    Hi I have just bought a Fender Jazz Bass guitar and I want to learn to play jazzy styles. My problem is I have a home amp and it sounds awful. What is a good priced amp or a good secondhand alternative that will give me the proffesional sound I desire.

    an eg clip of the kind of sound I am after is this. http://www.uptownrecords.com/jorj.ram

    That is the type of music I am into Jazz/house

    Thanks

    Well EBS is a bit pricey, but to me its worth every penny! Victor Bailey, Marcus Miller, Stan Clarke and a few others use it...

    If you fill in your profile, it will also give us a clue as to what might be appropriate - there are hundreds (well almost...) of potential choices.:eek:

    I want something not too pricey. Maybe a good secondhand buy.

    I think you need to leave a bit more information, what gear you're using right now, there's a million and one different Fender jazzes out right now, whats your budget, and so forth. Please, help us help you :D

    I want something good but I dont really want to spend over £200. If I can get something good secondhand then that would be ideal.
     
  9. Try to find something that has at least one hundred watts and keep an eye on the brand name Peavey.
