High-value Bass with Active Electronics

The Yamaha TRBX240 4-string electric bass guitar is a fantastic instrument for players wanting their first active bass, and for players needing a high-quality backup for not a lot of money. A pair of single-coil pickups offer a popular palette of tones. And an active preamp lets you fine-tune the tone of your TRBX204 to whatever musical situation you may be in. The Yamaha TRBX204 electric bass guitar is a great way to add an active bass to your collection for a fantastic value.

Yamaha TRBX204 4-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Incredibly popular pickup combination
  • 2-band active electronics
  • A reliable instrument for a great value
Incredibly popular pickup combination

The split-p and j-style single-coil pickup combination is one of the most popular pairings for bassists in many different styles. The neck pickup delivers the midrange-focused growl and low end that is required in a bassist's arsenal. The single-coil in the bridge position adds attack and definition to your tone. And by soloing that pickup you'll enjoy Jaco-like higher-end punch. Use the blend knob and you'll be able to conjure any balance of the two pickups that you desire.

2-band active electronics

A step up from the TRBX174, the 204 series adds a powerful 2-band active preamp for optimizing your sound. The bass knob will boost or cut your low end for round, jazzy thump. The treble control will determine the clarity and cut you hear. And a turn of the pickup blend knob further opens up the tonal options of the TRBX240. Whether you need cut for slap bass or fat thump, the active package in the TRBX240 gets you there.

A reliable instrument for a great value

Yamaha instruments are well known for their high construction quality and how much instrument you get for your money. The TRBX240 4-string offers features like an active preamp, classic tonewood construction, and a design that looks great at any gig. These features add up to an electric bass that is perfect for learning to play or as a workhorse gigging instrument. And at an affordable price point, the Yamaha TRBX240 is one of the better values in the world of bass.

Surprisingly Amazing

Hard to believe that a bass at this price point can be so good. Neck is super comfy with no sharp fret ends at all. Active pickups sound amazing and fit and finish is way better than basses I’ve spent a lot more on. Yamaha’s Chinese manufacturing is ridiculously top notch. Not a loose part anywhere and feels solid and well built. Setup was perfect out of the box. All I had to do was tune it to my preference and that’s it! Of course the buying experience from Sweetwater is second to none.
