Perfect for stage performance or studio recording as well as Silent Practice, the instrument offers realistic "acoustic-like" tones and powerful sound, produced via the newly designed resonating chamber and three onboard reverb presets.

Lightweight and versatile, the SVC-110SK is convenient for travel. It comes equipped with headphones, a 9V battery and a protective gig bag that can be carried like a backpack.

In addition, the cello can be attached to an MP3 or CD player, enabling musicians to play along with their favorite songs or any other type of pre-recorded accompaniment.

"The Yamaha lineup of Silent/Electric strings continues to be the popular choice for professional and student performers," states Yamaha Strings Marketing Manager Ken Dattmore. "Each addition has allowed players to push the envelope and broaden their musical horizons. The SVC-110SK not only meets their challenge, it surpasses it, taking our String line to the next successful level."

The cello was featured in a February performance with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra. World renowned cellist David Geringas performed a piece using the SVC-110SK that was specially written for him by Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür. This unique instrument gave Geringas tonal and dynamic possibilities not achievable on a conventional cello, while preserving its characteristic sounds.

The SVC-110SK can be used in conjunction with Yamaha's Magicstomp effects processor as well as the STAGEPAS300 portable PA system.
