Yamaha Basses — a Brief Overview
Yamaha manufactures three main lines of bass guitars as well as several artist signature models. The core Yamaha bass family includes the RBX, TRBX and BB series. The midrange TRBX series is one of our most popular models — see below for more information. If you're looking for something more beginner-oriented, consider the RBX, which offers exceptional playability as well as several features not found on other entry-level models.
To take your performance to the next level, look to the BB, which includes the top-of-the-line, made-in-Japan BB Pro — an industry standard since 1977. For something unique, consider one of Yamaha's signature bass models, endorsed by legendary players such as Nathan East and Billy Sheehan.
About the Yamaha Bass TRBX Series — a Midrange Favorite
If you're ready to graduate from entry-level basses, consider the Yamaha TRBX series — a perennial favorite of the Bananas staff and one of our bestselling models. The TRBX 204 features a basswood body, 34" scale length and a PJ configuration, with a punchy split coil pickup in the neck position and a single coil in the bridge position that can be dialed in for extra grit.
What separates the TRBX 204 from an entry-level instrument is its two-band, active preamp. A battery-powered preamp opens up a world of new tonal possibilities — ideal for adventurous players who are continually refining their sound or anyone who wants additional versatility. With just the turn of a knob, you can go from metal-inspired grind to classic country thump. Unique in its price point, the TRBX 204 is the perfect way to elevate your playing.
