    Does anyone know the brand and type of strings yamaha sends out on this bass? Thanks
     
  2. From what I know, Yamha makes its own strings.

    I've pondered this important question myself. Do the strings have red silk at the tuners?

    Old thread but ill chip in.

    I brought a TRBX505 last month and it has XL's on it. No red silk, just the same colour ball ends as on my other basses that use these strings.

    In fact you only have to look at the images on line of the OP's bass to see there is no red silk on the strings.

    Maybe it's an 'Only in Canada' thing.

    I just changed the strings on my TRBX504 and compared it exactly! EXL170 Nickel Wound Bass, Light, 45-100.
