SV-255 BR 5-String Silent Violin description:

The Yamaha SV-255 BR is a 5-string silent violin. Designed to meet the needs of the professional performer playing diverse styles, these 4 & 5 string violins establish a new benchmark for sound quality and player comfort. An innovative dual pick-up bridge allows the performer to blend the tone from an edgy electric to a rich acoustic sound. An external control box reduces the weight of the violin to 500 grams, roughly the same as a traditional acoustic violin.

The main features of the Yamaha SV-255 BR include:

  • Lightweight Design: The most comfortable, lightweight professional electric violin available. At only 500g (4-string) and 530g (5-string), the violin feels like a traditional acoustic violin.
  • 4 & 5 String: 4-string traditional fingerboard, or 5-string with natural fingerboard spacing and a low-C string. 5-string fits regular violin case/gig bags.
  • Dual Pickups: Piezo pickup in the body of the instrument picks up of the rich vibrancy of the instrument, while the bridge pickup picks up the player’s subtle performance nuances. Blend pickups together to meet your sound preference.
  • Stage Performance: Easy connections to PA equipment - heavy duty electronic control box features a balanced out XLR, 1/4” jack, 1/8” independent headphone monitor jack, Treble, Bass and Volume controls.
  • Hollow-body Design: First Silent Violin with unique hollow-body design; spruce top & maple back create resonant chamber under bridge. Natural violin sound & feel.
