  1. I don't really wanna spend that kinda money on it to be honest.
  2. Anaemic is probably a bad word for it. Its got the ceramic pickup and I dunno if its just not right for me. It sounds very metallic and (searching for a word here 😂) anaemic 😂. It's a pure powerhouse but I struggle to get any versatility out of it. I know I'll get scorned for that remark but it's true. I play many genres and it'll do the job but I'd like to get closer to the sound I'm after than what the sr5 offers.
  3. Hey folks. I have a 07 stingray 5 and it's a beast but I find it a little anemic and clanky but also solid as a rock. I've an opportunity to swap for a lakland skyline 5502 deluxe but not sure. All opinions welcome
  4. Yamaha TRB 5II For sale is my lovely Yamaha TRB 5 II from 2004. I believe the colour is called Sunburst but it's a very gentle fade over really nicely grained wood. It is a brilliant bass that is super versatile and for a 16yr old instrument it is in fantastic condition. 100% original. The build quality is as good as you'll find and the neck is a beauty. It has two Yamaha soapbar pickups and an active 3 band eq. Weight is 4.6 kg Nut width is 43mm What more can I say. It's basically a really high class 5 string that sounds beautiful, plays great. Hardcase included. Shipping is no problem
  5. Trying to fix a muddy tone on my bass 😤
  6. Yeah I've changed them around a good bit and mixed them and I can hear the difference but it stills leaves everything muddy
  7. Yeah I've tried a couple of batteries and no improvement. It's a funny one. I've everything flat and the bass sounds huge and powerful but slightly muddy. I don't know if the preamp needs a service or complete replacement but it's really annoying. I've Ernie Ball Slinkys on it now but I'm not sure if different strings will make enough of a difference
  8. Hey folks. I have a lovely yamaha trb 5ii bass. I'm very happy with the build quality and playability. Unfortunately I'm a little disappointed with the preamp and possibly the pickups. It seems to sound muddy almost all the time. I'm trying to eq it onboard as best I can but I can't get that nice clear tone I'm after. I have put new strings on it about 2 weeks ago. Would anyone have any suggestions Thanks
  9. My bridge is top loading only. Definitely not string thru body. Ernie Ball long scale winding length is 37.25" and goes to just beyond the nut before it tapers. Would that be ok for me
  10. Hey folks. I've a 35" scale yamaha trb 5ii bass and I'm wondering if standard 34" scale bass strings will work. It's a top loading bridge. Cheers
  11. Hey folks. I've the opportunity to buy a yamaha trb 5ii but I don't know much about them. Currently I have a stingray 4 with hipshot detuner. Would the yamaha cut through as good in a mix with 2 guitars drums and keys. I've played 5 string 35" basses before and have no issues with that. Cheers for your input
  12. Hipshot bass extender added. Still available
