The Yamaha SVC-210 adds a resonating chamber to their travel cello, giving it a more open, acoustic tone. The sound is warm and natural. In terms of tone, this Yamaha Electric Cello sounds fuller than the Yamaha SVC-50, yet still uses a standard wood bridge. We re-cut the bridge to a normal curve (it comes with a non-standard curvature - buy from us instead of the Web catalogs and you'll thank yourself as soon as you start playing!).
Yamaha's design goal was to produce the most naturally acoustic-sounding travel cello they have ever produced. It is indeed close to a full-bodied acoustic tone when played through a properly matched amplifier.
The body of the Yamaha SVC-210 preserves all the contact points of a normal cello - especially the heel of the neck, which is an important reference point for shifting to the higher positions. Tone is excellent, and the built-in reverb warms up your sound. The Yamaha SVC-210 folds down into a small size for easy traveling. The knee outriggers remain attached when you fold it - one less part to remove and forget to pack!
Includes heavy duty gig bag, headphones.
