  1. Quiz time:

    I am interested in the Yamaha TRB4II but am confused. There seems to be two different types of TRB4II around. Hopefully I have attatched the pictures. So is one of them the old model and one the new? Or are they both current and just different models? What is the difference? The images seem to used randomly around the internet with the same model name. Thanks everybody.

    Piezo's are a pickup built into the bridge. They are characterized by making the bass sound "more acoustic"...they can make the treble kind of harsh, however. Some people dig them very much.
