: Hi, I am a trumpet player who just started playing bass. I know that equipment is
: a factor that everybody faces at any level. I was wondering when I decide to buy
: that special bass, what kind of woods should I check out? Also, I would like to
: know the differences between the woods as far as sound and etc. is concerned?
: I go to different websites and they just talk about where the woods came from
: instead of what they'll actually do for a player. Help?
You should really buy a fairly cheap bass first. Shop around in the $500 rage and get one that feels comfortable to play. That's the most important thing, at least as first. After a while of testing basses and learning what feature you prefer you can choose the right bass for yourself.
