    Yamaha BBNE2! Wow! Just Wow!

    For the past several years going to the NAMM Show and recently to Bass Player Live! 2016, I always make it a point to go and play one of these basses. I always used to say to myself, being the big Nathan East fan that I am, "I'm going to get one of these basses!". I always got sidetracked by something else.
    I am happy to report that I finally made it happen along with the help of Sales Engineer, Nick LaMendola. I received the bass on 5/24/17 and did two gigs with it this past weekend. What an awesome bass it is! I received several compliments on the cosmetics of it, as well as the tone. When you get compliments on how it sounds by fellow musicians and people who don't even play music, you know that says something. I've owned 3 Yamaha basses back in the day. They served me well but this Nathan East bass.....Yamaha really stepped it up! Bravo Yamaha!!

    Beautiful looking

    I'm not a big fan of huge company instrument such as Yamaha ,but this instrument is awesome. Nice playability on neck and fingering. Neck thru gives more smooth feeling while playing on high position.
    And the tone is different than other bass. Very focused mid sound and dry tone which I like. The tone is very clear. The edge of high tone is so pretty.
    For the eq, it boosts or cuts powerfully meaning you don't need to turn the knob all the way to shape the tone. Nice bass. The magic box switch was black before but now it has changed to silver. Because string color is silver, it matches.

    Worth every dime !

    I recently purchased the Yamaha BBNE2 and am extremely happy that I made the investment ! The electronics in this bass are second to none. I have been able to dial this bass in to exactly what I need. The "magic box" circuitry that allows me to be very specific with the midrange and the ability to switch it on and off definitely gives me all the range that I'll ever need. And the white with gold hardware is just killer ! Thanks again to the professional staff at Sweetwater for helping me get the gear that I need and making the experience great !
