JAM Duo are constantly looking at ways to improve their offering for both our wedding and corporate clients. New for 2022 is our fabulous Yamaha Electric Cello.

When we originally set up JAM Duo it was with a beautiful traditional cello with piano accompaniment. We have always carried our Yamaha Digital piano simply for portability purposes although where possible we will perform with an acoustic piano (upright or grand) if available at the venue.

There is very little to rival the sound of an acoustic cello with its lovely sonorous and romantic tones. This is partly why it is absolutely ideal for your wedding day or stylish corporate event / party. The cello has a similar range to the human voice and can play pretty much anything!

Why the Electric Cello?

JAM Duo are playing for an increasing number of larger scale corporate events and weddings with 100 or more guests. In such situations the acoustic cello and our digital piano with onboard speakers is not always enough.

We also play outside a lot at weddings which aside of the other complications this brings means the sound can disappear very quickly.

With this in mind, as well as wanting to play for more evening events with a more upbeat vibe, we took the decision at the end of 2021 to invest in a Yamaha Electric Cello. We wanted something which would have the same beautiful sound as our traditional cello but which could be amplified to work in larger spaces and outdoors without compromising on the quality of sound.

Having done much research we decided the only viable option was essentially the best instrument on the market. There is a reason why any professional cellist who has embarked into this area goes with the Yamaha Cello. We tried a number of alternatives and, in some cases, they were almost unplayable!

We settled on the Yamaha SVP110 as it retains the traditional outline shape of the cello which we felt was important. Most important of all however was the tone of the instrument. The sound of our duo and indeed the sound of the cello is a key part of our ‘product offering’ to brides who want something special at their wedding.

As we take on more events with our electric cello we will publish more pictures both on our website and on our instagram and facebook pages.

So far the electric cello is proving very popular and sounding absolutely great. Below is a playlist with some tracks we have recorded using the electric cello.

Creating a chilled yet upbeat vibe, our electric cello is ideal for drinks receptions in larger or outdoor spaces. For wedding day time music we use subtle amplification and small speakers to replicate the sound of our acoustic cello but ensuring the music can be heard even amongst lots of background and ambient noises.

About the Electric Cello

Yamaha designers worked together with some of the world’s greatest cellists to create the SVC-110 and SVC-210. The talent of these artists is reflected in the electric cellos beautiful warm tone and comfortable playability. The SVC-110 plays and sounds so similar to a fine acoustic cello.

Electric Cello at Your Wedding

Depending on the venue and of course our client’s requirements, we can technically use the electric cello for all parts of your wedding day. However, we do tend to reserve it for the Drinks Reception onwards. Typically most brides like the look and sound of our beautiful acoustic cello for their wedding ceremony.

Electric Cello at the Drinks Reception and Meal

Depending on the number of people at your wedding, a drinks reception and indeed the evening meal will often involve lots of chatter and background noise. Our job as wedding musicians is to provide a beautiful musical backdrop to the occasion.

Whilst we can mic up our acoustic cello, the electric cello has the same sonorous tone and sounds just as romantic even through our small PA system. For music during the day time we do not bring out our big PA system. This is all about subtle amplification. All we are trying to do is produce the same classic sound of cello and piano but just a little louder to ensure your guests can heard the music as they chat without anything becoming over bearing.

Electric Cello and Piano in the Evening

After the wedding breakfast is where the electric cello and piano really come into their own. Using our larger PA system we can create a party atmosphere whilst your evening guests arrive.

Whilst we have sometimes performed for the whole evening, our Electric set is designed to take you up to your First Dance, after which we step aside for the DJ.

First Dance with Electric Cello and Piano

Your First Dance is one of the most romantic parts of your wedding day. JAM Duo can make this an even more special and memorable moment by arranging your favourite song for cello and piano.

Performed on our beautiful electric cello and digital piano this will create the perfect vibe and introduction to the evening part of your wedding day. Enjoy your first dance together as husband and wife whilst JAM Duo provide beautiful music.
