Yamaha Silent Electric Violin

Electric Violin


This strikingly stylish instrument allows musicians to put on a pair of headphones and enjoy the glorious tone of a concert-quality violin. By eliminating the internal amplification cavity which has been used by violin makers since the 16th century, Yamaha has achieved a remarkable dampening of the violin’s acoustic amplification, resulting in an almost-mute instrument. With a headphone output and a line level input that allows you to connect tapes machines or CD players for accompaniment, the Yamaha Silent Electric Violin gives you the perfect practice instrument to hone those grand chops.Yamaha Corporation of America, 3445 East Paris Avenue, S.E., P.O.
