Yamaha BB435 Broad Bass

Featuring a six-bolt miter neck joint, the BB400 series continues the legacy of superb sound and playability of the renowned BB series from Yamaha. .

  • Solid Alder Body
  • 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint
  • 5-piece Neck
  • YGD Custom V5 Pickups (AlnicoV)
  • Vintage Plus Light Bridge : Convertible Bridge and Saddle
  • Lightweight Open Gear Tuners

Neck Connection: Miter bolting holds the neck closer and tighter to the body fusing these two separate components into one. Compared to a conventional bolt-on joint, miter bolting offers more efficient transfer of string vibration throughout the body, for improved sustain and outstanding resonance that brings every note to life.

Pickups: Alnico magnet pickups tuned to deliver the classic BB vintage tone, slightly updated to provide a brighter sound that cuts through in live performance situations.

Bridge: Equipped with a Vintage Plus Light bridge that incorporates “Diagonal Body Thru Stringing,” in which the strings are angled at the saddle and pass through the instrument to the bridge at a 45º angle, as opposed to the traditional vertical stringing method which places more stress on the strings. Diagonal Body Thru Stringing significantly reduces this stress while transferring string vibration to the body reliably and efficiently. The strings can also be attached to the tail end of the bridge. The 5-string bridge is equipped with an offset low B string for better intonation.

Five Piece Neck: The new series features a 5-ply maple and mahogany laminated neck, in a bolt-on design that delivers a sharp attack, and quick response. This durable construction resists warping and twisting and adds the tight, penetrating character of maple combined with the warmth of mahogany to the instrument’s tone.

Ligt Weight Tuners: Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
