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!!
