Need some help from all of you bass players out there!

Is anyone familiar with Tanglewood's basses and Torque's Amps? Are those any good for a "rookie" player?

I've been offered a bass (Tanglewood's Rebel) and amplifier (Torque's 100BX). Both are about 5 years old, but looked ok in pictures. I haven't had a chance to test them yet, but I'd like to hear comments from people who are familiar with those trademarks. Thanks!

I've actually never heard of that bass guitar manu and only vaguely that bass amp one unfortunately. You might post something at www.talkbass.com as it is a great forum for all things bass. Did a quick search but didn't find anything immediately.

On a bass gear note I'm really close to pulling a trigger on the bass podxt pro....

Hi Tomppav, if you are just starting out just be sure that everything works ok. You don't want the strings too high off the fretboard...and you don't the instrument going out of tune.

I'm not familiar with that brand but there are a zillion entry level brands. Some are fine and some break into pieces. Here in the States, the beginner guitars at Target (like a Wal-Mart) are fairly solid and cheap.

Good luck...bass is awesome.

If they're too high...when you're not playing it...buy some arrows and take it hunting.

Finally moved back into a house, so I have been able to set all my gear back up. That includes a drum set that I acquired but haven't really played. After almost 10 years of playing guitar, I forgot how frustrating it is to suck.

Sorry for bumping this thread, but for some reason it came to mind...probably because I'm on this board way too much.

I'm continuing my bass player semi-retirement status. Longest break between bands since I was 16.

My only guitar right now is a Ibanez RG370dx. Bought if off eBay a couple years ago, and it's mostly collected dust. Really wanted the Floyd Rose at the time, but I quickly realized how much of a pain in the ass it is and I've barely played guitar since. Should probably sell it and pick up something cheaper with a fixed bridge. I do kinda like the H-S-H pick-ups. Fun to be able to get both the humbucker and single coil sound out of the same guitar.

I haven't played in a band in a good while. I really want to, but its hard to find time between two jobs and two hockey teams. I definitely miss it.

How do you like those? I was considering new hihats and am open for suggestions.

I like the sound, but I find myself wishing I would've went with the 14". I think they would probably sound even better, and the extra inch makes playing easier.

Or maybe they don't make those in 14"? I can't remember because it's been so long since I purchased them.

Chiming in on the starter bass. Don't buy something at Target. You'll hate it and you will quit. Grab a Fender Squire Jazzman. $200.

...actually Target may sell them for all I know. Just don't buy an off brand instrument. That's my vote.

Consider buying used gear too. So many people buy $500+ instruments and then never get around to learning how to play then eventually sell. Tons of deals out there. If you can, bring a muscian along with you you wil be better off.

oh and... is there any such thing as an acoustic bass that isn't terrible? want to get a bass (to fiddle with around the house) but don't want to deal with amps and will never go anywhere with it. never really paid much attention to an unplugged electric, but i'd imagine it's not really loud enough to enjoy without an amp.

i've got ancient new beats. i haven't found anything more versatile yet. you can probably pick them up used for next to nothing. if i ever break them, i'm f'd, as i won't know where to turn. i have, however, consider 13" hats--if i ever went the remote route, that's what i'd do.

while i'm at it, hell, i'll play along.

custom maple 6 piece from a guy near me who builds them:
12/13/14/16 (two racks, two floors)/22, 5x14 snare
14 new beat hats (probably late 70s/early 80s vintage, i guess)
18 old zil crash (a, maybe?)
10 zil a splash
15 zil a custom crash
22 zil ping ride
18 sabian paragon crash
14 wuhan china (i think it's a 14. it's small--replaced a sabian 18 aa fast china what broke)
dw 5000 double
hodge-podge of old pearl, tama, dw hardware.

also got a roland electric v drum kit recently (kids sleep better when i play that one right underneath their bedrooms at night)--threw my old yamamaha double on it--still faster than the dw, methinks.
