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.
