Hello to all of the wise bass players of this site: I am going to try and get some decent amplification within the next week and i was wondering if anyone could help me determine what to shoot for. Ive never purchased amplification equipment so im not sure where to start. And im sure all of you know that not having good amplification really shuts down the whole playing with other people thing, which is what i want to do. First of all, i need to know just what kind of amplification i'll need. Now i know i don't need 2000 watts and 50 10" speakers to drive it, but i dont really have a good idea about what kinda of wattage and speaker powering i will need for my situation. I want to be able to play loud rock music with a full band (including drums). If theres anything else you'd need to know to help me determine, just ask. I could really use some guidance in this area.
