SV255 Yamaha Silent String Violin

SV255 Yamaha Silent String ViolinSV255 Yamaha Silent String Violin


This violin was designed to meet the needs of the professional performer playing diverse styles, this 5 string violin establishes a new benchmark for sound quality and player comfort.

An external control box reduces the weight of the violin to 1.3 lbs., roughly the same as a traditional acoustic violin. This lightweight design is the most comfortable, lightweight professional electric violin available.

This violin has an innovative Dual Piezo Pickups. One is located in the body of the instrument which picks up of the rich vibrancy of the instrument. The other pickup, found on the bridge, allows the performer to blend the tone from an edgy electric to a rich acoustic sound and picks up the player’s subtle performance nuances. You can blend these pickups together to meet your sound preference.

For stage performances there are easy connections to PA equipment. The heavy duty electronic control box, which can be easily clipped to your belt, features a balanced out XLR, 1/4” jack, and 1/8” independent headphone monitor jack. There are also a treble, bass and volume controls.

This is the first Silent Violin™ with an unique hollow-body design. The spruce top and maple back creates a resonant chamber under the bridge, giving you a natural violin sound & feel.

Premium hand-carved wood spruce & flamed Maple make this Silent Violin™ naturally beautiful with a rich shaded brown finish.
