Ive been playing bass for about a year and a half and am ready to try and audition or form a band. Ive been on the dark side "guitarist" for around 20 years, but have come over to bass and have recently learned my theory. Just a tonal choice really.My birthday is the 29th and Ill have a bit of cash...and I also have a lot of guitar gear to sell or trade for bass gear. Id like to keep it around from say 400-800 bucks.... I play a Fender Hwy one Jazz, Funk/jazz and jam type stuff. The Acoustic amp stuff has me interested, but doesn't seem to be in the wattage range ill need.. I'm going in the direction of a large band scene, like an 8 or more piece, with horns and backup singers..so ill need some volume... I also don't know crap about bass amps,if I should go rack, need a comp, and so on. Any help or recommendations beyond "use the search function" would be greatly appreciated.... please be kind, I'm green I would also prefer to go used..so in my range, used, for the sound I want and power I need.
