I've not been shy about publicly pining for a Fodera Yin Yang Standard for quite some time now. I had read mostly good things and heard some great demos, but couldn't find one to try in StL. @bassbuddha had one in the classifieds, and there it sat, calling to me. But the pandemic had severely cut into the disposable income, so I bumped it a month ago with a post wishing that 2020 wasn't such a tight year. Fast forward to the end of the year, and it turns out that we had overtightened our belts during the worst of it, so we had a little make-up bonus at the end of the year. I knew JUST what to do with mine! This bass plays like a dream! @bassbuddha kindly put fresh Fodera ultralight rounds on it. The action is really low and there is NO fret buzz. I usually play flats with slightly higher action, but I'm not changing anything for now. It plays so nicely as is. I am really digging the preamp. I've played it for a good hour and I am thrilled with the playability and tonal palette. I've run through some Al Di Meola, Santana, STP, Police, Marley, and Steely Dan and found good tones for them all. I had the WD-800 set flat and just played with different techniques and settings. Pick, fingers, it responds to techniques beautifully. Harmonics SING on this thing! Slim, fast neck, just the way I like. Slides are easy despite the rounds. Josie was never funkier in my hands! (Although no doubt considerably funkier in Chuck's!) Truly a dream come true! I couldn't be happier with this bass!
