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.
