Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer secure checkout options like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Zip Pay and Bank Deposit.
American Express payments are also accepted, although most AmEx transactions will require manual authorization after payment (Someone from the team will contact you to confirm the transaction after checkout)

    So you've decided that the bass is the instrument for you. You're putting in the countless hours of practice, building your repertoire, and jamming with friends to tighten up your set in preparation for your onstage debut. The best-in-class durability, sound, and playability of the 200 lineup makes it the ideal instrument to help you take that crucial first step down the road to being a serious musician.

    The introductory model of the hardest working bass in the business: the Yamaha BB series.

    • Solid Alder Body
    • Custom V3 Pickups (Ceramic)
    • Vintage Style Bridge
    • Lightweight Open Gear Tuners

    Custom V3 Pickups

    A ceramic magnet pickup that delivers a clean, well-defined sound.

    Control

    The new BB models are equipped with one tone control and two volume control knobs, for versatile sound shaping.

    New Neck Shape

    The New BB models feature a slightly thinner neck than previous BB basses, improving playability and feel for both modern and traditional players.

    Lightweight Tuners

    Lighter weight tuners offer a better balance and complement the overall feel, providing a perfect match for the smaller, lighter body of the new BB.
