Separate Control Box

The SV150 concentrates on the silent violin being a lightweight and easy to use with its separate control box. In the same way that you would use a guitar pedal board, the silent violin uses a pedal which lightens the weight to that of a standard violin; less than 500g! The control box operates all the performance tools you need, including 24 stunning effects, ranging from delays and reverbs through to distortion and modulations. As well as that, there is an inbuilt tuner and metronome so your case isn?t cluttered with extra bits and pieces.

Acoustic Properties

Despite being an electronic instrument, the SV150 violin also offers a set of acoustic properties that give it the rich and warm sound. A spruce body combined with an ebony fingerboard and maple neck provide that great link between acoustic and electric properties. Fitted with an Aubert bridge, the sound is transferred from the Daddario helicore strings to the body via a quality maple bridge that creates an organic sounding instrument.

Integrated Digital Audio Player

The silent violin also comes with capabilities to play along to all your favourite MP3, AAC, WaV or MIDI files via the SD card provided. Simply plug it and play along. Suitable for practising those tricky ensemble parts or simply playing along to your favourite tracks, the inbuilt technology means you don?t need any other cumbersome technology.
