Lovely amp mate, 200 watts @ 8 ohms or 350 watts @ 4 ohms. I've enjoyed gigging with it :-)


It used to be a combo, looking at the badge :D I'm doing research lol

I quite like Yamaha basses. If I hadn't lost all interest in electrics, I'd get one. I used to own a BBG4 with active pups and the quilt top.

I had been tyre kicking it for a few weeks at a music shop and one day I went in and there was this Cool Kid with his rich dad and the Cool Kid was having a bit of a go and shaking his head in a "no" motion. Wimpy fucking player. He put it down with a bit of a sneer and he and his rich dad moved on to look at another bass. That dismissiveness gave me the shits in no uncertain manner. After all, that was the bass I was always too afraid to buy. It was a love that dared not pull out its credit card.

Anyway, while they were faffing around, I asked the sales guy if I could have a go at the BBG4 and played something like Leo Kottke doing Vaseline Machine Gun. I finished and Cool Kid and parent were looking quite stunned. I channeled Ray Charles in The Blues Brothers and said to the sales guy "I don't think there's anything wrong with this bass, I'll take it!"

I still feel like a bit of a bully for having behaved that way, after all, it's none of my business what people think of gear. But it was a fucking nice bass and I got many years of enjoyment out of it. If I was still into electrics, I would haunt eBay until I found one. Yamaha makes very nice things.
