New gear suggestions.
Hi there, I used to play bass a few years back but sold off my gear. I am looking to get back into playing again. I used to play an Ibanez Soundgear. And I think a real old Fender amp.
Anyway I have the itch to play again. I generally go for a cleaner sound when playing with quite a bit of punch to it.
I figured I would go with good gear or go home :P. I don't need anything crazy loud, as the max I would do is jam with some friends and not at any crazy levels. Mainly I want high quality sound for practice around home.
I figure my budget would be around $500 for a bass and $500 for an amp.
I was considering these Amps. Orange Crush PiX, either their 50W or 100W model. Ampeg BA115, Fender Rumble 150, maybe even the 350W.
Basses, I was looking at these in particular.
Fender Blacktop Jazz Bass
Blacktop J for sure. I like a lot of Ibanez basses but was never able to bond with any SRX ones. The parts were always way cheap to me. So on the bass, I would say the J.
For the amp, spend just a few more dollars and go with this.
Lightweight, modular, can stack vertical or horizontal, and should be plenty loud. Just a lot more rig for the money.
By the way, it looks like you just joined. WELCOME to TalkBass!
