Hello all, Firstly apologies if I've posted in the wrong part of the forum. I expect a mod will move this if it is. Anywho I was curious if anyone here had experience playing electric bass for Bluegrass and specifically what equipment set ups they use. I have no history of playing music and only recently started to learn the bass as my room mate, a Bluegrass musician, has encouraged me to do so. We have a pretty large and talented BG community here but very few of the bassists play electric. Obviously the double/upright bass is the traditional instrument of choice. Unfortunately, they're painfully expensive. Several of the bass players recommended it'd be better for me to learn on an electric with frets as I'm starting from scratch with no concept of music theory and such. A few weeks into learning I can definitely see their point and I'm glad I picked it up. Right now I'm playing on a used P-bass I found on the ol' c-list running through a used Peavey Max126. A local bassist recommended placing rubber deadening in the bridge. I do have to admit it does give it a more upright tone, for sure. I'd be very curious to hear about equipment set ups talented guys use for bluegrass or even folk style music. Once again sorry if this is in the wrong forum! Thanks guys!
