Yamaha's Silent Bass series offers bassists a choice of two models, both of which feature body and pickup systems deigned to bring out the best tone from each instrument. The SVB-200 is a performance-oriented bass designed with a light and compact body that makes transport to and from the gig simple & easy. The hollow-body design and special internally mounted pickup system deliver pizzicatos which are solid, rich and realistic, and fit naturally into any jazz or pop setting. Built-in electronics offer plug-and-play simplicity and the detachable frame gives the instrument a feel and playability close to that of an acoustic bass.
The SV-200 features a detachable frame that provides excellent support and comfort when playing but are easily removed for transport. The SVB-200 is designed to break down and fit into a compact case which can be carried comfortably using a shoulder strap.
Volume, Treble and Bass controls on the SVB-200 provide straightforward control over the instrument's tone while its active electronics offer plug-and-play operation without the need for external pre-amplification.
