Topic: Beginner advice for bass setup
Hey guys, I've been wanting to learn bass for a long time but synths have put the death grip on my finances up until now.
I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice around starting out.I don't really have anywhere close by that i can go check out gear so i've just been reading and listening to a bunch of demo's to narrow down some choices.
My budget is probably no more than $3-400 for bass and amp. So far the bass that has got me the most interested in the $200 range is the Ibanez grs200. I have mixed feelings around buying an amp because i will probably be playing in headphones most of the time but i know i will prefer to play on an amp when i have the place to myself.
The amp i found was Acoustic B100 MKll so if anyone has recommendations on those i'd appreciate it as well.
I understand the first and most important step is learning how to play but the thing i'm afraid of is not being happy with the sound quality from cheap gear and feeling discouraged to practice. Maybe i'm putting the cart before the horse on this ?
Thanks for any advice you guys can offer !
