Do you put a higher priority on your bass or your rig? I am a beginning bass player, but really getting into it! I don't know if I should make a deeper investment into the bass guitar or a broader investment in a rig. I have an Ibanez SR706 now and play through a Yamaha Powered Speaker 8" MSR 100 and/or a mixer and headphones. I am mostly practicing and dont see myself playing any gigs any time soon, but am GASing for a higher end bass. I suppose my priority is developing my musicianship, rather than impressing folks with volume.
