: I am wanting to purchase my first bass guitar, but I need a few pointers as what Make/Model, 4/5 string, Amp etc. I should be looking for?
: I would be greatful for any advice or tips!!
I,ve gotta Washburn XB100 which was my first bass and it,s awsome, it has great playability and a comfortable feel a great bass without doing murder on your budget.My suggestion is to start with a 4 string cause it,s alot more vesatile. As for an amp start with something small like a combo amp or something don,t spend thousands on huge 1200 watt amps yet.A gallien-kreugger or Peavey are good starter amps.As for strings If you want a string that puts out a really bright tone I suggest Ernie Ball Nickel Roundwound Strings,i,ve got a set on right now and there awsome!If you want something more powerful or strong sounding I suggest GHS Bass Boomers.But i,m not the one make your decisions for you, look around in music stores or something and find what best suits you.Your sound is one of the most important things in bass playing.
