Yamaha is proud to offer the TRBX505 5-String Premium Electric Bass. This sleek bass gives you a comfortable contoured body and a fast 5-piece maple/mahogany neck—perfect for any playing style. Powerful YGD H5 Alnico V pickups and an advanced active/passive preamp design provide flexibility and tone shaping to craft your ideal sound.

Premium Mahogany Construction for Rich Tone

The TRBX505's sculpted solid mahogany body delivers balanced, resonant tone and comfortable playability. Its 5-piece maple/mahogany neck offers stability, adjustability and punchy tone. The combination of premium tonewoods results in full, rich sound with singing sustain.

YGD H5 Pickups for Power and Nuance

Yamaha designed the quad-polepiece YGD H5 pickups to provide clean, open tone with the power to drive the active preamp and the sensitivity to capture each subtlety in passive mode. Their alnico magnets and balanced windings readily handle the demands of any genre.

Audiophile-Grade Active/Passive Preamp for Ultimate Control

The TRBX505's active/passive preamp gives you maximum tonal flexibility. The advanced design offers matched output in passive or active mode and seamless switching between treble control and master passive tone. Quality components provide increased conductivity, reliability and instant low-battery indication. Sculpt your ideal sound for any musical situation.

Precision Components for Playability and Sound

A high-mass die-cast bridge efficiently transfers string vibrations for rich tone and sustain. 18mm string spacing offers comfortable playability for any technique. Straight string pull from nut to tuner reduces overtones and improves tuning stability. A 43mm nut width gives fast, comfortable playability. Yamaha's durable metal jack plate withstands the demands of frequent use and touring.
