It is a perfect instrument for performances at concert halls, studios or outdoor stages. "I have been playing Yamaha since they introduced the first generation of electric strings. The Silent Violin was a terrific concept – and features through headphones. Of course the most recent models are my favorites, the EV205 and SVV-200 (I am, after all a true viola soul!)."

Viola SVV200 Features

Top Quality Electronics

Noise-free circuitry and line out impedance optimized for use with professional audio equipment make the Silent Viola excellent for use on stage or in studios where quality sound is a must.

Full-Sized Frame

The Silent Viola's standard 16" scale and full-sized frame design will make the violist feel comfortable from the start. While providing a more natural feel, its all-wood frame is finished with a special black matte finish and can accommodate nearly any standard chin and shoulder rest.

EQ Control

A special circuit designed by Yamaha isolates and controls the instrument's upper harmonics, which have a great influence on the overall tone. Modifying the tonal color makes it possible to adjust to individual playing styles, room conditions, the PA system, etc.

Quartets

Yamaha's Silent Viola blends effortlessly with Silent Violins & Silent Cello in a traditional quartet. Traditional only in form – you can play anything, anywhere at any volume!
