Yamaha started the BB series of bass guitars in the 80’s, borrowing maybe from some classical designs, but adding their own spice in electronics and playability. This series was stopped in the 90’s, but is now back thanks to popular demand. The good news is that some BB models (as in the old days) are really affordable working player’s basses.

This updated line-up includes active, passive, 4 & string models, as well as some signature models (Michael Anthony and Nathan East).

I admit that these basses have an added emotional bonus for me: I still keep and use my old Yamaha BB350F fretless bass, which turned out to be a real winner.

The BB615 is the active 5 string model in this series.

Controls are: Volume, Balance, 3 band EQ (Bass, Mid & Treble).

The tried and tested PJ pickups become really versatile through the active preamp. You can easily get a deep tone that is great for reggae and rock, but also good definition and crystal highs for modern techniques.

The bass is 34” scale, but the low B is 34,25”, just enough to give that string the right tension to obtain great definition an volume.
