Hey all! As promised, here is my Yamaha TRBX304 and Fender Rumble 40 studio amp setup. I was going to say I had the only candy apple red Yamaha thus far, but saw that Howard posted one really recently; nice!
It really is gorgeous. Once I saw one in red, buying it was inevitable.
Mine came set up pretty well, too. The only thing it really needed was lowering the action a bit. Yamaha is pretty solid for quality, I’ve been a Yamaha fanboy for a long time.
Your Rumble 40 Studio looks pretty intriguing, too . . . some of us have been wondering about that series. I just have the regular Rumble 25 for now.
Good luck with your equipment and happy playing, Joe
My 304’s neck came a bit out of whack, but luckily have a local guitar store up the street that I had them do a set-up on it for me. Much improved, though I did have to raise the saddle of my E string a bit as it had some fret buzz still.
The studio 40 is incredible! I had an older Fender Mustang 1 amp for for my guitar a few years ago that I think was one of their 1st amps that had the whole slew of selectable “tones” on it. I thought THAT one was intense until I started playing around with this thing - amazing stuff! The fact that it can connect to WiFi to stay updated with new versions/software is really slick.
The right strings and a setup makes such a huge difference… Even just dead strings can turn a “yay” bass into an “ugh” bass, in my experience.
very lovely! Welcome to the forums!
Thanks, Gio! I am quite enjoying my lessons w/Josh and my time on the forum thus far; looking forward to hanging and contributing!
