Thank you John. That was a very thorough job!

I started out playing electric bass about 28 years ago. Some of the earliest books I used back then were Mel Bay and Caro Kaye. ;-)
I switched to jazz guitar in the late 70's, more out of necessity than anything else. There was a ton of work for guitarists, but there wasn't much for bassists. Now I find myself leaning towards bass again.
Forgive me, but I have several more questions.
What amplifier configuration do you use?
I am currently playing two electric basses. Both five stringers. I uses round wounds on the fretted and flat wounds on the fretless. I will be buying a double bass soon. I'm leaning towards the pickup option for the DB. I use an amp that has 4 tens, and it puts out about 200RMS. Will I need an amp that puts out more wattage?
Will the DB require a more substantial speaker configuration?
Thank you!
