Toller 5 Saiter im Preci Look
Andy_11, 08.05.2019
Auf der Suche nach einem 2. Bass für die Bühne bin ich auf den Yamaha BB235 gestoßen. Bei der ersten Bestellung hatte eine der Stimmmechaniken leichtes Spiel was bei Schwingung der Saiten zu unangenehmen Geräuschen führte. Bass wurde von Thomann anstandlos ausgetauscht. Wie immer Top Service von Thomann nur mal nebenbei.

Verarbeitung:
Die Verarbeitung ist meines Erachtens absolut hochwertig. Von der schwarz lackierten Kopfplatte, übers Griffbrett mit Dot Inlays bis zum hochglanz weiß lackiertem Body mit schwarzem Schlagbrett. Der Hals ist schön dick (Preci like) und der Bass liegt super in der Hand. Es fühlt sich zu keiner Zeit so an als hätte man "NUR" einen 350,- Euro Bass in der Hand.

Der Bass ist beim Spielen im Stehen nicht kopflastig (ich verwende einen der 10cm breiten Minotaur Bass Stripes aus Leder). Mein Exemplar bringt genau 4,52 kg auf die Waage, was ich für einen 5 Saiter noch Ok finde. Die Saitenlage war für mich ab Werk viel zu niedrig eingestellt. Ist aber kein Problem, Schraube für den Halsspannstab befindet sich am unteren Ende des Griffbretts und ist leich zugänglich.

Sound:
Vom Sound bin ich absolut begeistert. Kommt sehr nahe an den klassischen Preci Sound ran. Mit dem Plek schöne knackige Mitten, mit den Fingern ordentliches Bassfundament. Der Singelcoil alleine ist für meinen Geschmack etwas zu schwach aber im Zusammenspiel mit dem Split-Coil fällt das kaum auf.

Fazit:
+ Tolle Verarbeitung
+ Schöne Vintage Optik
+ Guter, durchsetzungsfähiger Sound

- für diesen Preis kann ich absolut nichts negatives erkennen

bang for the bug
Laklander, 14.06.2020
Selten bis gar nicht war ich vom Start weg so von einem Instrument begeistert wie bei diesem YAMAHA BASS.
Mein Haushalt hat schon Marleaux, Lakland, Peavey, Fender, Squier, Ibanez gesehen.
Optisch wie preislich als "Zweitbass" hat mich der BB235 VW sehr gereizt und somit darf er auch bleiben...

Buen bajo calidad-precio
ppnoguera, 13.01.2020
Buena construcción, sonido versátil a la vez que clásico,mástil cómodo y rápido,diapasón muy bueno.
Aguanta perfectamente la afinación y es totalmente ajustable tanto el alma como la acción muy baja y el quintado.
Calidad en los detalles y peso aceptable.
Lo recomiendo en todos los aspectos.
