I don't anchor my thumb at all. I used to keep my thumb on the neck pickup for the first two years of playing and that worked fine, but since then it's started to restrict my playing a bit. I just...

Just a suggestion here. A Washburn T14 4 string bass new. It's around 130-140 quid as far as I know. With the remaining cash you should be able to get a decent practise amp from eBay or more likely...

I do it. It obviously would depend on each cab and their characteristics, but there's a hell of a lot of potential in there to be tapped! I've found that P.A cabs are really good for players who love...

I am partially with Sliide on this one. I run a 1500 watt amp into 2 15" PA cabs (yeah this totally goes against what most people think is right) and the cabs are rated at 150 watts each. That means...

I believe the general rule is that you should have a load on the amp if it is an all valve model, which seems to be the case for you.

For solid state heads this is not an issue.

Valve/tube amps are...

You can use headphones and the amp will be fine, but it will sound pretty crap. Mind you tone is always subjective so you might like it!

I feel that the materials used for making bass guitars are NOT important, when considered by themselves, which I agree seems to be a marketing ploy.

Nope! You could stick it with an 8x10 fridge if you had one, as long as the ohms match up.
I think it reads 8 ohms on the back of your amp, so you can literally use any sized cab which has an...

Yeah just make sure that you use a speaker cable between the amp and cab, not an instrument cable. Bad things happen if you use an instrument cable to link amps and cabs.

24 frets, so smaller spacing and the neck profile made it very easy for me when I started out on bass.
