Yamaha BB735A 5-String Bass Guitar
The Yamaha BB735A 5-String Bass Guitar is the premium workhorse for the professional musician. The BB735A 5 string is equally at home both on the stage or in the studio thanks to it's versatile active electronics system, tough high quality construction and crisp, penetrating sound.
With the BB735A Bass Yamaha used decades of research to come up with a body design that uses a combination of Alder and Maple to form a multi-laminated construction. This technique allows the hard Maple center layer to not only increase body stiffness and accentuate midrange, but to improve the relationship between the body and the neck in terms of vibration transfer, increasing the natural resonance and sustain of the instrument.
One feature at the forefront of this innovative BB Series Bass Guitar is it's 5 piece neck. Using Maple and laminated Mahogany in the neck construction means that both ends of the sonic spectrum are adopted which creates a balanced yet penetrating overall contribution to the tone produced. Building the neck this way also means that the bass is much more resistant to any warping or twisting over time which should give many owners peace of mind.
Attached to the body via a 6 bolt Miter joint you the neck sits tighter to the body to provide a more efficient transfer of string vibrations, resulting in a further boost in sustain and resonance. Also improved upon from previous BB models is the neck radius with a thinner spec avalible as standard on this model in order to appeal to both the modern and traditional player alike while Rosewood remains the choice tonewood for the fingerboard.
The awesome tonal versatility and power of this high spec bass guitar orginates from it's YGD Custom V7 pickups. Any player who plugs in their 700 series will notice how organic and well defined each and every note is, song after song. The BB735 really is a class act and thanks to it's specially tuned active/passive circuit that gives players tonal control to fine tune their sound with extreme flexibility.
Other key appointments of this BB Series Broad Bass Guitar is it's Vintage plus bridge with 'Diagonal Body Thru Stringing' for reduced stress and efficient string vibration to the body, High performance lightweight open gear tuners for flawless tuning integrity and a handy battery Alert LED that indicates when power is low on the active circuit.
