Well after many years of not playing ( about 15 years), I am finally trying to get back into it. When I got out of it I sold what gear I had so I have to start over again. I bought a Peavy Millennium BXP 5-string as the last bass I bought was a 5-string and I always told myself if I played again it would be 5-string. I am using an old 30 watt Gorilla amp that was still laying around that my brother used to use for his Keyboard. I was kinda "convinced" to get back into it as my fiancee's brother plays guitar and bass and her uncle plays drums. Of course i will need to get a better amp to play with them but her brother has a messa boogie head that I can use, sorta, lol. If possible I will probably end up finding a Yorkville xm 200T amp or Yorkville head. I had a yorkville amp in my old setup and liked it, plus they are reasonably priced used.
