Hey, I'm looking for a bass + amp for about $250. I'm mostly interested in jazz. I'm going to start playing double bass, but until my school rents one out to me my teacher said to start on an electric bass. He said i would be able to find one around this price, but Ive looked and I'm pretty lost. Is it cheaper to buy the bass and amp separately? Do I even need an amp if I'm just going to be playing in my room? What kinds of basses and amps should/could i get for around this total price?
