproduces the rich presence and tonal variety that are appealing characteristics of acoustic violin sound. Left and right channel volume, frequency response, and delay have been carefully optimized so that the performer can play while hearing realistic acoustic tone and resonance via the earphones.
The layout of the bridge, tailpiece, neck, and other parts is the same as an acoustic violin, and the ability to use standard off-the-shelf Bridge-type shoulder rests facilitates a smooth, stress-free transition from acoustic violin to the SILENT Violin and back. Proper bow angle and finger placement give beginners a solid foundation to grow from.
