Does anyone know what strings the yamaha basses come stock with? I have a trb JP in which the stock strings sounded damn good.

I was wondering this, too. They have red silk on the tuner end.

The Yamaha trbx I tried a while back had daddarios on it stock.
The red silks on some I believe are ghs. Yamaha has a big presence in Michigan and ghs is there

I discovered DR's around 1990, before that, I used to order Yamaha strings from Yamaha. They were probably OEM'd for them, but the package was branded Yamaha and they did sound great. Sorry, not much help.

A Yamaha salesman told me that the BB 424 comes with OEM Hartke strings, lights .45 .065. .080 .105. Cheaper strings, but sounds good.

Wow sounds like quite a variety.. Thanks
Back when I was a Yamaha dealer (although I left retail in '88) they put D'Addario strings on all the instruments when they came into California. That's according to the Yamaha dealer newsletter we used to get, and matches my experience with D'Addario on guitars and basses.
Of course that's been so long ago they could have been through every string maker in the world now, and might even own their own string winding equipment in Japan. At one time Yamah's goal was to be able to provide everything a musician needed for a gig, including the vehicle to haul it, except they never sold any cars in the US.
