    Yamaha BB615Published on 12/04/08 at 01:40
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Low made in Korea (me it seems ...), beautiful construction, I've seen more expensive basses with a lower finish, the varnish is superb, the wood is very key class.
    It has 22 frets, Fender like an easel with an extension for the B is active, Vol-Bal-Tre-Mid-Low, the handle type is a 5 string Jazz Bass

    USE

    ULTRA is comfortable, it is easy to adjust, one obtains a work of incredible string, it does not frieze is responsive to the following finger where you attack the strings.
    The sound? sounds rather, it oscillates between a modernized Jazz Bass and Precision Bass modernized, too, is a little cold, a little clinical, but it's a mix, severe B works well too.

    SOUNDS

    I'm with the variety, I'm happy, it is not very heavy, it's pretty natural, I have 2-3 off effects (chorus slows for honey overdrive for rocks phones BassBall in some funky stuff), they pass well.
    I go in terms of sounds: from reggea to disco to rock to tango steps etc .... I do not have to plaidre me, this bass is happening everywhere.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I have a few months, of course I would buy, so much so that I think climbing range Yamaha (TRB perhaps), they are well built instruments, burly, versatile, beautiful .... what about more

    China under control Yamaha 34 "active
    1 Yamaha Alnico split and 1 bar ceramic micro Yamaha

    1 balance for 2 microphones

    UTILIZATION

    What is striking is the quality of the violin. Nickel. It begs the question of varnish round after years of good service.
    The handle is very nice and easy, the Yam.
    It stings slightly Zen, tend to play straight handle but it does not ask me bp.
    The bridge is a vile crap. This is the first thing that struck me, impossible to get a correct sound, cardboard and more rope B that blocks attacks on free, brief ... Soft strings on the first 4 and a tight 34 "(a story of missed marketing) B and rendering awful. I doubted t…

    The bridge is a vile crap. This is the first thing that struck me, impossible to get a correct sound, cardboard and more rope B that blocks attacks on free, brief ... Soft strings on the first 4 and a tight 34 "(a story of missed marketing) B and rendering awful. I doubted the bridge and preamp. So I found a bridge worthy of WD name in the U.S. (a kind of Gotho hard to find 48USD + shipping 18mm, excellent) I installed 34 "for all strings (and I got the correct voltage on the 5-string) and there I understood that the preamp there was nothing. How can we make such design error to win 50 €, the halu? I take a bunch of points but direct use with this mod is excellent.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds PB with aggressive mids / treble terrible on the split. 2 microphones is powerful and sharp aggressiveness split tjrs is there but there is more punch. On the bar alone, I do not use it.
    I use a GK MB Fusion and several different stacks depending (Mesa Powerhouse 210 and 115 or a 12 "Stellite excellent invoice). The bass is very versatile, very round (not as a passive course) that we want.'s preamp proves excellent craftsmanship, it is very efficient and quiet.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Few months, I play on MM Stingray V for gigs and I use that one for repeating for its pleasant weight. But I think I'll play gigs too.
    I love everything so much that I would let me try for a BB2025X, a little expensive. But Yamaha is still on fire.
    I used all standard models of the earth I am no longer young. I agree with MM, a jap ATK305 and BB615.
    The value for money as long as we want to change the bridge is no comparison (otherwise should be dropped). Except I do not know the mouth it has in 10 years.

    (Originally written by greini/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
    Bass guitar made in Korea (I guess...). Very nice manufacturing quality! I've seen more expensive instruments with worst finishes: the varnish looks great, the woods are very good.

    5-string active bass with a 22-fret neck, Fender-type bridge, volume, balance, treble, mid and bass controls and Jazz Bass-style neck.

    UTILIZATION

    Very good playability, easy to adjust, very low string action without fret noise. The instrument faithfully reproduces every nuance of your playing.

    How does it sound? The sound ranges from modern Jazz Bass to modern Precision Bass sounds. The sound is a bit cold and analytic but it can…

    How does it sound? The sound ranges from modern Jazz Bass to modern Precision Bass sounds. The sound is a bit cold and analytic but it can easily find its place in a mix. The low B string sounds alright.

    SOUNDS

    I play pop music with this it and I'm satisfied. The bass is light and has a nice natural look. I use a pair of effects (chorus for ballads, overdrive for rock songs, BassBall for funky tunes) and the outcome is also very good.

    The sound allows me to play anything from reggae to disco, rock, tango, etc. This bass guitar is very versatile.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've owned it for a few months and I would definitely buy it again. But I'm also thinking about buying a high-end Yamaha (a TRB maybe) because they are well-designed, sturdy, versatile, beautiful, etc.
