The Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass is an affordable workhorse designed to deliver maximum performance and fit your budget all at once.

The TRBX305 Bass 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. The neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-pc maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone. It 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.

The TRBX305 Bass is outfitted with YGD designed M3 pickups feature oversized polepieces and ceramic magnets for a clear, powerful tone with incredible definition and depth. The hum-cancelling design ensures your performance clean and noise-free while the integral thumb-rest provides unrivalled playability. The pickups are complimented by Yamaha’s exclusive Perfomance EQ active circuit with five performance-tuned full spectrum EQ curves optimized to give instant access to essential sounds along with powerful 2-band master equalization to shape and define your tone.

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.

19mm string spacing offers outstanding playability for technical slap or finger styles. Straight string pull from nut to machine head eliminates lateral tension, providing superior tuning stability and reducing overtones. 38mm nut width gives fast, comfortable playability for any style. Case not included.

Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

The Yamaha TRBX305 5-string bass is an excellent starting bass for someone who wants a 5-string but does not want to break the bank. Proprietary M3 pickups give the bass a full tone and really accentuates the bottom end of the 5th string. Selector switch makes this quite the versatile bass as well.

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

      Yamaha consistently puts out great instruments and this bass is no different. The neck is smooth and easy to play, the pickups sound great and the tone control is out of this world. You can dial in the most specific changes you want from bright and punchy to a low dark rumble. It's quality built and has a great feel and the ease of playability is what makes this stand out from the crowd. This is a stellar choice for any bass player looking to expand their sound.

        Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

        The Yamaha TRBX305 is an extremely versatile bass that can be used in any genre. The controls make it easy to dial in any tone you're looking for. The neck is very comfortable for a 4 string bass.
        The finishes, of which there are 5, look much classier than the price suggests.

            This bass from Yamaha is available in 4 different colors to match any musician's style. The bass feels super durable and like all things Yamaha, will last for years to come. Yamaha has gone a step further in ensuring the durability of this bass by using a fitted bolt-on neck for stability and comfort. The pickups are pretty much hum-free and provides great depth and tone. This is really a great bass, especially for the price!

            Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

            While I really stick to being a 4 string player, this 5 string really is calling my name. The Yamaha performance EQ makes this (really comfortable) 5 string come out swinging with clarity and punch. Most 5 string necks feel clunky to me, but this feels really good to me which is important. It also feels balanced. For a first impression, it really stands out...there goes my paycheck!

              Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

              This is an awesome bass that's loaded with a ton of features. One of the coolest but also simple innovations is the built in thumb rest on the pickup covers. It makes for a very comfortable playing setup. The electronics have tons of clarity and are easy to dial in the tone you're looking for. The selector switch offers preset tones including one optimized for slap and one that boosts your signal for a solo. It has a great playing neck and high quality tuners that ensure stability. This bass beats out most other basses in this price point for overall quality and useful features.
