The BB bass has long been the bass of choice for some of the world’s best know players including Nathan East, Michael Anthony, Marco Mendoza, Glenn Hughes, Geezer Butler and Duff McKagan, the Yamaha BB is known for incredible sound, great playability and classic, vintage inspired looks. When the Super-BB launched in 2009 the bar was raised, with Yamaha launching a bass designed for today’s pro rock players - a no compromise passive, bolt-on bass designed to meet the needs of the most demanding rock bass players on the planet. For 2010, Yamaha is launching a new range of BB basses boasting exclusive features developed for the Super-BB, making the ultimate passive rock bass accessible to every bassist.
