: Sorry for such a simple question on a board that is clearly populated with actual musicians....but I was wondering if you all had recommendations on a good instrument/gear for me to start with. Not crazy expensive, but also not something that I'll regret buying as soon as I know anything at all about the instrument.... I couldn't be any more of a beginner, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I know how you feel :-)
I just got my first bass a few weeks ago, a Squire Affinity p-bass, for £130, which, I think, is perfect to start with. I also got a small 40W soundking amp to practise with for £80, sorry I don't know US prices though.
Hope this gives you some ideas, I'm sure you won't regret starting bass!
