Good day all, I have yet to leave the bedroom with my bass playing, but what I do is to play along to favorite songs on mp3 as well as instructional cd's/dvd's. My dilemma at this point is I have cheap equipment and as my ears become more discerning, I am finding it less and less tolerable. Let me describe me current system. It's quite ghetto, primitive actually. I have a small ampeg BA 108 connected to my computer which I listen to through headphones 100% of the time when practicing. The headphones are/were pretty decent Sennehiser's (can't think of the model number). Now they just sound all fuzzy. This was fine for awhile, but as I get into learning more intricate and challenging songs, the tone is becoming less and less acceptable, almost untolerable. Any recommendations on gear to get to improve all of this would be most greatly appreciated. Just for practicing at home, not playing out. Thanks so much!
