    SONORITS

    I play all styles and this bass is astounding versatility
    it has more grit her pretty and very present, a strong personality due to the excellent yamaha high impedance microphones and instrument making treats (his rather round, wood, ax lower medium, medium sweet and sharp little )dropoff window
    I play on a Markbass 121 and also a modified Roland DB500
    She can spend big sound reggae funk sound of a phone switch, it is also a sound approach pastoriusesque eg for a solo and the bass is nice grain
    it has a particular sound very full slap
    if my Parker Fly is a Formula 1, this bass is a big Mercedes in his plush

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I have had the opportunity to, I was looking for some time, knowing the reputation of this bass is version a little less luxury BB Nathan East (BBNE)
    For DIYers, the preamp being the weak point that it is at the very best, we can change the 4 TL062 op amp's preamp for TLE2022 and above all capas tantalum by quality of electrolytic, change of guaranteed more dynamic and even more elegant stamp ...

    qualitprix good opportunity report, a remarkable instrument with a versatile sound and strong personality

    - Low 5 japanese strings (for wood, see manufacturer)
    - Handle type yamaha 24 frets, 2 active pickups
    - 5 pots settings:
    1 volume
    A micro scale
    A serious
    A 3-position midrange
    An acute
    - Nice finish, mine is a beautiful emerald green translucent (wood designs visible), the sunburst of the above photo does not look bad either.

    UTILIZATION

    - Handle very pleasant. I played on a Fender Jazz Bass Mexico to begin with, I much prefer the comfort of playing the BB-N5A, even with a rope and more.
    - Access to acute is easy, except perhaps for the last two cases (but hey you do not spend his life on the 24th case, as a guitar).
    - Hollow on the back avoiding to ruin the c…

    - Access to acute is easy, except perhaps for the last two cases (but hey you do not spend his life on the 24th case, as a guitar).
    - Hollow on the back avoiding to ruin the coast ach time we play up. It is a bit heavy but well balanced, play live is learning to sit up straight.
    - The active pickups decked out in all settings allow both to play a percussive funk reggae a much heavier (very versatile).

    SOUNDS

    As I said before, the many settings provide absolute versatility. The 3 position knob mediums allows for example to go (to use the same examples above) to move from funk to reggae on the same piece just by shifting the knob a notch.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - Before this, I played a Fender Jazz Bass, an Ibanez Ergodyne. I use it for 4 years now and I intend to finish my life with.
    - And +:
    the look
    the sonic possibilities virtually unlimited
    the -:
    weight
    - When I bought it, I never thought to put 830 euros in a low (I was a student!). My teacher sold it, so I could take the time to try it before I decided, but I am quickly falling in love. I have no regrets, on the contrary, I'm glad I ventured out my money.
