: This is My fist time posting a message so please be gentle. I've only been playing for a few months and the bass I have is pretty much at the bottom of barrel. It's an Aria pro 2 magna 9, most of you have probably never heard of it but anyway, it cost me 300 Irish punts ( I'm irish ) and I'm trying to decide whether or not to trade it for a second hand Tanglewood Stingray copy which going for somewhere in the region of of 280 punts ( I don't know how many dollars that is). The aria has active pickups but I don't know about the Tanglewood. The salesman isn't much help and nether Tanglewood or aria have very helpful web sites so any light you could shed on the matter would be very helpful. Thanx

>>> Keep the Aria, Fergal, if you've indeed got the active model,
this is a $600 (list price) instrument in the U.S...Aria makes
good, honest gear...If you're unhappy with the playability of
the instrument, try perhaps having the action adjusted by your
local guitar repairman, or maybe go with a set of new strings,
try a lighter gauge perhaps as a beginner, this will help reduce
fatigue while you build up your chops..In your part of the world,
I would assume Rotosounds are popular and generally available, try
the SWING BASS "Swingmaster" set; gauges 040.060.080.100 they've
got a nice comfortable feel, and a new set of Rotosounds always
makes my basses sound great!!!

Cheers,
and Guinness belches..
