OVERVIEW

The introductory model of the hardest working bass in the business: the Yamaha BB series.

The latest in Yamaha's storied BB series of bass guitars delivers the superb sound and build quality that this series is known for in a smaller body with even better playability. Featuring a Alder/Maple/Alder construction for quicker transmission of sound from the strings to the body and neck, a firmer 6-bolt miter neck joint for improved stability, and custom-wound pickups that achieve higher output gain while retaining the classic BB voicing, the new lineup of BB basses are a testament to our commitment to musical excellence.

The Legacy Continues
In the BB Series, Yamaha has always sought to offer bassists nothing less than a pure bass guitar. Forgoing passing technical fads in favor in proven technologies and production techniques, every model in the BB Series has been a product of our commitment to creating a bass that allows you to build your own sound rather than defining one for you. These latest models continue this tradition of reliable excellence in superbly crafted bass guitars that you can depend on to give you the sound you need, in any situation you throw at it.

BB200 Series
So you've decided that the bass is the instrument for you. You're putting in the countless hours of practice, building your repertoire, and jamming with friends to tighten up your set in preparation for your onstage debut. The best-in-class durability, sound, and playability of the 200 lineup makes it the ideal instrument to help you take that crucial first step down the road to being a serious musician.
