Yves Carbonne is a French artist, musician, bass, contrabass and sub-bass guitarist, composer and arranger.

He concentrates his work on musical composition and instrumental research.

His music is sophisticated and appreciated by a wide audience.

For the last fifteen years Yves has worked with the great luthiers Christian Noguera and Jerzy Drozd to develop his unique vision of the bass guitar. From those collaborations, the sub-bass was born. It's a bass guitar that can play one octave lower than a standard one. Yves created the sub-bass concept in 2003, with the help of La Bella strings.

Yves plays all kinds of bass guitars. He is known all over the world as the first 10 and 12 string fretless sub-bass guitarist (and lefty!). Of course, he still loves to play 4-string bass guitar and enjoys to collect vintage left-handed Fender Jazz Basses. He also plays double bass.

His music is a celebration of life and freedom.

Yves generally uses spectacular instruments for new sonorities to create and perform soulful music.

His last album "A Life" includes Marcus Miller on the song "New Love".
