    Hi all,
    I am planning to start playing bass and so need to find a good beginner bass and amp. The advise given on this forum is consistently 'buy used'. However I have struggled to find good places to buy used gear, ideally online. I am from Ireland, and so the gear must come from Europe to avoid taxes and such nonsense. Preferably I would have it shipped to me.
    Another issue is that most gear that I find is far above my budget. What tips do you have to find gear that is affordable used? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    If your budget is low, your best bet is to find whatever version of a local craigslist you have, as shipping even an inexpensive bass can be costly.

    And join the basschat forum. Just like this page, the bc'ers sell lots of great gear 'over there'.

  4. This is true. I often check out the BassChat forum classifieds as well.
