For Sale - Yamaha BB2025X
I hear ya... The BBs never cease to impress me. I suspect my next acquisition will likely be a BB735 or a BB435. That is unless I come into some money unexpectedly, then I will finally get an Attitude III.
For Sale/Trade - Yamaha BB1025X - Caramel...BEAUTIFUL!!!
Good review of the BB735. I found the same opinion after getting me bass. Yamaha BB735A Bass Guitar | Bass Gear Magazine
any cheap bass hard cases around Adelaide?
My '78 BB800 will forever by my side.
Thats basically a fender isn't it? it's got the fender style body and head stock. that's weird
Body is way different than Fender. It's bigger, but skinnier. The neck is also a flatter than a P, but it's more similar to Fender than the body.
Another BB with no model on the headstock
sorry it looks so alike though
I love my BB434.
Here is my 97 yammy bbg4. By far the best bass I've had to date.
So I got the BB735 and am not sure how I feel about it just yet.
Build quality seems great and upper fret access is better than my BB425. Fretboard is pretty flat, which is ok but an adjustment. I think a setup will help me feel more comfortable. The matte paint on the back of the neck is also an adjustment.
It sounds very different than the 425, which I wanted. Like the 425, it has a lot of output and a weighty, full tone. P is much closer to a Fender P than the one on my BB425, which I was hoping for (for variety, and so I don’t have to buy a Fender.)
The J is also more Fenderish, which I like far less than the J on the 425.
I like the blend knob! It does give usable options beyond the 425’s 3-way switch.
Overall less fatness than the 425, but more bite and clarity.
I’m on the fence about the preamp—the treble seems brittle, but that’s my impression playing alone. The real test will be band rehearsal.
Will report back after I’ve played it with the band.
Wow lotsa yammalovers out there. Good to see. I had to contact Yamaha to find out info about my bbg4 there is very little about these basses just photos they seem to look similar to the BB404 bodywise. I won't be parting with this anytime soon even for a fender lol. I'd like to get it to to johnny lee long over at the hobo depot to clean it up hobo style.
great work, that looks sweet. When you sanded the top was the origional finish a photo flame? Nice work pro job
Looking forward to your thoughts about live use...
I have two BB734a. One is dark coffee sunburst and the other is translucent black matte. The black one has more of a resonant deep bass sound than the sunburst. And the sunburst has more treble and is brighter with a more articulated sound.
They're visually similar, but feel a lot different in your hands. The BB body is taller and thinner than a Fender P and the neck profile is different. Tonally they're also pretty different.
yeah my bb200 with a br170y neck swap is quite thin compared to my squire p-bass fender the bb has a medium tone while my fender has a deep tone.
