Been lurking for a while and made a few purchases off the forum so thought it was about time to formally say hello.
Promised myself I'd learn guitar this year but that didn't happen for various reasons and then randomly got into watching bass videos on Youtube.
Came across a lovely Fender Pro Jazz Bass on here at too good a price to ignore so bought that. Gave my old guitar away (on here). Signed up for bass lessons. Purchased a Sire U5 (on here). Bought some Waza Air headphones. Sold Waza Air headphones. Bought a Blackstar Unity 250 combo. Returned Blackstar combo. Bought a PJB Cub. Bought a Trace Elliot Elf head. Bought a Trace Elliot 2x8 cab (on here) to match the head. Sold the Cub.
Is probably evident I don't really know what I want and covid hasn't helped. I now have a jazz bass and short scale PJ with a small-ish amp/cab setup that I think is pretty much spot on for my current needs.
Started to explore pedals and effects and was considering a Helix HX Stomp but think that will be complete overkill for my current needs. I've ended up with a Trace Elliot Transit B preamp and Zoom B1 Four for Christmas but have yet to open and try.
Also having major GAS for a precision, something MIJ, something Yamaha, something stingray or a mustang - but I should really learn to actually play rather than buy another bass!
Fairly eclectic in musical taste but looking at playing mainly funk, disco, pop (gasp) with some slightly heavier stuff such as RHCP and RATM. Currently failing to learn to slap with any consistency.
Thanks to all the people I've made purchases from and bothered in PMs for info!
