1 Yamaha Alnico split and 1 bar ceramic micro Yamaha
Bass preamp and midrange
1 balance for 2 microphones
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 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 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.
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.
