    HI, Im seriously thinking about switching from drums to bass, I dont know anything about it and I estamate that I could have up to and including $1700 for a bass. My brother has a Eden half stack, so i just need a bass, do yall have any recomendations? Also I was told that bass can get boring because of the constant repeating riffs, is there any way to avoid this without taking over the song? Thanks.

    My first "pretty good" bass was about $450 Godin SD-1. later I bought a used G&L SB-1 for $600 even though later I thought I paid too much. my first guitar was a joke fender/squire pbass special $200. pickups were too dark and boring sounding and the bridge pickup buzzed like a son of a gun!

    I agree with wrong robot, play a bunch of basses at the store. take your brother with you if he knows much about good and bad bass attributes. maybe he has an extra bass you can learn on??
