The Yamaha TRB1005J is the new 5-string version of the highly acclaimed 6 string model. Yamaha TRB was born as a versatile 6-string bass guitar along with the greater involvement of synthesizers in music in end of 1980s.
The new TRB1005J now extends that line down to the 5-string level and makes for a very attractive and powerful bass with a huge sound and tonal quality for further expression thanks its fine Solid Maple/ Alder Body and cutting edge electronics.
These basses boast top quality woods and electronics. With high-grade Alder bodies crowned by stunning Quilted Maple tops and rock-solid 3-piece bolt-on Maple necks with Rosewood fingerboards, these five and six-strings dig low and stay punchy. The 35" super long scale offers a tight feel with plenty of attack, even on earth-shaking low notes.
Each model features two Alnico hum-canceling pickups, made exclusively for the TRB in Yamaha´s Japan factory. The pickups are mated to a proprietary active preamp that features a three-band EQ, master volume and blend controls.
All of these TRB basses sport die-cast machines and solid brass bridges. Other appointments include oval Mother-of-Pearl position marker inlays on the fretted models, while the TRB1005F has a clean fingerboard design with Maple fret lines.
