Chocolate Audio – BBassV Electric Bass (KONTAKT)

By | September 6, 2016



The BBassV Electric Bass comes after several years of R&D at our headquarters and we think it sets a new benchmark in terms of playability and sound.

This virtual instrument is derived from a Yamaha BB415 5-string electric bass, one of the few “non-classics” instruments which we find has tons of character.
