Travel with ease
With the SVC-50 electric cello, Yamaha has solved a headache traveling cellists have always had to deal with: finding space for your instrument. Acoustic cellos, because of their bulk, are especially problematic. The SVC-50's slim body breaks down to fit in its included compact gig bag, and will easily fit in your car and in most airplane overhead compartments.
Play silently with full-bodied tone
At Irvine Art & Music Center, we well know that silent practice all too often means tonal compromise. Enter the Silent Cello. With the SVC-50 electric cello, just plug in your headphones, and you'll hear studio-quality cello sound courtesy of Yamaha's piezo pickup and preamp system. This full-bodied, nuanced, and natural-sounding tone is served up in a rich, simulated concert hall acoustic environment, without the need for external signal processing. A proprietary Yamaha chip delivers gorgeously warm and natural reverb in three flavors: Room, Medium Hall, and Large Hall.
Play along — connect to a sound system
In addition to its many other features, the Silent Cello is equipped with an auxiliary input as well as line and headphone outputs. To play along with your favorite music, simply connect an external source to the electric cello's aux input. Connect the line output to an external sound system for live performance. The headphone jack facilitates private practice with lush reverb.
Great live acoustic sound with no feedback
Another benefit of the Silent Cello is what it brings to your live performances. With the onboard reverb effects, you'll send the same miked-up cello sound to your audience that you hear when practicing. And without a large acoustic body resonating from loud stage volume, feedback is a nonissue. You can play this electric cello anywhere onstage with full confidence that your audience is hearing exactly what you hear.
