Superb playabilty, acoustic-like tone, plus extensive practice and performance features.
Yamaha's SVC-110SK Silent Electric Cello is a pioneering instrument that provides cellists with an unparalleled combination of portability, acoustic sound quality and feedback resistance. The SVC-110SK features a chambered spruce body and maple neck that produce rich, nuanced tone through its advanced piezo pickup system and onboard studio-quality reverb. For practice, simply plug in headphones to enjoy lush, natural cello sound in the privacy of your own home. For performance, connect to a sound system and send the same full, resonant tone to your audience without the feedback issues that often frustrate cellists. With a slim, compact body that easily fits in its included gig bag, the SVC-110SK travels with ease so you can play anywhere inspiration strikes.
Resonating Chamber Recreates the Warmth of an Acoustic Cello
At the heart of the SVC-110SK's acoustic sound quality is its resonating chamber, which uses a narrow aperture to enhance the responsiveness and projection of the instrument's spruce top board. The result is a rich, full-bodied tone with complex overtones that sound as though they're emanating from a much larger acoustic cello. This studio-grade acoustic reproduction, combined with lush onboard reverb, provides an experience so realistic that you'll forget you're playing through headphones or a sound system.
Piezo Pickup and Preamp Deliver Natural, Nuanced Tone
The SVC-110SK owes its acoustic authenticity to Yamaha's advanced piezo pickup and preamp system. The piezo transducer is carefully calibrated to capture the cello's entire tonal range with clarity and nuance. The onboard preamp then shapes and refines this signal to sound natural through headphones, a sound system or recording equipment. Adjustable reverb lets you simulate the acoustics of a concert hall for a lush, spacious quality during practice or tailor the ambience to your performance venue.
Ultra-Portable Design Makes Travel a Breeze
With a body nearly 1/3 the size of an acoustic cello, the SVC-110SK is eminently portable so you can enjoy playing wherever you go. Its slim, compact form factor fits neatly into the included gig bag for easy transport in a car or as carry-on luggage. Weighing under 10 pounds, this revolutionary cello won't weigh you down or cause fatigue during long practice sessions or performances. The SVC-110SK's portability and acoustic sound quality make it an ideal instrument for cellists and traveling musicians alike.
Feedback-Resistant and Ready to Perform
The SVC-110SK's minimalist design virtually eliminates the feedback issues that often frustrate cellists in live performance settings with acoustic cellos. Its chambered body produces a warm, resonant tone without the excess vibration that can lead to howling feedback at high volumes. This gives cellists the freedom to move about the stage and play with confidence that their audience will hear a pure, feedback-free signal. With studio-quality sound, portability and feedback resistance, the SVC-110SK is a revolutionary instrument for modern cellists and performing musicians.
