The silent bouzouki Pro II has arrived in Tokyo about a week ago. It was carefully packed, and I was able to track where the package was at all times. The instrument is excellent! Even without the pickup, there is enough resonance if practicing alone. The pickup on the instrument is also great. Sounds very natural, and projects very, very well. Everything was beyond my expectation. Thank you!

I got a very good instrument that I fell in love with. Due to the missing Sound Body, I can practice at any time without disturbing my neighbours. I think it` s an Ideal solution. The Bouzouki also sounds great on an amplifier and is indistinguishable from a traditional one with a Sound Body. I would like to thank Aleksios and his Team for this great Bouzouki!

I recently ordered a Silent bouzouki from this manufacturer via email. I was pleased with the final product. It was made to the exact specifications as per our discussions. I found Alexi and his team thorough professional and his level of craftsmanship astounding.

Since 12/5/2005, our workshop holds the Patent for quite an innovative musical instrument: the so-called “silent” bouzouki. This patent (no. 1004879) refers to a musical instrument that was born out of the maker’s personal need to play the bouzouki at whatever time of the day, at a building apartment, without disturbing his neighbors.

It constitutes a one-of-a-kind innovation since it offers all the characteristics of the respective acoustic instrument as to the «feeling» a musician gets. It is played in exactly the same way, the only difference being that it doesn’t produce the same sound volume due to the lack of back, which has been replaced by a plastic bridge so as to maintain the feeling of weight, support and operability.

advantages over an acoustic instrument

  • One may study or play music for recreational purposes without disturbing those around him/her.
  • It offers the sense of electronic sound through the use of an original pickup and an electronic preamplifier system, requiring no additional equipment.
  • There are no distortions and buzzes at high volumes. It’s ideal for large professional halls and studio recordings.
  • It’s by nature more easy to play compared to an acoustic instrument.


There are two 2 basic ‘silent’ categories, PRO I and PRO II.

PRO Ιare characteristically designed with holes in the back, while PRO II have a cover and look like acoustic instruments on the front. The have a slight sound difference especially when played without an amplifier.

PRO II have a slightly higher sound intensity due to the fact that the back is full, instead of having holes. Their electric parts are identical (pickup and preamplifier) and have no significant difference when used in amplifier-console.
