Yamaha BB614 Pewter

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Christian Houmann, May 6, 2005.


  1. Have anyone tried the new Yamaha BB 400 - 600 series?

    I played a 614 aktive today and it just blowed me of. It was just a great bass and it's cheap. It was easy to play and it sounded good. I also played the passive one - a Orange Metallic. Also great and what a funky color! But the aktive one just had more bite. I think I will buy it tomorrow :smug:

    If you don't mind what is your price in Euros?
     
  3. In Germany it is 340 Euro for the 614 and 374 Euro for 615!
    In Denmark it is a bit more :meh:

    That comes out to $486 for the active five! That's a great price. I wouldn't mind getting the passive 5. it looks so much like the original Yamaha BB5000 except it has realistic string spacing. :bassist:
     
  5. I also played the the passive 5 Orange metallic - Great bass but the B string was not so tight. I think it has the string spacing like my Yamaha BB5000A

    Would the string spacing happen to be 3", or 3/4" from string to string, on the BB415?
