    A Long Time Coming... NECD! (56k=Pachelbel's Canon)

    Ladies and Gents, I present...

    My new Yamaha SVC-50 Silent Electric Cello!

    -Maple neck
    -Alder body
    -Removable poplar and aluminum leg rests
    -Removable chest rest
    -Ebony Fingerboard (looks much better after a few days of oiling)
    -Switchable Reverb (3 types)
    -1/4" Headphone and Line Out Jacks
    -1/8" Aux In jack
    -Real Tuning Machines (none of this ebony friction peg nonsense!)
    -Yamaha Silent Cello resonance cavity/pickup system

    I've wanted one of these for pretty much the past eight years, as I've experimented with all sorts of ways to amplify my acoustic cello, wrestling with feedback, various pickup systems, mics, and all sorts of other nightmares.

    Having sold my Intrepid and a fair bit of other extraneous gear, I was finally able to find one of these on eBay and jump on it for a great price.

    It came with an improperly cut bridge, but the seller sent me a Yamaha factory replacement, and I installed it today. This thing sounds pretty damn good! It's loud, clear, and very cello-like, but with good modern 'cut' and none of the high-end harshness I found in previous systems I tried. And, even better - no feedback issues to speak of, even with my bass amp at gigging volume right in front of it!

    It also sounds great with a bit of RAT-boosted distortion, or the 'grind' channel on my LD300 for some Apocalyptica. I'll be putting it through its real paces at band practice tonight, and will have a true verdict then. Time to work off all of the "I haven't played cello in 8 months" rust!

    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    This is good though, as I have some major motivation to get playing again, which I haven't had for a few years before tendonitis sidelined me for eight months.

    Time to break out the old "Six Suites" and dick around with a distortion pedal and some chorus!

    Don't you need a pilot's liscence to fly one of those?
