Hi, I'm writing because I'm thinking about starting to play bass.
I already play electric guitar but a friend of mine needs a bass player for his band and I've always wanted to try.
So I wrote to ask a question about tone, I'm thinking of buying a cheap bass and amp to see if I like it and than, in a month, buy a good bass and amp for live use.
The sound I'm looking for is pretty much this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYCfDAn8trU
so my question is: what are the right (cheap) bass and amp for that tone? Do I need pedals? Am I going to be a bit near to that tone? For sure with a cheap bass I can't expect much but a bit about that tone.
