Complaining huh :lol:. Nah guitar isn't needed. It's an advantage but not necessary. As you already play an instrument and understand the fundamentals of music then you have a head start.

For me it's the Jazz but I haven't tried enough different 'quality' passive basses to say. I've heard great things about the Gibson Firebird... (I think that's the name)... possibly big $ though and it sounds like money is your limitation. If you do happen to buy a good bass, at least the value won'...

Passive or Active?

I've been playing active basses for most of my playing life. Biggest problem has always been having to change batteries at the worst moment. I'm interested in how many out there prefer passive or active and for what reason?

hi ya pieboy :) When buying a learners bass I recon getting a good straight neck and low string action is important. Both things have a big influence on how easy it is to play.

Use a compressor / limiter for playing slap?

I kinda feel it's cheating a bit. But it can get a bit scary on the levels sometimes if I slap a string too hard.

What's your rig?

Gallen Kruger RB 400 with 410T Quad 10" box. Enough punch for small venues. Good sound. Bigger model amp would be better of course. This one is only 120watts into 8ohms.
