Plays and sounds like the real thing, but it's easy to move.
If you're tired of lugging your acoustic bass, the Yamaha Silent Electric Bass is for you. Its removable frame offers portability while providing natural feel and support. This 3/4-scale Yamaha bass can be played pizzicato or bowed for a full, rich tone. Its 3-ply body design eliminates unwanted feedback. Internal electronics let you simply plug in and play without external preamplification, and the Yamaha Silent Bass has dual piezo pickups (located under the bridge) to deliver optimum natural tone. Adjustable bridge and a pickup balance control let you tailor the feel and response to your individual needs. Yamaha built in headphone and line out jacks and an in jack for connecting CD or tape player to your Silent Bass.
