Summary: Overall i think this a great bass, its great for any one who wants a 5-string or even someone who is new to playing bass. Its not too expensive, great value for money. It has met all my expactations and after mastering the 5-string im going to move onto the 6-string (JM2 best bass ever).
Summary: I bought this bass used here from a fellow TB'r and I love it. It has a moderately bold tone and is capable of doing everythting I need it to do. I have gotten alot of compliments on my tone while playing this bass.
Summary: I wanted a 5-string for a second bass for less than $400 and this was the best I could find. The pickups are quiet and have plenty of output and the controls give you a wide variety of usable tones. It's not light (9.25lbs) but the small headstock with Gotoh-style tuners gives it good balance. This is my first 5-string but learning to play it was easy because the string spacing is not too close and the action is low.
Pros: excellent pickups and controls, good balance, easy to play, looks good
Cons: low B could be better, headstock finish chips easily
Summary: I got this new (for more than I should have done really, but oh well) as a second bass, wanting to try a 5-string. I have never looked back. The entire instrument is made flawlessly, and I find that the finish hides scratches pretty well, except on the headstock (doesn't appear to be sealed, and i keep whacking it in the ceiling because I'm, well a bit of a spacko sometimes).
Summary: This bass is active base and its pickups are humbacking. It's got a plastic cover on its head which makes this bass look cheaper. If you use 050-105 strings and a good amp, this bass sunds much better. RBX 170 is another choice but this one is better bass to star. All black. Its body is alder. I think you won't waste your money buying this bass. Ibanez will be another choice. You have to get spare 9V batteries because this bass doesn't work without dry battery.
Summary: I had been wanting to learn how to play the bass guitar for a long time, so I took a friend of mine with me and went to various music shops and tried a selection of bass guitars out. I wanted a 5 string as it gives more flexibility with the extra string (low B). The thing growls like theres no tomorrow when plugged into my Roland practice combo. It looks the business and I don't know how Yamaha can do it for the money.
Summary: ¿Qué es lo primero que me atrae de un instrumento musical? ¿Su sonido? Por sentido común debería serlo. Pues no. La estética, su apariencia física es lo primero que me enamora. En mi opinión, el RBX de Yamaha presenta una estética exquisita, desde el modelado de su cuerpo, pasando por su estilizado cuello y hasta su asimétrico clavijero. Una vez deslumbrados por su belleza, pasemos a lo que nos atañe: su sonido y su manejabilidad.
Pros: Sonido brutal .
Cons: Un poco difícil de domar . Pastillas con imanes descubiertos (se puede solucionar)
Summary: El Yamaha RBX 375, está en tres distintos colores, plateado, negro, y rojo. En mi opinión es el bajo perfecto para pasar de cuatro cuerdas a las cinco, como fue mi caso. No recomendaría que lo comprara nadie que no ha tocado el bajo en su vida, ya que empezar con uno de cinco cuerdas sería desperdiciar la potencia de este bajo.
