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.
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.
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 colour makes it possible to adjust to individual playing styles, room conditions, the PA system, etc.
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!
