  1. Hi everybody. I've been playing bass for 8 months but I just joined this forum. I have a band and we play Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aerosmith, that kind of stuff.
    I'm 15 and I didn't have a lot of money so I bought this bass starter-pack for 200 €:

    SX SJB-62 (copy of a Fender Jazz Bass)
    SX BA-1565 (15W amplifier) which i only use to practice with my band, but in concerts I use the 400W Crater school's amp.
    Belcat Tuner
    Strap, gig bag, cable, and all that other stuff.

    Do you think this was a good deal?

    Sounds cool to me. I think a Jazz Bass style instrument is a great choice. IMO/IME the 15 watt amp will be fine for practicing at home, but it may not have enough volume for practicing with your friends. Be careful not to push it too hard. I think if your friends can keep their volumes at a low level, I'll probably be o.k. until you can afford a combo amp with a bit more power.

    Welcome to TB and have fun with your new setup.

  3. OK thx. In the band we all use 15W amps and we think it's alright for now (i don't push it too hard, i usually keep it at half the volume) so until i get more money i think i'm gonna keep it.

    Lol the setup isn't new, I bought it 8 months ago but i just joined this forum.
