6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Unique Alder/Maple/Alder Body

The BB P35 Bass features a body constructed from a unique blend of maple and alder, increasing its overall stiffness for an accentuated midrange to cut through dense mixes. The dense maple centre provides a more uniform transmission of vibrations between the body and neck than traditional 1-piece bodies, delivering an unparalleled resonance and sustain. The alder top and bottom provides the bass with a lusciously smooth, deep bass tone, beefing up the midrange while adding a slight sizzle to the high end.

5-Piece Maple/Mahogany Neck

The maple/mahogany combination delivers incredible stability, while offering the best of both tonewoods for a bright, mellow sound. The neck is designed with an incredibly thin profile, improving its playability and feel to suit modern and traditional players. Coupled with a rosewood fingerboard, the 3 woods provide the bass with a complex high end and a smooth playing experience. The set of lightweight tuners provide better balance than standard tuners, complementing the overall feel of the bass while its open-gear design adds to the Yamaha’s aesthetics.

6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint

The Yamaha’s neck is attached to the body with a 6-bolt miter neck joint, offering a more efficient transfer of string vibration thought the body than conventional bolt-on joints. The miter joint holds the neck closer to the body to provide a tighter hold and improving sustain and resonance, allowing the bass to bring life to every note.

Custom V7 Pickups

A set of powerful custom V7 pickups provide the Yamaha with its incredible tonal range, designed with alnico V magnets to deliver a fat, penetrating tone which complements the alder/maple/alder body. These organic, well-defined pickups have been carefully selected for the 700 series, ensuring players receive a uniquely versatile performance with the classic BB tone. A single tone control and 2 volume controls provide versatile tone shaping, allowing players to dial in the perfect sound for their playing.

Vintage Plus Bridge

The bass’ vintage plus bridge enhances the overall sustain and resonance of the strings by incorporation a unique ‘diagonal body through stringing’. This is achieved by angling the strings at the saddle to pass through the body at a 45-degree angle, placing less stress on the strings as opposed to the more traditional vertical stringing. This method allows the bridge to transfer the string vibrations to the body reliably and efficiently. The vintage plus bridge also allows the strings to be attached to the tail end, with a convertible bridge offering 2 different angles for precise tone shaping. The bridge is also equipped with steel saddles and plate, offering a slightly deep low end with a bright tone.

Yamaha's Initial Response Acceleration Treatment

While new basses tend to look nice and fresh, it usually takes a while before they reach a better tone and feel. This is because basses benefit from being ‘played in’, a process which occurs when the instrument matures and opens up to deliver a better sound quality and playability. Yamaha’s I.R.A. treatment makes this ‘played in’ feel and sound available from day one. This is achieved by applying specific vibrations to the complete bass to mimic this ageing process, resulting in a high-quality sound on a fresh looking bass.
