No compromise for young players
It’s possible to enjoy a quality instrument while you’re learning. The Yamaha V5SC’s solid Spruce top and Maple back make a more smooth, warm sound than a lot of student models. These woods have a long life expectancy allowing reliability and peace of mind. The scale 1/2 size model offers younger players all the same level of playing quality.
Not to be superficial but…
The sound quality of this instrument speaks for itself. But we know there’s a thrill in opening your case to a beautiful instrument and this Yamaha guarantees just that. Many formulas were tested to hand-finish this instrument and the final oil selected adds a beautiful, subtle shine.
It’s all about materials
Materials affect your playing, so each is carefully chosen. You won’t want to avoid practice with a hard, Ebony fingerboard to play on. This Ebony gives a rich, dark contrast to the smooth Spruce body. No fear comes with tuning as Wittner is renowned for its top class string components, seen in the Wittner “Ultra” tailpiece with four fine tuners for those final tweaks.
Ready for school
A student’s life can be fast-paced and so can a parent’s! With this complete set there is not the hassle of trying to find a quality bow, strings, case, or rosin. The lightweight materials of the hard, durable casing and included strap make it all set to swing over a shoulder and onto a school bus.
