I've been playing bass for a couple of months now and I think that this is the instrument that i want to stick with. I have an ibanez gsr200 bass n a peavey 20 watt amp. I realize that thats a little pathetic but its what i started out with. I was playing at my friends house and he has a lot more equipment so i was using his amp but i want to get my own. I just need to know about power amps and pre amps and stuff. I have a pretty good idea about how all that type of stuff works but it would be nice to get some advice from more experienced players. if you have any advice or information to give me i'd appreciate it.
