New Bass Guitar and Amp

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by monkeylover009, Aug 16, 2004.


  1. Hi Everyone!
    Ive been playing bass for close to 2 years but as ive come to play more challenging stuff i find how badly my bass and amp are at giving me the sound i want!

    I play a lot of Metallica so a cliff burton sound would be ideal but i also play some Primus (what i can!), System Of a Down and Slayer.
    Im basically looking for a good 4 String bass to give me a sort of heavy cliff burton sound costing anything up too £400 and an amp up to £150.
    Has anyone got any suggestions for me?

    ps.anyone know what type of strings cliff burton used?

    Thanks For Any Help!
