Alright - I need some advice ... I am new to playing the bass. I need some suggestions as to what would be a wise investment as far as amps/combos/cabs etc ... I can't spend THAT much money, but I would like something that I could eventually play with a band or something. Also something that I could practice with at home. I don't want to get something and in a year find that it is worthless. I am all for spending some money up front and getting something worth while. I have checked out the boards on ebay and see a lot of stuff. I also checked out some stuff here, and most of it is comparing one ??? to another ??? and I don't know what ??? is in the first place. So some simple advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance ... K.
