Yamaha TRBX 305 (White)

06.08.2014
This bass is fantastic value for money in terms of tone, build quality and what you get! I bought it as a first venture into 5-string basses and it certainly has not let me down. There are many reviews online, and here's another for the pile:

Features:
Active pickup. Although this means you actually have to pay for a new 9V battery every now and then to keep it running, this helps with the pre-amp circuitry of the bass, and allows a far greater tonal control. The battery compartment is easily accessible from the back of the bass.
4 knobs: volume, tone, bass and treble. As mentioned before, these have some serious impact when you use them. A really nice touch is that the tone, bass and treble knobs have a tactile click when you reach the centre (i.e. no cut or boost) so you know when to stop when resetting tones!
Tone preset selections: slap, pick, flat, finger, solo. These are another result of Yamaha's great thinking and active pickup - very handy as they can be used as is (with all other tonal control flat) or as a starting point to be modified by using the three knobs. I generally keep it on finger, or solo if I need a small volume boost.

Sound:
Yamaha once again do themselves proud on bass sound. The bass can be used in practically any genre; you'll find a working tone. The extremes of the tonal control knobs, combined together and potentially with an amp and/or effects units make it very desirable. Although I haven't used it in many genres whilst gigging, it's been fun - and a recommended learning point - to play with all settings and go to all extremes in my own practice time!

Quality:
Yamaha basses boast build quality. They are just great, and this is no exception. Sturdy and strong, yet not too heavy. Definitely something I can rely on to work when I need it to!

Melba, 18.08.2014
Most :
- Very pleasant handle (back satin and not varnished to facilitate the glides).
- Well balanced instrument.
- Very beautiful varnished finish.
- Fairly light.
- Unbeatable value for money.
- Quite versatile at the sound level, without being able to reproduce very typical sounds like Jazzbass or Precision (But that's what I was looking for).
- Microphones that are capable of "grunting", exactly what I was looking for.

The lessers :
- The nuts and screws of the mechanics were not tightened. Not much, but gives a bad impression.
- Selector 5 positions of presets of equalization a little gadget for my taste.
- No possibility to play passive as on the TRBX-505.
- No battery end-of-life indicator as on the TRBX-505.
- Not set at delivery, but hey, no instrument is anyway ...
