Hey guys my name is Matt and I'm 16 years old. As you can probably see I am a new member here. I started to play the bass a little while ago (influenced by Nirvana), and have so far been just using my dads equipment, but would like to purchase some of my own now. I really want to get a sound like Krist Novoselic from Nirvana. Here are some clips of what I think it would be cool to sound like: you get the idea... that "bung bung bong" sound. The equipment I am using right now is the following: fender american P-bass. Ernie Ball Slinky strings (I think). med-heavy pick. no effects pedals. fender 75 watt rumble amp. So, as I am still a newbie to bass playing, could anyone tell me what equipment I should get, or if any of it is fine already? I have quite a bit of money saved up finally and am ready to purchase some stuff. The only thing I know that Krist used in his nirvana days was a gibson thunderbird bass for sure, and they look pretty cool, so I guess I could get one of those. Sorry if I posted in the wrong thread, feel free to move it if you want. Thanks, Matt.
