The Silent Violin
The Silent Violin was designed to meet the needs of professional players and amateur performers who are searching for amplified violin sounds for all music styles. This new violin has introduced a new standard for sound quality and player comfort. Its lightweight design is similar to that of a traditional acoustic violin. Players can mix together the electric tone quality and rich acoustic sounds, using the dual pickup system. The external control box features a powerful preamp, master volume control, treble and bass tone controls, as well as quarter inch and XLR balanced outputs. The spruce wood body is finished with a maple neck and bridge, and ebony fingerboard and tuning pegs. As well as this the SV255 violin is fitted with D'Addario Zyex strings, a plastic chin rest and Wittner tailpiece.
The SV255 is almost exactly the same weight as a traditional acoustic violin. As well as this the violin features the same tailpiece, neck and tuning pegs as an acoustic model. The acoustic hollow body design offers a deep resonance as well as a familiar playing feel to an acoustic violin. To capture the resonance of the instrument's body, vibrato and other performance nuances, Yamaha has included a body pickup. In addition to this Yamaha has added a bridge pickup to enhance the vibration of the strings so the attack and bowing are accurately reproduced. The pickup blend control enables optimum balance between pickups. The control box can be clipped to the players belt or other suitable area for accessible volume and two-band tone control. It also features a headphone monitor output with independent volume control as well as a line out jack which is suitable for sending the SILENT Violin™ signal to an amplifier or effect unit. A balanced XLR type output has been included so that players can achieve high-quality connections to professional sound reinforcement and recording equipment.
Ebony is a popular wood, known best for the clear, crisp attacks it is capable of producing. This wood is generally much brighter than maple and has a similar density too. Ebony however has oilier pores than maple and extra brittle grains. As a result of the tight grains this fingerboard doesn't require any finish. This quality gives the fingerboard a natural smooth, quick playing ability favored by many professionals. Although there are many types of wood used to create fingerboards ebony is the darkest of them all. The wood works effectively throughout the instrument’s range and is reliable for years.
