i only started playing last summer, and i bought second-hand a Silvertone 4-string bass and amp. its the bass that comes with their starter package thing. the amp has High-mid, Low-mid, High, and Low adjustments and the bass has volume and tone. needless to say, not an impressive setup, but i cant afford anything else right now and it was great to start with. what can i do to get the most out of this setup? thanks.
