Are you a professional bass player, looking at purchasing a high-performance 5-string bass, with awesome voicing options and superb looks? Then you've come to the right place!

A Sleek And Stylish 5-String Bass

With the Yamaha BB435, seen here with a classic Tobacco Brown Sunburst finish, you get a modern, high-performance, 5-string take on the incredibly popular Yamaha BB (BroadBass) instruments of the late '70s/early '80s.

Featuring a dual-cutaway solid Alder body, slim-profiled 5-piece neck, super-secure 6-bolt Miter neck joint, and versatile pickup options, this is a bass for players serious about kickstarting their playing career.

Yamaha BB435 5-String Bass, Tobacco Brown Sunburst Highlights

  • A modern, 5-string take on a classic '70s/'80s Yamaha bass
  • Solid Alder body with a dual-cutaway shape for easy upper-fret access
  • Sleek, 5-piece Maple and Mahogany neck, with a 6-bolt Miter joint for extra reliability
  • Two YGD Custom V5 Pickups with Alnico V magnets, in a PJ configuration (Split Coil and Single Coil)
  • Vintage Plus Light Bridge and Lightweight Open Gear Tuners make for a finely-balanced instrument
  • Perfect for aspiring professionals and more experienced players alike

Premium-Quality Construction

In addition to the lightweight and resonant Solid Alder body, this awesome bass features a 5-piece Maple/Mahogany neck with a new, slightly thinner shape than the original BroadBass was equipped with.

Not only that, but the neck sports a 6-bolt Miter joint, which holds it closer and tighter to the body than a standard bolt-on joint would.

The end result is a superb bass that features the kind of playability, reliability, and natural tone than modern bass players crave.

Top-Notch Hardware

For the 400-series models, Yamaha BB basses are equipped with a Vintage Plus Light bridge which features "Diagonal Body Thru Stringing".

This particular stringing method reduces string stress, whilst actively increasing string vibration transferrence, for more reliability and efficiency.

In addition to this, the saddle for the Low-B on this 5-string bass is offset, ensuring there's no compromise to its intonation.

Versatile And Powerful Pickups

Finally, the voice on this awesome 5-string bass is courtesy of a powerful set of Custom V5 pickups - a Split Coil at the Middle position, and a Single Coil at the Bridge, both of which feature Alnico V magnets.

This particular configuration is ideal for the modern player who demands a combination of power and articulation, and likes to play through a wide range of different musical genres.

Not only that, but thanks to the two Volume and single master Tone controls, you can dial in your perfect voice that will help you cut through any mix with ease.
