The Yamaha SVC-110 does not collapse into a smaller shape for travel/storage like the SVC-210 and SVC-50 cellos do; it retains both the overall shape and physical reference points of a traditional acoustic cello. Great for students and professional classical musicians who need a more durable instrument with "silent" practice capabilities.
Equally at home in concert settings, the Yamaha SVC-110 is for electric cellists who need to play at higher volumes to be heard over the band. No need to worry about the feedback that typically plagues acoustic cellos amplified with an aftermarket pickup system.
Includes a nicely padded gig bag.
Excellent Review by Wendy valentic
First of all, I was impressed with the physical beauty of this instrument. It's made out of wood and feels like silk. It fits well with my body. I'm still experimenting with the sound but it's a pleasing satisfying cello sound. I love being able to control the sound based on different needs. With my acoustic cello, it seemed no matter how much I dug in, I didn't get the sound I wanted. Also, it's great to hear my playing come at me through the speaker because I can actually hear what is working and what needs improvement. I know an electric cello is not for everyone, but I feel like I've entered a new phase of cello playing. One note about the Electric Violin Shop-they give outstanding service. I don't feel like I've bought an instrument, I feel like I've joined a family. (Posted on 8/18/15)
