The SV-200 offers all the advantages of an electronic instrument - easy amplification without feedback, the use of effects, silent practice, etc--while still feeling, playing and sounding almost the same as a high quality acoustic violin. It is a perfect instrument for performances whether at concert halls, studios, or outdoor stages.
Yamaha craftsmen have designed the SV-200 to have a natural feel, closer to that of an acoustic violin. The oval shaped neck features a thin layer of a specially formulated finish that feels identical to that of an acoustic violin. The frame has been extended further past the chin rest to accommodate nearly any standard chin and/or shoulder rest. The Line Out jack is positioned so the cord can be draped over the performer's shoulder keeping it out of the way during performance.
The SV-200 utilizes a specially designed circuit that isolates and controls the instrument's upper harmonics, which have a great influence on the overall tone and sound produced by the violin. This capability to modify the tonal colour harder or softer provides the SV-200 with great flexibility in adjusting to individual playing styles, room conditions, the PA system, etc. Plus it gives a tone that is much closer to that of an acoustic violin.
The SV-200 uses a two pickup configuration which doubles the resolution for a much greater dynamic range. Pickups are mounted under the two legs of the bridge, and this improved resolution allows the violin to responds to very subtle nuances enabling the performer to play from pianissimo to fortissimo with great clarity and ease.
