introduced the TRBX Series
, a full line of electric basses, at the 2014 NAMM Show. Combining advanced design, precision engineering and time-honored craftsmanship, these new instruments offer easy playability, comfortable body shapes and road-ready durability.
The four-string TRBX304
, along with the five-string TRBX305
, include new EQ and pickup innovations. All four models feature a five-piece Maple/Mahogany neck for outstanding stability and excellent tone, along with finely crafted solid Mahogany bodies that are perfectly balanced and lightweight.
The 500-level basses are equipped with a 3-band Active EQ Control that can also be turned off for passive play. An Active/Passive switch lets players move between the two modes without losing any gain, ensuring the instrument's versatility during live settings. The 500 Series
also includes new H5
dual-coil pickups that deliver clear, punchy sound and a Battery Alert LED.
On the 300-level models, a Performance EQ Switch offers five performance-tuned full-spectrum EQ curves, which lets players switch between styles and sounds on the fly, including Slap, Pick, Flat, Finger and Solo settings, plus 2-band active EQ controls. The newly designed M5
hum-bucking pickups also feature built-in thumb rests.
"For years, loyal Yamaha bass players clamored for instruments in this price range and these new models will make players across the musical spectrum very happy,
" said Armando Vega
, product manager, Yamaha Guitars, Yamaha Corporation of America. "The EQ options offer unparalleled tone-shaping possibilities and the new pickups sound like nothing else on the market today.
