What Yamaha Says...

You’re the bedrock of your sound. The foundation. The fundamental. You need an instrument that’s designed and built to be the core of your music. TRBX combines advanced design, precision engineering and time-honoured craftsmanship to create a bass that doesn’t compromise on comfort, tone, playability or road-ready durability. TRBX500 has a simple brief – tone. Premium mahogany construction and an ultra-musical active/passive pre-amp design deliver the flexibility and sheer tonal quality to allow you to sculpt the perfect sound for your music.

TRBX Electronics

TRBX500 features controls for master volume, balance and 3-band EQ with active/passive switch for maximum flexibility.

Pickups

YGD designed H5 pickups are defined by a clean, open tone that’s perfectly matched with the flexibility of the active/passive preamp design. Their quad-polepiece design and alnico magnets give them the power to drive the active circuit and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture every nuance in passive mode.

Electronics (Active/Passive selecter, Battery Alert)

TRBX500 models feature an audiophile-grade active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and extreme flexibility. The advanced design offers a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode and tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. High-quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability and a battery alert LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of low power to eliminate sudden power loss during performance.

Body

TRBX features a sculpted solid mahogany body, with a mass-optimized 3D design for the optimum balance between tone and comfort coupled with perfect weight distribution.

Neck

TRBX’s neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-pc maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone.

Neck Joint

TRBX uses a precision fitted bolt-on neck joint for maximum adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access.

Headstock

Straight string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing superior tuning stability and reducing overtones.

Nut

38mm (4-string) or 43mm (5-string) nut widths give fast, comfortable playability for any style.

Bridge

A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations to the body for full, rich tone combined with excellent adjustability and road-tested durability. 18mm string spacing on the 5-string model offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles.

Output Jack

Yamaha’s metal plate-mounted standard jack socket offers superior durability and easy maintenance.
