NBD: My first bass arrived! Yamaha inside.


My first bass guitar, Yamaha RBX-374 arrived.

It's amazing! I'm very happy! Thanks for helping me choose this amazing piece of music instrument.

Now i must buy an amp just for the bass because i'm worried about blowing up the Yamaha THR-10, i know it can handle bass, but you know... 3 inch speakers...

I know the RBX-375 and Ibanez SR300 are better choices but i don't live in USA so i had to pay 10% comission to a seller and aldo had to pay 70$ for shipping and 80$ for taxes. I bought it Restock from MF with 15% discount coupon so the value paid for it was 204$ and the total value spent with taxes/shipping/seller comission is almost 400$ usd but here in Brazil it costs nearly $650 usd so it was a great deal for me.

Beginner gear

Yamaha FG700S
Yamaha Pacifica 112V
Yamaha RBX-374
Yamaha THR-10

Wow, that brings me back! I first played that bass 7 years ago. Still remember it, the bassist of a Hardcore band was injured and I had to sub. Pretty fun and playable bass, bang for the buck. Enjoy.

The RBX375 is no better, just different because it has an extra string. anyway, HNBD! Hope you enjoy it!

Congratulations. I'm gonna have to revise some Yamaha's, because i haven't been playing them lately and i know they're always a great choice. Have fun!
