- 5-piece Neck to a Sustained Premium Sound

Constructed to Shine
The BB434BL has been constructed to deliver a tone like nothing you've heard before. With a dense solid Alder body, you're given a chunky articulation on your low end and mids, making you become the driving force of any performance or rehearsal.
With a fairly lightweight construction, the BB434 is ideal for playing for long periods. The Alder's equally balanced resonance articulates every attribute of your performance without being overwhelming.
Cutting and Articulate
Designed to provide a sonic resonance that will shine in any mix, the BB434BL comes with YDG Custom V5 Pickups. Finely tuned to offer a vibrant vintage flavour, the Alnico Magnets inside the pickups provide a somewhat brighter tone. Ideal for the latter-day player who likes to experiment with different styles!
If you're looking for a bass that gives you the option to refine your tone, this four-string has you covered. Presented with two volume knobs and a master tone control, craft your sound to suit any style or genre with ease.
Built to Last
To ensure that you are given definitive robustness that day-to-day players need, the Yamaha BB434BL comes with a 5-ply Maple and Mahogany blended neck. Giving a crispy and meticulous response to whatever you're playing, with a premium and comfortable feel for the playing hand.
Avoid warping over time and maintain a stellar sound that stuns with the bass' tough neck profile!
