SRT2 Electronics

SRT2 is a new pickup system developed independently by Yamaha and optimized for stage performance. From a piezo sound that cuts through a mix to a warm, pure acoustic sound recorded using a vintage microphone in a recording studio, SRT2 allows you to mix sounds to attain the exact balance you want to achieve a distinctive tone.

SRT Pickup

The Yamaha proprietary SRT pickup design uses individual elements for each string, which provides an ultra-clear, ultra-wide bandwidth signal with superior dynamic response and tonal accuracy compared to a regular, ribbon-type piezo pickup.

AC5R Mic Types

  • Mic Type 1:
  • Neumann U67 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
  • Mic Type 2:
  • Royer R122 Active Ribbon Microphone



  • Volume Control
  • Treble Control
  • Bass Control/AFR (Auto Feedback Reduction) [PUSH]
  • Blend Control/Mic Type Switch [PUSH]


Powerful Acoustic Sound

A Series guitars are louder and stronger in the low-mid ranges thanks to cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology developed by the Yamaha R&D Division, which led to the addition of scalloped bracing for the top and shorter bracing than normal for the back. Also, to give the instrument a rich, vintage-quality tone, the tops are treated with the exclusive, Yamaha Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) process, making it sound as though the instrument has been played for years the first moment you pick it up.
