I have recently switched over from playing Rhythm Guitar to Bass.
I have been a metalhead for many, many years-- I recently have been working with a Classic Rock/High-Energy Modern Blues/Rock band.
Originally, I planned to only be with them for a short time since they had a regular and busy gig schedule.
Well-- 2 years later, and here I am......... Long story short, We all leave our gig equipment at the rehersal space. The bass player didn't show up for 3 straight practices-- and his bass gear was there.
I had never played Bass Before-- and honestly I just strapped it on as a goof.-- It wasnt half bad!
I played with a pick, since guitar was what I was used to, but it felt right.
Since then, we lost the Bass Player-- and now i have been voted up to take over.
The new rhythm guitarist/vocalist is working out great, and it looks like ill be on Bass duties..
I have a cheap Washburn Bass from the mid- 80s. And I am "SansAmping" DI to the PA mixer.
I have a small Wedge monitor, but its full band-- and it is difficult to hear myself sometimes.
MY QUESTION IS-- I found a Peavey T40 in a local music store for $350. Natural Finish.
The guy says its from 1980. Hes asking $500-- and it is in PRISTINE MINT contition..
Its a little heavey, but really well balanced... Sounds excellent, and feels great in my hand.
Whats your thoughts on the Peavey T40?
