I’ve already talked about it here (GREAT GEAR - mediocre player) and mentioned in other posts that I actually just have borrowed my bass. I like playing on it and think it is overall a good enough bass.
I borrowed the bass from my father. It was a birthday gift from his wife and me to him. With our upcoming birthdays (august, september) I have planned to return the bass together with some kind of self made coupon for bass lessons with me.
Of course I don’t want to stand there without a bass afterwards and also it probably would be easier if we both have a bass for the lessons.
So off to buy a new bass!
Like with every purchase I start with a budget. 300-900€
Allright let’s have a look of what I can get in the music store in cologne. Set up the price range. The only thing where I have a tendency is that I seem to like passive basses more. I did not have a chance to compare directly but from what I’ve seen/heard I would prefer a passive one overall. Okay. Price range and passive as filters for the search. Go: 235 Articles
Question/Asking for help
So here I am now.
I know I want a passive bass and have a budget. Where to go from here?
I plan on going to the store either thursday or friday to get some basses in my hands but I would still like to have it narrowed down a little more.
Any suggestion of what I might check out for information or personal opinions that might help me narrow it down?
Of course I’ve watched the gear video about basses. Still… In my mind I would go one step up in budget. Or hey… maybe tell me it’s not worth because quality doesn’t improve that much in the budget range and I should stick to the ones in the video.
