Here is one of the more unique pieces to ever grace our humble shop: The Fodera Yin Yang Standard Series 1. Fodera is a famed operation out of Brooklyn, NY started in 1983 by luthier Vinny Fodera and pro-bassist Joey Lauricella. Their Yin Yang model was launched to new heights when Victor Wooten wanted to claim one as a signature model. This is about the best endorsement any bass luthier could hope for and after picking this thing up, we can understand why. The Yin Yang Standard Series 1 was designed to recreate Wooten's deluxe model at a more reasonable price point. It may be a bolt on neck but they don't skimp on anything, using world class materials, hardware and pickups that you can see on stage with Victor. This particular model is now discontinued so don't miss your chance to grab a mint condition piece of Fodera's legacy!
The Yin Yang Series 1 features:
Alder body w/ Flame Maple Top - 8.8 pounds
1-Piece Maple Neck
34" scale, 24 frets
EMG PJ Active/Passive pickups
Mike Pope/Fodera Preamp
(1) Stacked Volume (1) Stacked Treble and Bass (1) Midrange (1) Pan (1) 3-Way Active/Passive Toggle
Aside from the obvious eye-candy this bass is designed for flawless playability and unparalleled tone shaping. The EMG PJ pickups have a modern voice by nature but with the stacked control options you can adjust it to nail classic tones to perfection. Our favorite feature is the active/passive toggle switch because with a simple flick the bass can change it's personality from stage to studio and anywhere in between. There's a reason Victor chose these as the power-source for his Yin Yang. As a player your hands with instantly fall in love with the slim contoured neck. We didn't tweak the setup before testing but it was dead on and everybody loves the slick performance of an ebony fretboard. Overall there's not too much to explain about a bass of this caliber. It's at the top of it's class and we guarantee it'll change the way you look at a 4-string.
