YAMAHA BB734A 4 STRING BASS GUITAR
This Yamaha BB734A features a unique Alder/Maple/Alder multi-laminated body construction. The new BB lineup has undergone a significant redesign with subtle contour changes and body weight reduction made out of consideration to playability and comfort, while still retaining the classic silhouette of the BB body/ head design. The differences are subtle, but you’ll definitely feel them. The new models also feature standard sized pickups for the first time in a BB, for more convenient customization or replacement. The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players. Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
6-bolt Miter Neck Joint, Custom Pickups, 3-Band Active EQ, Vintage Plus Bridge with Convertible Saddles, Five-piece Neck
The BB 734A is from the 700 series which features a specially tuned active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and extreme flexibility. A 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life.
Alnico magnets produce a fat yet penetrating tone that works in combination with the unique Alder/Maple/Alder construction of the 700 and Pro models for an organic, well-defined sound. The two pickups and 3 band EQ offer up a huge range of tones making the BB734A suitable for any style of music. The specially tuned active/passive circuit has been retuned for the BB for a crisper tone and improved mids via a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode and tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. High-quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability and a battery alert LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of low power to eliminate sudden power loss during performance.
The 700 models are equipped with a Vintage Plus Bridge that incorporates “Diagonal Body Thru Stringing”. This brilliant new design feature means the strings pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45º angle, as opposed to the traditional vertical stringing method which places more stress on the strings. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing significantly reduces this stress while transferring string vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The strings can also be attached to the tail end of the bridge which comes equipped with a convertible saddle that can be adjusted to 2 different angles for more precise tonal shaping and feel. The rounder side of the saddle gives a slightly softer sound, while the more angled area produces a slightly tighter one. The brass saddle of the Vintage Plus Bridge delivers a slightly deeper low-end, and the steel bridge plate offers a brighter tone. All screws and springs are made of stainless steel to guard against corrosion.
The new series features a trans black satin stained 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design that delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and adds the tight, penetrating character of maple combined with the warmth of mahogany to the instrument’s tone. The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players. Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
The Yamaha BB734A is an outstanding professional instrument that is ready for the stage or studio and comes complete with gig bag.
