SVB-100SK Yamaha Silent Upright Bass

Solid-body Electric Upright Bass for both silent practice and performance.

  • Detachable full-size frame
  • Authentic acoustic tone and touch points important to upright players
  • Dual piezo pickups
  • Auxiliary-In for playing along with recorded accompaniment or favorite music
  • Standard 1/4 " output jack

The SVB-100 offers an outstanding tone suitable for a wide range of musical styles, and bassists will appreciate its silent characteristics which allow silent practice while the player enjoys a full-bodied tone through a pair or headphones.

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.

"Yamaha has always been synonymous with highest quality and consistency. Having played my beloved instruments for all these years, I know first hand how they never rest on their laurels, always seeking to improve, with great success. Their support throughout the world and their unsurpassed craftsmanship has made them an important part of my everyday life as a musician."

— Chris Minh Doky, jazz bassist
