The Yamaha SVC-110SK Silent Electric Acoustic-Body Cello provides the opportunity to play in the rich acoustic environment of a concert hall without having to be there. A redesigned resonating chamber helps produce the most realistic and "acoustic-like" string tones and resonating sound. Yamaha designers worked together with some of the world's greatest cellists to create the SVC-110, and the talent and inspiration of these artists is reflected in its beautiful warm tone and comfortable playability. The SVC-110 plays and sounds so similar to a fine acoustic cello, that players will find it surprisingly expressive and comfortable to use. But they will also appreciate being able to practice whenever, and wherever they want to thanks to the "silent" function.
Full, Rich Tone Enhanced With Spacious Reverb: Tone is what makes an instrument special. The SVC-110 possesses a warm, full-bodied tone with the natural characteristics and nuances found in any acoustic cello. What's unique is its ability to place that sound in the rich acoustic environment of concert halls, without any external processing equipment. A specially designed chip by Yamaha digitally enhances the SVC-110's sound with reverb. Simply select from the Large Hall, Medium Hall or Room settings to hear yourself in different virtual performance environments.
Practice With CD's, Connect To A PA: In addition to the cello's reverb section, the instrument is also equipped with Auxiliary In, Line Out, and Headphone Jacks. Connect a compact disc player, mini disc player, or cassette deck to the input jack and play along with your favorite recordings. This is an extremely useful feature when practicing. With the output jack connected to a P.A. or external audio system you can perform live.
Beautiful Sound, Beautiful Appearance, The Ultimate Cello: The SVC-110 features a hollow body structure with a newly designed pickup system for an incredibly natural sound closely resembling that of an acoustic cello. The warm tonal harmonics of the cello are preserved and enhanced with solid, crisp sounds which work well using an amplifier and speaker. The new finish highlights the natural beauty of the wood making the SVC-110 look as good as it sounds.
Fast and Easy Setup: Setup is fast and easy with large knobs that quickly attach and firmly fix the supports in place. In their performance configuration, they provide the player with a totally natural feel and excellent support.
