Yamaha BB Basses
With two new additions to its venerable BBline
(stands for “Broad Bass”—who knew?),
Yamaha is continuing to capitilize on a good
thing. The new BB2024X and BB2025X (pictured)
bring Yamaha’s Acoustic Resonance
Enhancement, designed to give new instruments
vintage tone, to the BB line.
Those looking for a sub-$100
powered pedalboard finally
have a good option from SKB.
It even includes a heavy-duty
ballistic nylon carry bag.
Manson John Paul Jones
Modeled after the legendary Led Zeppelin bass
man’s go-to bass for the past 16 years, the John
Paul Jones Signature features a figured maple top,
ebony fingerboard, EMG pickups, Hipshot D-Tuner,
and Badass Bridge. Dancing days are here again!
A killer-looking new all-tube head
with 70 watts and two separate
preamp paths? Sign me up!
