The SVV200 features a unique blend of tradition and technology: the advantages of an electric instrument with almost acoustic playability and sound. It’s “silent” so you can practice anywhere at anytime. But it also shines in the studio or on stage.
Noise-free circuitry optimized for compatibility with professional audio gear makes the SILENT Viola™ an ideal choice for studio or stage. The built-in EQ can be bypassed when you want to take advantage of high-end outboard equalization equipment.
Violists will immediately feel comfortable with the SILENT Viola™’s standard 16” scale and full-size frame. The all-wood matte black frame has a natural feel, and can accommodate most standard chin/shoulder rests.
The SILENT Viola™’s dual pickup system delivers double resolution and expanded dynamic range. The pickups respond to subtle nuances making it easy to play with full expression, from pianissimo to fortissimo.
A special circuit isolates and controls the instrument’s upper harmonics, providing broad flexibility to adjust for individual playing styles, room acoustics, and amplification equipment, while closely approaching the tone of an acoustic viola.
