Yamaha's SRT technology really mkes this guitar stand out from the crowd. SRT stands for Studio Response Technology. What this means for the player is that you regain the resonance, tone and ambience that is lost with other piezo systems. SRT delivers a natural sounding, studio-quality sound that will make your recordings sound truly professional.
On the preamp you'll find the usual 3-stage equaliser and volume controls, as well as a tuner. Uniquely the SRT range of electro acoustic guitars feature three different microphone models; the Neumann U67, Neumann K56 and Royer R-122. You can select any one of these to match your playing style or requirements for live/studio settings. In addition you can also adjust the position of the modelled microphone - when switched to Focus, it will reproduce the sound of the mic being placed close to the strings, capturing the body resonance with a tight, crisp response. Switch it over to Wide and suddenly it's as if the mic has been moved back a few meters, creating a softer sound with more ambient sound, great for solo work.
If this wasn't enough, there's also a resonance control to adjust the level of body resonance that gets amplified. This is great for percussive guitarists that want to make the most of their instrument, or for players in a tight spot close to the speakers that need to control
