SRT2 Electronics

SRT2 is a new pickup system developed independently by Yamaha, and optimized for stage performance. From a piezo sound that cut through when in a mix to a warm, pure acoustic sound that is like recorded by using the vintage microphone in the recording studio, SRT2 allows you to reproduce a sound that you can really use on stage. With SRT2 you can mix these two sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone

What’s more, the ability to select from two different mic types lets you choose the optimal sound for your playing style and for the song you are performing. (SRT2 is applied to the A5 and A3 only.)

A: Volume Control

B: Treble Control

C: Bass Control/AFR (Auto Feedback Reduction) [PUSH]

D: Blend Control/Mic Type Switch [PUSH]

Yamaha’s proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string to give an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with far better dynamic response and tonal accuracy than a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.

Powerful Acoustic Sound

A new sound has been developed for the A-series that is louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysA new sound has been developed for the A-series that is louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges, thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division. Their analysis led to the development of the new scalloped bracing for the top board and shorter bracing than normal for the back board.

Also, treating the tops with Yamaha’s exclusive A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you’d been playing it for years from the very first moment you pick an A-series guitar up. (A.R.E. processing is applied to the A5 and A3 only.)

New Bracing

Overall increases across the lower range. Richer harmonic overtones in the mid range.

Conventional Bracing

High Comfort Neck Profile

Extensive research with players, luthiers and guitar techs has given A-Series the feel and playability that today’s acoustic-electric players want, whether switching from electric to acoustic on-stage, recording a session with intricate open tunings, or practicing at home. These superb guitars feature a straighter neck taper for easier high-fret playing, and hand-rolled fingerboard edges to achieve a played-in feel.

 

Simple and Distinctive Looks

The simple, organic design features wood binding and other techniques that capture the warmth of wood. The distinctive shape of the pick guard, which stands out when performing, is a revival of the N1000 guitar that Yamaha released in 1975.

Elixir Strings

A-series guitars are equipped with Elixir NANOWEB 80/20 Bronze Light strings to deliver a lively tone together with extended tone life that players have come to expect from Elixir Strings.
