I don't remember my old name here (may have been JRX or JungleroomX or somesuch thing) but I used to frequent the halls of this gilded forum way back. I doubt if anyone from that time period remembers my old ass but I'm back and for good reason:
After a 6 year stint in the Army I'm getting the medical boot due to my back and shoulder... so I've taken it upon myself to get myself back in the bass world. I have absolutely zero interest in being in a band or playing live music, what with three kids and a wife and I'm about to enter college to finish my degree, but the bass itself is a part of me down to my deepest roots. I've given up the stupid rockstar dreams but I will never ever give up my rumble box again.
I went 8 years without a bass. Never again.
So I got myself a mid-ranged Ovation acoustic bass just recently. It's decent, it's something I jam along with my CD player or laptop as I put my toes back in the water, but I'm eyeballing something else right now. I used to have an Ibanez 6 stringer and a Spector 5 stringer Legendary series (korean), and while I'll probably never use a 6 I've been seriously considering getting another Spector 5. It's not its American built cousins, for sure, but damn it was a hell of a bass for the money.
So I'm good on basses, but I am completely lost on an amp. Or, more specificially, something like a Line 6 POD where I can plug in a CD player or MP3 player, a set of headphones, and just jam without worrying about noise... but I've been out of the game so long that not only do I not know what does it, I'm not even sure WHERE to start looking TBH.
Any help for this old fogie would be appreciated!
