Title: My Plan
Super Speler - December 1, 2007 10:42 PM (GMT)
For a few weeks now I've been a little depressed about something. No matter how much I practiced, or how many hours I spent studying, I couldn't get the sound out of my bass that I wanted. And it isn't me, the bass just isn't built for what I want to do. It doesn't have quite the tone or range I need.
Today, I went to the local music shop. I saw a six string bass, and picked it up. At first I just played some slap grooves, but I quickly found myself tapping. A few minutes later I hooked up an octave pedal. Soon, I realized that I had found the sound I'd been looking for all these years.
After 3 or 4 hours of sitting in the store I realized something, the bass was $600 and I just don't have that kind of money. However, I know of a decent one I saw online for $170 (my friend had bought the same one) and I think it'll (for now at least) do.
I think I've finally found it, the sound I've been searching for. I'm excited as hell and can't wait to spend days tapping my six string :).

great to hear, it sucks when you are unable to get the music to sound how you want. I myself had this happen even with unreal instruments when making music, and i kinda felt akward because i would have liked the song to sound the exact way i want

$600 for a bass!??!?!!
for me that would be like paying an arm and a leg for something :knight:

@MSR5 $600 really isnt that much for a bass. Most of the people here are in high school or college and just dont have that kind of money to spend though.
@ Super speeler, you could try finding an older used model of the one you liked in the store. I'm sure you could find something comprable. :)

how expensive can basses get?
art_of_camelot - December 2, 2007 09:10 PM (GMT)
More expensive ones can run from around $1200-$2000+
Super Speler - December 2, 2007 10:03 PM (GMT)
The one I normally use is $500 (I got it $120 used) and my amp is normally $600 (got it on sale for $200). I also use two of my dads speakers when needed, which give an extra 1000 Watts of sound.
Yeah, $600 isn't a lot for a bass, but it's more then I can currently spend.

think about people who have to buy musical instruments for band/orchestra. that's why some people rent. but really devoted people would buy and make their instrument their own, like a major part of them.
Super_Speler: ya i've had that kind of experience w/ violins. the difference between one and another can be extreme or nothing sometimes.
