The bass: Schecter Omen 5 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...79/g=bass/s=amps/search/detail/base_id/106335 Here's the amp: Behringer Ultrabass BX600 Combo http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7.../g=bass/s=amps/search/detail/base_pid/480678/ I also already have the older version of one of these: Zoom 708 Bass Effects Pedal http://www.music123.com/Zoom-708II-Multi-Effects-Bass-Pedal-i72052.music I currently have a Rogue 5-string POS along with a Rogue 50W amp, both of which are POSs in my opinion. I'm looking to spend around $700-$800 on buying new equipment. If I were to sell/trade any of it, I think the only thing that might get me anything in return is the pedal. I kinda like the pedal, though. So, will this be a decent setup? Perhaps should I ditch the Zoom 708 for separate individual pedals? Could I do better on the bass with a similar price? Is the amp a POS as well? I'm mostly looking for something decent to practice with and *maybe* eventually play with others. I play lots of metal music, if that makes any difference at all.
