Yamaha SB-1 Electric upright bass

The Yamaha SB-1 electric upright bass doesn’t just look extremely cool, it’s the perfect answer to all the problems encountered when trying to amplify, record or transport an acoustic one. The dual piezo pickups give an excellent natural upright bass sound, and with the addition of the processors of your choice (chorus, overdrive etc) you can move into electric solid bass territory. In the studio, DI to the desk and avoid all the spill problems.

The body is solid beam construction, 3/4 scale, and has a frame with wooden rests to allow for comfortable playing, and detaches for easy transporting. The onboard battery-powered  (9v PP3) pre-amp allows for silent paractise using the headphone socket; the volume and tone controls work with either the headphone or line outputs. An auxiliary input enables playing along with recorded accompaniment for practise. Dual piezo pickups, standard 1/4” output jack, colour brown, frame black with dark mahogany wooden extensions.

Overall in good condition, a few slight scuffs on the frame, fingerboard perfect, hardware all perfect. Currently strung with flatwound strings. No case, unfortunately, so you’d need to contact Yamaha for that.

Originally retailing at almost £2000, here’s your chance to pick up a superbly crafted instrument at a bargain price - get bidding!

OK, here’s the small print: payment by PayPal only or collect and pay in cash; given the size and weight, and the lack of case, I can’t offer delivery. I could meet within fifty miles or so if you can pay the petrol... length with the spike in is 1.7m, so make sure you have a long enough car!

Overseas buyers: No overseas buyers on this one - it’s too big!
