The Yamaha SLB-200LTD is a limited edition professional electric upright bass for players who want portability, great feel and a standard string length of 41 inches. Yamaha started design of the SLB-200LTD Silent Bass™ Limited Edition PRO using concepts from the other basses in the series, the SVB-100 and SVB-200. They then upgraded nearly every component and redesigned the instrument to be smaller, more beautiful looking and better sounding than ever before.
The Yamaha SLB-200LTD Silent Bass™ Limited Edition PRO features an improved resonating chamber, luxurious gold finished tuners, Spruce & Mahogany body, curly Maple neck, a gorgeous premium Ebony fingerboard and a rich oil finish.
The tone receives a boost from the redesigned hollow body resonating chamber, the improved bridge design, and a powerful on board preamp with treble and bass dials for total tone control. The preamp can run for up to 1000 hours on a single 9 volt battery but also incorporates a passive direct switch that allows direct output of the piezo signal to external equipment. This lets you tap directly into the pure, focused tone of the instrument to send its output to the amp.
The Yamaha SLB-200LTD Silent Bass™ Limited Edition PRO is fully collapsible and fits into the included compact soft case for easy portability. In spite of its compact design, Yamaha has managed to retain a standard string length of 41 inches as well as all the important bouts and contact points to make your playing experience feel totally at home. To add to the comfort of the playing experience, the bridge's height adjuster wheels allow you to set your string action right where you want it!
In addition, Electric Violin Shop do a full shop setup on this bass, and we welcome you to call us to specify a full classical bridge curve, or a flatter curve for pizzicato jazz playing.
