Solid Alder Body

The BB 434’s body is crafted from lightweight alder to produce a smooth, deep bass tone with a beefy midrange and a slightly sizzling high end. Its strong, full-bodied sound works well when paired with the brightness of the maple, adding plenty of depth and dynamics to the overall tone.

5-Piece Maple/Mahogany Neck

The maple/mahogany combination delivers incredible stability, while offering the best of both tonewoods for a bright, mellow sound. The neck is designed with an incredibly thin profile, improving its playability and feel to suit modern and traditional players. Coupled with a rosewood fingerboard, the 3 woods provide the bass with a complex high end and a smooth playing experience. The set of lightweight tuners provide better balance than standard tuners, complementing the overall feel of the bass while its open-gear design adds to the Yamaha’s aesthetics.

6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint

The Yamaha’s neck is attached to the body with a 6-bolt miter neck joint, offering a more efficient transfer of string vibration thought the body than conventional bolt-on joints. The miter joint holds the neck closer to the body to provide a tighter hold and improving sustain and resonance, allowing the bass to bring life to every note.

Custom V5 Pickups

The Yamaha BB 434 is equipped with a set of powerful custom V5 pickups, with a split single-coil at the neck and a bar single-coil at the bridge. This configuration is perfect for players who enjoy playing a wide range of musical styles, offering the best of split and bar pickup tones. The custom V5 pickups deliver the vintage BB sound, providing players with a classic, well-balanced tone and an excellent articulation. The pickups have been slightly updated to produce a brighter sound, allowing the bass to cut through the mix during performances. A single tone control and 2 volume controls provide versatile tone shaping, allowing players to dial in the perfect sound for their playing.

Vintage Plus Light Bridge

The bass’ vintage plus light bridge enhances the overall sustain and resonance of the strings by incorporation a unique ‘diagonal body through stringing’. This is achieved by angling the strings at the saddle to pass through the body at a 45-degree angle, placing less stress on the strings as opposed to the more traditional vertical stringing. This method allows the bridge to transfer the string vibrations to the body reliably and efficiently. The vintage plus bridge also allows the strings to be attached to the tail end.
