Designed to meet the needs of the professional performer playing diverse styles, the SV-255 establishes a new benchmark for sound quality and player comfort. An innovative dual pick-up bridge allows the performer to blend the tone from an edgy electric to a rich acoustic sound. An external control box reduces the weight of the violin to 500 grams, roughly the same as a traditional acoustic violin.
The Yamaha SV-255 Silent Violin Pro is extremely lightweight. All of the electronics have been moved to a preamp that can be mounted on a pedal board or worn on a belt clip. The sturdy, professional preamp has bass, treble and volume controls, as well as an unbalanced 1/4" and an XLR output. You even can run it on phantom power instead of batteries.
The Silent Violin Pro utilizes both the body pickup common to the SV-200 and Yamaha's dual-piezo VNP-1 transducer bridge. A blend control on the back of the instrument lets you select how much of your output signal comes from each pickup. The SV-255's excellent tone and light weight make it feel like "home" to classically-trained players. It holds any standard shoulder rest firmly, and the outboard preamp is of excellent build quality.
