Nathan East has appeared on countless albums and has toured with some of the biggest names in modern music. Whether he's playing blues with Eric Clapton, pop with Phil Collins, or contemporary jazz with Fourplay, Nathan relies on his BBNE2 signature 5-string bass to deliver the tone he needs.
Nathan East Signature Model
The two-octave neck is built from maple and mahogany with an ebony fingerboard inlaid with figured abalone. The BPZ-7 bridge features individual, machined saddles that provide precise intonation, a low profile. The stacked Alnico humbuckers run through Yamaha's 5-control active electronics, which feature a custom 3-band EQ with a switchable mid-cut to provide sonic versatility for any situation.
The stack type pickups are designed in collaboration with Nathan East. The Alnico V Humbucker pickups include a hum-canceling coil.
Individual Bridge Pieces
The bridge consists of individual bridge pieces that reduce interference from other string vibration delivering a purer tone.
Mid Cut Frequency
Mid Cut On-Off Switch
Active electronics include a special equalizer circuit based on Nathan East's "Magic Box". The circuit lets you cut off the selected mid frequency at the touch of a switch for precision sound tailoring.
5-Piece Neck Through design
The neck through design uses a 5-piece maple and mahogany neck sandwiched between the maple on alder body.
Both the front and back of the bass body are contoured to provide players with a compact, well fitting instrument that offers greater playing comfort.
