Buena Park, Calif. (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Yamaha introduces the TRBX Series, a full line of electric basses. Combining advanced design, precision engineering and time-honored craftsmanship, the new basses offer easy playability, comfortable body shapes and road-ready durability.

The four-string TRBX304 and TRBX504, along with the five-string TRBX305 and TRBX505, include new EQ and pickup innovations. All four models feature a five-piece Maple/Mahogany neck for outstanding stability and excellent tone, along with finely crafted solid Mahogany bodies that are perfectly balanced and lightweight.

The 500-level basses are equipped with a 3-band Active EQ Control that can also be turned off for passive play. An Active/Passive Switch lets players move between the two modes without losing any gain, ensuring the instrument’s versatility during live settings. The 500 Series also includes new H5 dual-coil pickups that deliver a clear, punchy sound, and a Battery Alert LED.

On the 300-level models, a Performance EQ Switch offers five performance-tuned full-spectrum EQ curves, which lets players switch between styles and sounds on the fly, including Slap, Pick, Flat, Finger and Solo settings, plus 2-band active EQ controls. The newly designed M5 hum-bucking pickups also feature built-in thumb rests.

“For years, loyal Yamaha bass players clamored for instruments in this price range and these new models will make players across the musical spectrum very happy,” said Armando Vega, product manager, Yamaha Guitars. “The EQ options offer unparalleled tone-shaping possibilities and the new pickups sound like nothing else on the market today.”
