With the addition of the new SLB200‚ Yamaha’s Silent Bass series now offers bassists a choice of two instruments‚ both featuring body and pickup systems that are designed to bring out the best in tone from each instrument.
The SLB200 is a performance-oriented bass designed with a compact body that makes transport to and from the gig a breeze. Utilization of a newly developed hollow body design and new internally mounted pickup system deliver pizzicato tone that is solid‚ rich‚ and realistic‚ and fits naturally into any jazz or pop setting. Built-in electronics offer plug and play simplicity and a detachable frame gives the instrument a feel and playability that comes close to the real thing.
The SLB100’s outstanding tone can handle a wide range of musical styles‚ but classical bassists may appreciate its silent characteristics that allow the player to practice silently while enjoying full-bodied tone through a pair of headphones.
To see just what the Silent Basses have to offer‚ visit your Yamaha dealer‚ and give them a try. You’ll soon see why it would be a shame to keep them quiet.
