Silent strings


Designed to meet the needs of the professional performer playing diverse styles, these 4 & 5 string violins from Yamaha establish a new benchmark for sound quality and player comfort. An innovative dual pick-up bridge allows the performer to blend the tone from an edgy electric to a rich acoustic sound. An external control box reduces the weight of the violin to 500 grams, roughly the same as a traditional acoustic violin.

It is the first silent violin with unique hollow-body design; the spruce top & maple back create a resonant chamber under bridge.

157,500 yen.

Love the design, but you'd think they'd at least mention the name of the manufacturer so someone interested could go and look for one.
