Yamaha TRB6II (Yamaha - TRB6II)

By MGR/Anonymous, 13/04/2004
I went into this music store called mom's music one day looking to see what they had i knew they were an authorized Yamaha dealer and i wanted to try out one. i went in and saw this beautiful 6 string bass hanging on the wall i was looking for a 6 string anyway so i went over looked at the price tag and was wo this is way out of my price range the price on the tag was $1999.99 so I talked to this guy named howie who worked there and he told me he could give me an excellent deal on this bass he said since the 04 model was about to come out he could sell me this one for $1000 bucks off i was like holy crape i couldn't believe it so i actually went and pluged it up it sounded as beautiful as it looked. i bought right then and there

this bass looks killer and you can get any tone out it you want you can make growl like any other bass the only one i would compare it to would be warick or you can make the highs just sing. with the on board 3 band paremetic eq that has -15 to +15 db cut or boost you can go from a growling low end monster to high crisp like a tin can(which by the way dosen't sound to good but the point is you can get that sound easily if thats what you want extremely versitle I play in about 3 different bands and jam around with numerous bands and people aronud my area playing jam rock to e-mo to jazz to hard rock it doesn't matter this bass does it all

there is not anything I dislike about this bass the intonation is perfect but i still trying to find that perfect action hieght. but that can be easily adjusted by anyone

it is built like a rock solid alder body and a 3 piece maple/mahogany neck and a rosewood board the neck is straight as an arrow and the dual truss rod is superb

this is the best bass i've ever purchased and will probley never sell it if your looking for an awesome versetile 6 string you should check this out

Yamaha TRB 4P (Yamaha - TRB4P)

By MGR/Anonymous, 12/05/2009
The finish it's a very fine translucent red/orange, the bass is on mint condition, the color is spectacular because depends on light it becomes more red or more orange, this the top line bass and I paid 600dls for it, on a hartke cabinet the bass sounds with a immaculate growl and clarity

I use it as my main bass, because the sound is wonderful, I think the piezo it's a very interesting plus, it gives another range of frequencies and surround the groove. I love the fit and the finish of this bass, I think the first TRB series are the best of Yamaha, it is very versatile you can play any kind of music with it

I think this bass is excelent, it's for professionals, the only thing I could say here would be that the piezo doesn't fit on all songs, but you can use the cut switch.

Is a neck-thru construction on a 5 pieces and 3 pieces maple body and the finish and quality are perfect glossy red/orange, the stap buttons are larger than the standard and that's good because they make you feel secure about carrying it

Yamaha TRB 1005 (Yamaha - TRB1005)

By MGR/Eddie G., 08/01/2011
I am a gospel, Funk, RandB and Reggae bass player of 14 years and a drummer with a lot of recording experience going back 29years and I own a recording studio.. This is a 35'scale 5 string active bass with a maple neck alder body with quilted maple top natural amber finish and rosewood fretboard.

I bought this bass brand new at guitar center on clearance. I paid $475 dollars and the original price was either $1299 or $1499. I bought this bass because it's soud was more tweakable than the Ibanez BTB 455 that I owned at the time. And like my BTB it string spacing was wider than standard 5 string basses that I was used to.

The electronics on this bass is awesome. It has a three band eq with a master volume and blend pot. The sound is very versatile and this bass would fit in any style of music. To me I can get a very Hi Fi sound to an earthy sound by manipulating the preamp. I am very pleased with this bass.

The only two things I don't like about this bass is that it is a 9 volt bass instead of a 18 volt because it would have increased headroom. When you single out a pickup you will get some hum which shouldn't happen with a bass equipped with humbuckers.

The frets are finished nice the bridge keeps everything in tune I only adjusted the trussrod once in 4 years, the tuners hold great tension the neck pocket has 6 bolt. The jack will need to be replaced because it doesn't hold the cable well. I have dropped this bass twice because of a flimsy strap I had at the time and the bass suffered no problems barely even a nick at all.

This is a versatile bass that can suit the requirements of many different genres and should be on your list to try if you find one, they were offered in 4,5,6 string versions and a fretless version was available also. I am looking to buy another one to go with the one that I already have because I believe you can't get enough of a good thing.
