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 is the 1025X model, just bellow the flagship BB2025X, sharing many of the features of that bass but with a more affordable price tag. This bass proves that a good passive bass will go a long way and will have you covered for just any style of music with a beefy direct signal. The neck pickup sounds warm and big, and the bridge pickup has a nice bite to it. Blend both and you get a very useable all round sound. Excellent quality and attention to detail as you would expect from Yamaha. Excellent low B too.
