Hello from Down Under!

  1. Hi everybody!

    I've been a part-time lurker on these forums over the last while and finally thought I'd join. A little about me: I'm living in Brisbane, Australia and was getting bass lessons for 5 years all through high school. The lessons stopped back in 2002, and apart from the very occasional fiddle with the bass, I didn't really play much thanks to university and work commitments. In the last 6 months, however, I have picked up playing again and so I thought I'd start mingling with other bassists to get a bit of knowledge into me!

    I'm currently playing a Washburn XB400 that I bought back in 1999. Love it to bits, but mostly for sentimental reasons (in the same way that you love your first car I guess). I used to own a 450 watt Peavey head+cabinet for stage use, but due to not playing much, I sold it a couple of years ago. Now I'm stuck with my old 75-watt practice amp. So gear-wise, I'm pretty much starting from scratch again!

    Anyway, hello to you all and I look forward to learning a lot and hopefully making a positive contribution to this community!
