Thanks for reading this longish post!! I know it shouldn't matter, but branding is kind of important to me. It helps me understand what is appropriate for genres and styles, etc (like guitar amps, vox ac for British Invasion, fender for blues, marshall for hard rock, not fast rules, but you know what I mean...) I am a fine player, but new to being a proper bassist. So I'm lost in the bass world... Im a classical cellist most years... This year, I am the bass player for a forming band playing roots, Motown, disco, soul music. P bass with flats. I was looking for an ampeg 115 but couldn't afford pf350/115 so was looking at the combo, or the fender rumble 200 (which I can't find to try) and stumbled on a used Ashdown Electric Blue 180 (115) for $300. I ended up buying it today, but the band doesn't start until a month from now. Did I make a good choice? What kind of brand is Ashdown, and was this a decent choice? Where will I find fault and reason to upgrade in the future? I hope to find work playing anything from British Invasion to country and Motown. Thanks for any wisdom you can provide!
