Beginner Bassist

I was wondering what kind of bass\amp a pro\expirienced bassist would recomend for a beginner who has never played one before.

Re: Beginner Bassist

: I was wondering what kind of bass\amp a pro\expirienced bassist would recomend for a beginner who has never played one before.

If you get a good bass you can always use it. I would recommend a Fender style bass, sometimes you can find a good Mexican Fender Jazz if you look hard, app. $300
For an amp Fronyman 15 is great I use one for practice.
Very inexpensive $125.00. Just get something playable and Practice!!

pedals

I've been playing guitar for a couple years now and I want to get better at my soloing. I was wondering if there was a pedal out there that will play back something that I play so that I can solo to it? Is that what a danelectro cool cat chorus pedal is?

Re: pedals

nah for what u r lookin for get a chorum pedal

Re: pedals

Get a cheap multi tracker then you can work on making your own songs,playback over them or whetever you want. but if you want a pedal any old sampler will do.
I have an old DigTech 1002 that will make a 2 sec sample I can Jam over not that 2sec is good. but I love my Fostex "got it for $100"

Check out the Boss JS5 or the Boss DR5 & you will be able to solo until you butt falls off. They both cost around $400.

Help!

I recently got an early 60's Hofner "Flamenco" Spanish guitar, and was wondering how much it might be worth. It is in fair condition, and all original. Please e-mail if you have any info on this guitar. Thanks.

Re: Help! - no answer here :)

hi Matthew, I read your post and I am in the same situation... or nearly. someone is selling me one for about 70 pounds sterling. I was just trying to find out the value... the 'delux' model the vienna goes for around 200-250 i think, but I am still not sure how much a flamenco is worth. have you had any definite answers? let me know if you found out. By the way, so you enjoy playing the hofner, what do you think of it?

thanks Panos

Guitar effects processors vs Boss pedals

I'm in a quandry, whether to buy a digital effects processor or individual Boss pedals. The effects
processors cost less than say the five Boss pedals I have picked out but I don't want all the
bells and whistles that come with them.
I have a couple of Boss pedals now and I am happy with them. They are the analog CE2 chorus
and the RV3. I also have an MXR Phase 90 and
a Pro Co Vintage Rat.
Is their an effects processor out there that can do
what the pedals can, that sounds as good and doesn't have a hundred features that I may never
use? Any advice will be appreciated. I sort of like the processor idea... everything in a neat package.
I just need some experienced advice. Thanks!
John

Re: Guitar effects processors vs Boss pedals

Difficult one this. I have been down both roads and come out in the same place. If you are getting the sounds you like out of what you've got then the old saying "If it ain't broke don't fix it" But knowing that guitarists are always striving for "that sound" we will never be satisfied. Boss stuff is very good so unless you've got a lot of money to throw around I would stick with that. The Proco Rat is also superb and I have never been able to get that sound on a rack system.

Re: Guitar effects processors vs Boss pedals

I know this is old news but I just saw the question on a search for boss pedals. I have had two zooms the 505 and the GFX-707 and I really liked them especially the 707 with the effects/volume pedal. However, I found that I was only using about six different settings and did not need the other 54 settings. In addition the sound quality was not quite there for me, especially the distortions (they were digital). I know some of the boss multi effects have analog distortion and that would be better. I have sold the zooms and now use boss pedals. I have had many comments that my guitar work sounds better now. I know that I am not doing too much more musically, so I think the pedals are sounding better with my set-up than the zooms sounded. The only thing I might add is a cry baby wah. Good luck with you decision.

Re: Guitar effects processors vs Boss pedals

I went with the multi-effects over my Boss pedals only because ease of use. I don't have to connect several pedals together. More cords can = more noise. And I can program the exact sounds I want(and lots of them) for certain songs. I thought about selling my Boss pedals, but I'm going to keep them just in case my multi-effects unit breaks, gets dropped etc. Good luck

Wanted: Used Ibanez ATK300

Hi, I like slapping style playing. I was told that this ATK300 is very nice instrument. Does anyone want to sell? I hope to get one 'around' 300-350 bucks. The cheaper, the better but I will have only one bass so, I will invest.

help with fender sound

I have fender strat guitars, two fender 65 deluxe amps, but i can't seem to nail that fat fender sound, i'm looking for something like Kenny Wayne Shepherd /DaJaVoodoo, can anyone help?

: I have fender strat guitars, two fender 65 deluxe amps, but i can't seem to nail that fat fender sound, i'm looking for something like Kenny Wayne Shepherd /DaJaVoodoo, can anyone help?
Hello, I'm not sure if this will help any but, 1st I can't help much with the amp sound but most
of the blues cats used a heavy gauge string (starting with a 12 or 13 for the high E), This
is one reason most of these guys got that rich sound. Plus I believe most of the time they
played using the neck pickup. Sorry I can't help any further... Take Care
