The Yamaha TRBX204 4-string electric bass guitar is a fantastic instrument for players wanting their first active bass, and for players needing a high-quality backup for not a lot of money. A pair of single-coil pickups offer a popular palette of tones. And an active preamp lets you fine-tune the tone of your TRBX204 to whatever musical situation you may be in. The Yamaha TRBX204 electric bass guitar is a great way to add an active bass to your collection for a fantastic value.
The split-p and j-style single-coil pickup combination is one of the most popular pairings for bassists in many different styles. The neck pickup delivers the midrange-focused growl and low end that is required in a bassist's arsenal. The single-coil in the bridge position adds attack and definition to your tone. And by soloing that pickup you'll enjoy Jaco-like higher-end punch. Use the blend knob and you'll be able to conjure any balance of the two pickups that you desire.
A step up from the TRBX174, the 204 series adds a powerful 2-band active preamp for optimizing your sound. The bass knob will boost or cut your low end for round, jazzy thump. The treble control will determine the clarity and cut you hear. And a turn of the pickup blend knob further opens up the tonal options of the TRBX204. Whether you need cut for slap bass or fat thump, the active package in the TRBX204 gets you there.
