      Practice silently yet with full acoustic resonance.

      The SV130 provides violinists of all levels with the ability to practice confidently without disturbing others. Though the acoustic sound produced is barely a whisper, with headphones you will hear yourself in the rich, virtual environment of a resonant concert hall. Onboard reverb lets you adjust the ambiance. The addition of an MP3/CD input accommodates play-along practice. An added 1/4" output allows the Concert Select Silent Violin to be plugged into any standard instrument amplifier and played like a normal instrument.

      Features

      • Feels and plays like a high quality instrument
      • Allows you to practice silently
      • Onboard reverb for adjustable ambiance
      • MP3/CD input for play-along practice
      • 1/4" output has been added for plugging into a standard instrument amplifier

      Enjoy genuine acoustic instrument feel during practice without disturbing anyone.

      Comments about Yamaha SV-130 Series Silent Electric Violin - Instrument Only:

      This Yamaha is very nice. I like it a lot and it looks rather nice. I bought the Navy Blue model. The neck and body is made out of spruce and it looks very nice with the blue varnish. It sounds rather nice, but it can't beat a normal acoustic violin at all. It's rather easy to play and it's not entirely silent. It's quiet, but not "Silent," if that makes any sense. I would describe it quieter than a practice-muted acoustic, but loud enough to actually practice without disturbing anyone.

      The lower tones sound more muted than the higher tones. It's a nice sound, but I wish it sounded just a little more acoustic. I recommend this for those who are just getting started with playing an electric violin, but if you are looking for an upgrade you should expect to pay a bit more for better sound.

      It came with a custom shoulder rest, headphones, an aux cable, and 2 AA-batteries.

      The violin doesn't come with many features in terms of effects. It only has 3 reverb settings, a normal setting, and an analog volume knob. You can use a 1/4" instrument cable to hook it up to a amp or PA system. It has an aux input and a headphone jack with adjustable aux input volume. Great for playing along to other music.

      I like it a lot, but in the future I plan on buying a nicer electric violin when I get better at the violin.

      I got this violin and it has met every expectation and exceeded a lot. It's great for practice and even better when you perform with it.

      Practical

      By abarton

      from Washington DC

      Comments about Yamaha SV-130 Series Silent Electric Violin - Instrument Only:

      I love using this interchangeably with my regular violin. It's very comfortable and light [obviously!], and I love the effects when listening with headphones. It's not completely cilent outside the headphones, but enough for me to play at 1 am without bothering others. My favorite part is the ability to plug it in with my computer or Zune and play along with other recorded music.
