Tonbridge, Kent

Recommended Posts

For sale only: Yamaha TRB II 5 string.

20201209_085353.thumb.jpg.4b4c29d67eae4f366e94e344051f4805.jpg

35" scale for a mighty B string, and an active B/M/T pre with volume/blend. Purchased from Brother Jones of this parish but now need to make space for impending house move...

43mm nut

4.6 kg

19mm spacing at bridge 

Condition:

Cosmetically as per photos, one small dent on front shown.

Fully working order and a lovely player.

All controls work well, although the centre detentes don't 'bite' as much as they maybe should. But the pots hold their position and I've never had a problem.

Comes with gig bag, of which the pocket zip doesn't work but the main bag zip does.

Will ship for free in UK by Parcelforce 48

I think @jhk has a similar bass - sounded amazing at the SE Bash.

This is an exceptional bass at an incredible price. If I hadn’t just bought a new boiler I’d buy this. Bawls.

Oh, I remember this :)

Yep, as others say, and speaking more specifically as its ex-owner, this will make someone very happy. And this price is outstanding VFM. And Kevsy is very good to deal with!

Can't believe this is still here! I'm currently trying to sell a later version of this (1005) if I could I'd be straight in on this 😁

Gnnn, likewise - or, rather, I'm not trying to sell but I'm having to really restrain myself from buying this to replace my TRB1005J.

I had a fretless of this. Awesome - GLWTS. I love my custom bass (GB) but it's nice to know that in a post-nuclear environment, me and the 'roaches can find a Yammy and get a great bass... Industry standard!

      Turns out I really need £350, and how is this German-built five-string two-pickup bass not worth such a paltry amount? Rhetorical question, btw.
      Anyway, AYMBA, before the Rockbass thing, Warwick produced these entry-level passive Streamers in Germany. This one is the 5-string, 2-pickup model, built in September 2000. The body is carolena (pine, apparently) and the neck is ovangkol. Natural oil finish and one-piece bridge. Sounds very nice too, though the output seems a bit quieter than most basses -- I understand that's down to the pots used on this model, but haven't got around to replacing them. Proper solid chunky wood, hence 4.2kg / 9.26lb. Comes in a Warwick gig bag ('proudly made with RokTex©'). Some wear and tear to the body if you look closely. Strung low E to high C.
      Sensible offers entertained. Sorry, no overseas postage. Not keen to post at all, in fact, but might be persuadable within the UK.
      OK, £275 anyone? Pretty much what you'd pay for a cheapo Rockbass, only you get a proper German one to show off to your mates and feel all growed up.

      A lovely early 80's Yamaha JB600R Jazz up for grabs. These are exceptional jazz basses and every bit as good as early JV Squiers IMO. 
      This one has a beautifully dark rosewood board and a rather fetching Larry Graham style white finish. It weighs just 8.5lbs, is perfectly balanced, sounds great and comes with a nice gig bag. 
      The flats currently on it aren't included (it'll come with rounds) but I seriously recommend the buyer throws some flats on it. Perfect bass tone 😍
      I'd keep this one but I seem to have accidentally acquired a matching black one..
