I’ve lived in Brooklyn for less than a month and I am trying to decide whether I need to purchase my own amp for jams/rehearsals, or if it makes more sense to simply rely on venues and rehearsal spaces to provide amplification? I play some jazz, but mostly funk and hip-hop. I plan to start a project playing six-string bass and acting as the “lead bass” of sorts. That may be an important detail! With that, if the consensus is that an amplifier will be essential out here, what are some recommendations for a light weight head that can fit in a sturdy gig bag? How about recommendations for a cabinet or combo that will fit on the subway? Thanks in advance for your feedback and advice!
