Hello bassists. . . been playing guitar for 25 years and decided it would be nice to be able to play bass periodically to add a mix to my skills. Bought a cheap, used Ovation Celebrity 5-string acoustic/electric bass I ran across (34 inch neck, not 35). Would like to pick up an inexpensive, used small practice amp that could be used periodically to jam with others. Not talking doing hall gigs or anything, just an easily portable small amp that can fill a fairly small room and quality sound. Suggestions greatly appreciated. While I'm at it, a stupid question from a guitarists point of view. . . why on a 5 string bass is the tuning BEADG and not EADGB? Just to add the extra bottom I assume, but any reason I can't used the EADGB instead of BEADG to translate more of my knowledge from guitar over?
