Yamaha SLB300 Silent Bass

Add to Wish List
The SLB300 is a brand-new type of electric upright bass that achieves natural sound and resonance by using the SRT POWERED system to simulate studio-quality sound in which the body resonance of a double bass was recorded using a high-quality microphone, all the while keeping a semi-solid body structure that emphasizes quietness and portability.

The SLB300 comes with an optimized pickup system and preamplifier already installed, and can be directly connected to a wide range of equipment without further setup or adjustment.

Find Your Sound with Three Microphone Types, EQ, and Blend Control
The SRT Powered System is used to simulate the response of three well-known and prized studio microphones. The microphones can be selected via the MIC TYPE selector, and the sound adjusted via the BLEND and BASS/TREBLE controls to ideally match a wide range of musical genres, ensembles, performance locations, and more.

Three Microphone Types
• Rich: A highly valued vintage tube microphone that delivers smooth, well-balanced sound.
• Simple: A dynamic microphone that is often used for its clear, well-defined sound.
• Warm: With a different tube microphone character than number 1, this classic microphone is known for a more emphasized low range and overall warmth.

Blend Control
The BLEND control adjusts the mix between the simulated microphone signal and the signal from the instruments pickup. The blend can be seamlessly adjusted from direct pickup output with no microphone simulation to full microphone simulation when maximum depth and harmonic richness are desired.

• Body Designed for Pure Acoustic Tone
• SRT Powered System adds realistic body resonance
• Designed to require no change from standard acoustic bass technique
• Antique style finish with consistent frame and body color for a natural wood feel
• Includes soft case for easy transportation
