Yamaha TRBs

  1. Anyone had experience of these basses. I've just noticed a laminated body in clear varnish on thier recent adverts that looks sweet - but how do they play?:confused:

    I have a BB instead a TRB.

    TRB has a good sound but I prefer the smoth sound of BB.

    They are great basses for slap!

    I have not played them myself, but from what I heard they are very good basses. They are supposed to be fine for even pro level type stuff. Some of the top of the line from Yamaha.

    as long as you like the string spacing, they will do pretty much anything you want with the right pre-amp(IMHO). IIRC some people find the electronics to be a bit noisey.
