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:

This is a great bass for beginners or pros who don't like to carry their expensive high-end instruments around town. The playability is superb - you'll be able to reach really high up the fret board. Also that thumb rest on the pickup is a really cool idea.

Great Affordable Bass

By

Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

If you're looking to get into bass, or want to add an affordable 5 string to your arsenal, this is a great choice, especially if you play heavy music. This bass shares a lot of features and aesthetics with an Ernie Ball Stingray or Bongo, at a quarter the price. It's active electronics allow a lot of shaping right there on the bass, and it's one of the lowest priced active electronics I've seen on a bass. Between that and the 2 humbuckers, this bass has output for days.

    What is Yamaha not great at building? These basses are far superior to other in the price range. The play great and have a great sound as well. The necks are very comfortable and the pickups really pack a punch. Even the finishes look great! What more could you ask for?

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

      This is a great playing and sounding bass and is very reasonably priced. The integrated finger rest built into the pickup covers is a really cool innovation and makes playing very comfortable. The feel of the neck is very comfortable and pickups are dynamic offering a wide range of tonal possibilities. This is a great bass for anyone looking for a good quality instrument that isn't too expensive.

      GREAT BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE BASS

      By 

      from Edison, NJ

      Staff Reviewer

      Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

      Very solid bass for he intermediate guitarist looking for a fairly versatile 5 string. Comes at a great price with very little sacrifice of value and playability. The large size of the M3 pickups that come stock are defiantly noticeably clear and defined in sound. Amazing or practice and active gigging

        Yamaha does it again with a killer 5 string bass at a killer price. The bass is fun to play, and as versatile as any other bass on the market. The M3 pickups sounds great and with the active EQ you can dial in tone for days.

        Comments about Yamaha TRBX305 5-String Bass Guitar:

        Anyone who wants to learn bass and also learn a 5 strings, this is for them. Very comfortable and doesnt sound bad for its price point either. Not a solid, but laminated body and feels good to play.

        Great sound for a great price

        Staff Reviewer

        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.
