Loading product options

The TRBX505 5‐string bass guitar features premium Mahogany construction and an active/passive pre‐amp design that delivers the flexibility and sheer tonal quality to sculpt the perfect sound for your music. The pickups have a quad pole‐ piece design and Alnico magnets that give them the power to drive the active circuit and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture every nuance in passive mode. High‐quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts providing increased conductivity. It also has a 5‐piece Maple/Mahogany neck, battery alert LED, high‐mass die‐cast bridge, straight string‐pull from nut to machine head, and metal plate‐mounted jack.  

Body

TRBX features a sculpted solid mahogany body, with a mass-optimized 3D design for the optimum balance between tone and comfort coupled with perfect weight distribution.

Neck

TRBX’s neck design combines a fast, ultra-comfortable profile with 5-pc maple/mahogany laminated construction for outstanding stability and excellent tone.

Pickups

YGD designed H5 pickups are defined by a clean, open tone that’s perfectly matched with the flexibility of the active/passive preamp design. Their quad-polepiece design and alnico magnets give them the power to drive the active circuit and the sensitivity and subtlety to capture every nuance in passive mode.

Electronics

TRBX500 models feature an audiophile-grade active/passive circuit for fine tonal control and extreme flexibility. The advanced design offers a level-matched output whether in passive or active mode and tone-switching circuitry that seamlessly moves from treble control to master passive tone. High-quality gold plated parts are used for key signal chain contacts, providing increased conductivity and reliability and a battery alert LED installed on the back panel gives instant indication of low power to eliminate sudden power loss during performance.

Neck Joint

TRBX uses a precision fitted bolt-on neck joint for maximum adjustability and clear, punchy tone. Developed through hundreds of hours of play-testing, the refined neck joint shape perfectly balances strength, vibration transfer and upper-fret access.
