At this year's Musikmesse Yamaha introduced the YSV-104 Silent Violin, a low-volume and practical solution for all of your practice based needs. The first ever silent violin to sport an SRT (Studio Response Technology) powered system, the YSV-104 Silent Violin confidently and comfortably elicits a natural response, deep resonance and acoustic sound quality, typical of acoustic violins.

The violin's bridge houses an on-board pickup which provides clarity and depth to your sound, helping you achieve a full bodied and professional grade tone despite the decrease in volume. With its maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, the violin is able to provide an authentic playing experience that closely resembles that of a premium grade acoustic violin. Not only do the violin's materials encourage a playing experience reminiscent of its traditional counterpart, the very mechanisms on the YSV-104's body encourage an exceptionally similar playability

The violin is able to offer two distinctive sound types-room and hall. Room provides a transparent and short reverb , whereas the latter envisages a more gentle and subtle application better suited to practice based environments. The YSV-104 is the perfect investment for those professional level players who desire the quality and tonal integrity of an acoustic violin but with all the volume based benefits associated with the silent models. Coming equipped with earphones, cables and a control box, the Silent Violin comes equipped with all the tools necessary for you to get playing right out of the box.

Available in three seperate different finishes: Brown , Wine Red and Black , the YSV-104 not only sounds professional but also features premium-grade aesthetics to boot.

This range of violins will be in stock at Gear4music in Mid July and are currently available for pre-order now.
