The question is, how long do we have to wait?

...

In a dealer? Anywhere between tomorrow and next year xD

 

It's good to see Yamaha pushing forward with new models though. They really are one of the best bang-for-buck brands

Ah, saw the ad on Facebook and started salivating immediately! As soon as they’re available I want one, the amber burst looks gorgeous and I think looks so much nicer than the new BB range.

Anyone know when they’re likely to arrive and get in the shops?

Electronics look the same as (or very close to) the 5 series. Anybody else happen to think the cheaper 3 series sounded better though?!

Hopefully better than the TRBX500 series.  I can’t say I was impressed at all with the 500 I had. It sounded quite bland and I didn’t regard the build quality to be any better than my Ibanez SR300, and I think the Ibanez actually sounded better.

I have to agree. I tried one out in Yamaha Music London about 3 years ago. One of the staff set me up in a lovely isolated booth, plugged into a good mixer & PA at moderate volume and it just sounded a bit dull to my ears. A shame as I quite liked the ergonomics.

I tried a 500 series last year and was most unimpressed with the sound and feel. I'm a huge fan of the original TRB I basses. They sounded and felt very special. I know the on board electronics could be a little noisy but it was easy to sort. I really wish Yamaha would take those basses in to account. I understand it's about moving forward as a company as well but the TRB I's were so right in my opinion, of course. The new Yamaha basses look ace but I have to be honest, the sound on the TRBX600 being demonstrated left me feeling cold. I'd still like to try one.

Most people gravitated towards the 500 series over the 300 due to it's nicer finish, active/passive switching, a 'grown up'  EQ rather than 'Fisher Price My First Active Bass' preset system, and the belief that the higher price reflected a higher quality bass.

However when I gave the 300 series a bash I instantly thought it was the better sounding instrument and those presets were pretty handy too!

      I am selling my beautiful Yamaha TRB 5Pii with maple top. The bass has a few dings and dongs, but is electronic 100% (see pictures).
      The bass is all original, except the string tree, which is added by the previous owner.
      The bass isn't that long in my possession and was more of a 'once in a lifetime chance' to get to play this wonderfull and hard to find bass. But i don't take it as often as my Yamaha BB5000, which is a whole different peace of bass.
      The bass has a perfect B-string, low action and weights 4.8kg. It is a bit heavy, but the sound is enormous.
      I am asking 1600 pounds. I think this is a reasonable price, according to more sales on the internet. If not, please let me know!
      Looking for cash, but a trade + cash is also an option. Shipping is possible, i can find a case and i have a box. Pickup is possible in The Netherlands or Germany.

      Hi all
      A great bass from the Yamaha custom shop in Japan, bought new from Yamaha Music London in Soho in 2017.
      I have been gigging with this bass for 2 years and it has never let me down. The build quality is fantastic and the neck is solid. I just fancy trying something new and different so would like to raise funds for a new bass.
      You can hear me playing it live in the video below where I had the bass set on the neck pick up just like a P Bass.
       
      I have mainly used it in P Bass mode and it is great for Motown and Soul and Disco music and sits perfectly in the mix.
      The added benefit of switching between pick ups creates a variety of different sounds and the tone dial has a lot of depth to it depending on how much you roll on or off. For example, you can get a great Jaco sound from the bridge pick up and then a quick change to sounding like Jamerson on the neck pick up. It's like having two basses in one. Or you can have a great Jazz Bass sound with plenty of bite and punch on both pick ups.
      It is in great condition and comes with a Yamaha case and certificate. Come and check it out.
      My feedback is here https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/298215-feedback-for-darylclayton/?tab=comments#comment-3211013
      Thanks
