    Out of the money you spend towards basses, amps, effects, etc., where does it go?

    Most of my money goes towards basses.

    id get all of them if i could GET some money in the first place
  3. I picked amps, because that is where most of my money has gone lately, but now a new bass might be coming soon.
  4. First to basses. Second to gas to get to the store.

    (almost) all of the above - basses, amps, strings,
    tubes. Don't feesh no more.
    I know damn well where it AIN'T goin' [​IMG]
  6. Amps currently. I think I have enough basses to get whatever sound I would want out of them. So now I'm experimenting with preamps and power amps. That has increased my sound quite a noticeable bit. Recording has really shown the difference!

    if I had any money to spend I'd probably spend it on fixing up my bass or even a new ride.

    i'm still in high school and a beginning bassist and so I only have one bass and amp so my money goes towards cables whihc I am always wrecking by mistake, a recent cool effects pedal, strings, etc.
  11. Basses, I think im ready for a second bass (maby a yamaha bb searies or a MIM fender). I also could see a bass wah in the near future

    well, i intended this poll to deal with bass related items, but oh, well. Who voted for accessories? How is that possible? Do you actually run through strings and stuff like that, that quickly?

    I've also noticed that i look for basses before amps when i go to the music store (even if i'm looking for an amp.)

    I try to put most of the money I make playing with my band, back into my band. Occasionally, some other pesky thing will come up that I need to spend my money on instead -- gasoline, car repairs, food, clothes, rent, etc. ;)
  14. CDs...I haven't gotten a bass or an amp for about a year.

    bass amps, wood, glue, screws, screens, speakers, tools, ... My cabs keep getting modified. Maybe I should quit playing bass and become a carpenter.

    I suppose only about 25% of the signal processing takes place in the bass. The rest is in the rig. What a sin to spend $1500 on a good bass and rely on a crappy amplifier and speakers. I learned this the hard way. I'm starting to gig more, and have realized a good amplifier is sooo important. I'm in the market and hunting for a semi-pro rig as we speak.

    Good luck finding a BB. Best bass I ever had.

    Am I the only member of this board that doesn't have GAS?

    No disrespect to anyone infatuated with gear, but I spend more time thinking about excelling on the equipment I do have, then getting new stuff.
