hey all! VERY new to bass. iv'e been playing guitar for about 11 years. tried flamenco, folk, and metal. just started getting into FUNK , p-funk, and primus(cant beleive that les!) i hope to be good enough for next year. im startin up a funk band. i want to be able to do the crazy stuff that les does. will i get the same sound from slapping with a mexican fretless standard fender? AND ive heard different things about a comb amp and gettin a small rig. the amp will heat up after 4-5 hrs of playing and a chance of bustin it? and something about using a sonic compressor or something to make a cleaner sound?
