When i started noodleing around with the idea of plaing bass i wasn't especially interested and so i bought a really cheap starter pack dealio and i've been jamming around on this little tiny combo amp that came with it. So i've been playing bass for about a year now...starting to get a little bit better and now i'm playing with a band occasionally, the little combo amp isn't loud enough and it's getting old anyways. I'm super into playing now and i want to upgrade so i can get louder with better sound. Now bear with me because i don't even know the terms for what i want. I think what i'm into getting is a half stack maybe? What all do i need? I think i need an amp and a cab but im not going to lie, i don't even know for sure what to look for. one thing for sure though i want to go past little combo amps...anyone care to point me in the right direction? I couldn't find newbie threads on this...partially because i didn't even know what to look for. thanks! B!
