Hey!

My friend is getting into bass and i really want to help him doing so.

He is most likely going to buy a used Yamaha RBX170. (I think it looks ok).

Now.. I know absolutely nothing about bass so i was hoping that you would help getting a new bass player on the way.

So i was just wondering how the quality of the Yamaha is and how it compares to other entry level basses?

He is mostly into metal for pointers.. :b

And! We also need an amp! xD OFC..

Something loud enough for him to be able to play with a drummer and still be heard :P

The budget for the amp is gonna be $320 dollars.. (Hope that is even possible).

Another pointer, we live in Denmark ((Scandinavia.. (Europe xD ))

Thanks in advance for your help!

I had one of those, it was a pleasure to play that bass.
I also had the same budget for the amp and got a Warwick Take 12, which I still use. Just remember to use the foot on the back of the amp to make it lean backwards, otherwise you won't get any punch just some low end crap.. I hated the amp until I noticed how good it was when leaned backwards.

What's the budget in euros (Denmark uses the Euro, right?)

It's much better to provide your budget in your native currency, as price changes hugely between countries, partially down to factors indepdndant from exchange rates.



Denmark uses "Danish Crowns" xD but i can give you a number en euros as well.. xD

Thats 230 euro :b

No, avoid Behringer like the plague. A used Peavey amp should suit you well.

Nothing new in that price class that is suitable for metal?

Any other brands to look for when searching for used, and best, any models in particular? Really lost here, please help! :b
