The Yamaha BB mega-thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I want a GOOD cab 😉   Just take a look at the frequency range ...🙉
The Glockenklang does 36-18500 and is 400 watts. Soundwise this is like the comparison between an old Fiesta with broken exhaust and a new Mercedes. I played this 15"...it is really a stand alone cab without the caracteristics of an oldschool 15! 
Like the Mesa Boogie Power House 15" is.  But this is close to 40 kg

At least the soundfiles are international... 🙂 

Test Glockenklang

@AndyTravis - fretless?? Thinking of going Tapewounds?

Both Warwick and Fender have a new(I think) range of Tapewounds which will make this sound lush, protect your fingers and the fretboard.

By the way...because I want something easy to carry for rehearsals and live ( my bas player back....) I am thinking of getting one of this, maybe even two to have a nice light 800watts 2x15 rig...  I love a GOOD 15" speaker! 

The Glockenklang cabs are expensive but their neo speakers don't sound like neos! The speakers are built especially (and only) for Glockenklang

Glockenklang 1x15 Art line

I had a Glock set up for a while - can't remember which model cab though - may have been the 2x12.

I was very impressed with the build quality and the tonal properties. I had the Soul head and coupled they sounded great. Shouldn't have sold them to be honest - that eternal search for that perfect sound.

I don't think that Glock get the recognition they deserve TBH - IMO it's up there with the best.

There seems to be a “thing” for retopped bb615’s 🤨E7DB9478-4688-41DB-9F77-305E5702C891.thumb.jpeg.7cafc9f83bd35f1e20294d9bc127d036.jpeg

An alternative choice for cabs are Hartke 112HD or 210HD. I just love the sound of my small Hartke Combo speaker.

Bet that sounds f'kin awesome!

+1^^

And a top notch Berg amp (yes it's D class and I know we were debating those a few pages back - but it gets my vote!) head to top it off. (I think there's one in the FS right now). 

@acroxixo is there a full rock band you're in, that your rig gets played with?

I play in 2 bands. Very different styles. 
One punk/hardcore band (3 px). 
The other is a blues/folk/rock/burlesque band (4 px). 
This rig does everything. I do have some pedals too. 
The BB1025 it’s fantastic. My StingRay5 stays at home now.

@acroxixo sounds great! Feel free to share any YT clips of you playing the bass / rig in action with either (or both!) of your bands. 

Of course, I'm pretty much the last person on BC who is going to contradict you about just how good a BB1025 is!

This would be the Glockenklang pendant... 800watts of the most true bass tone cabs on earth.

You have to consider what goes with the red inlays. Orange will clash.

metallic silver?
