Great Bang for the Buck!

25.06.2014
That translucent finish is so good, the feeling is smooth and warm and I really like the fact that you can see the wood inside. The black finish I have in the sunlight looks brown and I really like that! The fret edges could be a bit better. Not such a problem but you could catch your fluffy shirt sleeve. B is excellent with no buzz and it generally plays like a charm. The inlays must be mother of pearl or something they look great! Hardware and electronics work fine and look high quality. 4 star quality only for the frets.

Black Beauty!

Funbasser, 22.07.2016
A great bass, with a very good playability!

To mention it first, playability, sound, equipment and processing of the bass, are simply great!

I am amazed at how much Yamaha bass is delivered for the price.

The workmanship is impeccable, everything fits - Note 1
The sound is good and is more of a jazz bass. On top of that there is a typical humbucker pickup. He does not imitate a Stingray. From the sound, it is close to the Ibanez SR 505, clear - they resemble the wood and the pickup. The H string of the Yamaha is a bit wobbly, but it is still very audible and clearly involved in the sound. Somehow, this sound impression changes over the time to the positive. Friends of the reggae get their money on the bass. Sound note 1.5

The equipment of the bass is joy, everything Yamaha has installed, is very high-quality and functional. - Note 1

Sound control - the sound control is unusually strongly involved in the sound. I've been accustomed to the fact that I've always gotten clear with neutral settings. With the Yamaha I have to adjust my sound already. What initially appears to be a deficiency is, on closer inspection, a strength, because that makes the bass a universal machine.
The active / passive circuit is very useful and good! There is a very clear difference in the sound whether it was activated or not. It is good to use the bass also passively. A 9 volt battery was not included, a pity! Nevertheless - note 1 for the sound control.

The playability of the bass is very good, it fits for me ergonomically. The bass is light, so it is also suitable for long live sessions. The strings are quite low. The neck and the strings are very nice to play. All in all, it gives an easy and fast feeling - note 1

The finish - simply great, the matt black bass looks simply noble and high-quality. Looking at the part is fun! - Note 1

I do not think it is possible to get even more bass for less money?

I had the Yamaha for two years in view, but could not penetrate him to buy.
This happened only now and I have to say, the part is good!

Conclusion:
The Yamaha is a beautiful universal machine. The part is unbeatable for the requested price.

Supplement:
After prolonged use under different conditions and impressions, I find the Yamaha still great! The bass sounds just good and it is very easy to play. The weight is pleasant.
Whether he is shaking with classics like Stingray 5 or Sandberg, I do not know? I still have a Stingray, which I only use, if I want exactly the stingray sound, otherwise I am enough to the Yamaha. Straightforward Oprtik tells me very much. The Yamaha makes on understatement and becomes an animal when the thumbs the H and E string!
