If I buy a Dean Playmate Cutaway, would I need to buy a new amp?

Thanks in advance

Don't ever post here again Dante. You're not funny.

As far as I know you won't need a new amp. I've never even seen an Acoustic Bass amp before. A regular amp should work fine.

-Peavey T-40 (1982)
-Hartke HA-3500
-Aguilar GS 2x12

You won't need a new amp, unless of course your current amp sucks to begin with.

I would advise against buying an acoustic bass, though. What's your reason for wanting one?

You joined nearly a year ago, and just decided to start your run of idiocy now? Were you waiting for the perfect timing, or were you just dropped on your head recently?

^ My bad, missed that part. There's no real reason to buy an ABG even for acoustic sets. You have to plug in to be heard anyway (unless you have a Tacoma), and it ends up sounding like an electric anyway.

Fair enough. I still say stick with an electric, but it's your call.

If there is any misunderstanding. I already own an electric. And plan on buying another pretty soon. That's why the acoustic I picked out was so cheap So yeah...

Lol I gathered you already had an electric. I say go for it, it'll do you fine for what you need, and it's cheaper than a Vegas escort (and you get it for more than a night), so go nuts.

Agreed...you should be alright with the amp you have, as long as its a decent amp. Usually, acoustic basses come with a preamp, which you can use to help shape your sound beyond any sort of parameter you need from an amp, as bass amps are really just a direct-box to a speaker...in the barest terms, that is.

You will need to plug in to be heard, because to my knowledge, no other acoustic bass can really be heard except for a Tacoma, which by my personal experience, is the acoustic form of awesome.
