With its stunning minimalist look, the SVC-50 Silent Cello is the perfect partner for practice and for performance - and a revolution when it comes to portability.
Featuring the same high quality pickup system as its bigger brother, the SVC-110, the SVC-50 sounds incredible. When it comes to getting from gig to gig, we designed the super-slim SVC-50 to easily dismantle, allowing the entire cello to fit into a compact case.
Our cello makers worked together with some of the world's greatest cellists to create our Silent Cello range - and the talent of those artists and artisans is brilliantly reflected in the warm, rich tone and familiar playability of the instruments.
The SVC Series plays and sounds so similar to a high quality acoustic cello that cellists feel immediately at home - but with the added convenience of being able to practice whenever and wherever they want with headphones.
"These instruments have incredible potential. Although first developed for use as a practice instrument, they have opened a new door of possibilities for the cello by the use of electronic technology ... I enjoy performing with this musical instrument and am challenging musical audiences worldwide to open their minds to a future of new sounds from the cello."
David Geringas, Cello Soloist
