Yamaha Broad Bass BB434

Yamaha Broad Bass BB434


What truly sets Yamaha's BB basses apart from other basses are their comfortable and familiar contours. Carefully crafted from balanced-sounding alder, the BB434 4-string boasts that same identifiable character. Its rounded edges and forearm and belly cuts seem to melt into your body while playing. The bass's 5-piece maple and mahogany bolt-on neck sings with a new level of punch and sustain, thanks to its 6-bolt miter design. And its slightly thinner profile is a welcome addition to a more modern style of players.

Whether you're a session player or a specialist, you know the benefits of a P/J pickup combination. The pickups in this BB434 4-string are Yamaha's present-sounding YGD Custom V5 Alnico V single-coil design. Dial in more of the neck pickup for that all-important P-style growl. And nail punchy fingerstyle tones with the bridge pickup — a favorite for many Sweetwater bassists. The BB434's passive volume/volume/tone control layout couldn't be easier to dial in.
