    Hi! New bass player here. Played guitar for 25 years and just wanted to learn something new. Playing the bass has been fun, getting a bass rig is not so much fun. Getting new gear is supposed to be fun but since I dont know much about bass amps its been rather stressfull.

    Looking up reveiws on heads kept bringing me here so I thought I would join up.

    Started with an Ampeg PF500. Sounded great but just didnt have that "punch" and is not rack mountable so I took it back and got a Mark Bass F1. Deffinatly has that "punch" and I will see if I can get a sound I like at practice. If im not likeing it, I think my next step will be a GK MB2 500.

    I picked up a set of Hartke aluminum cone cabs. A 2 10 and a 15 rated at 200 watts and 8 ohms. For a bass I got an Ibanez SR300. Great bass for the price but im thinking I will be upgrading before long. Not sure if I like active pickups in basses.

    Allways open to advice!
