Hey, I'm new to bass playing, though I have been playing the guitar for about a year and a half. I've picked up a bunch of little tips from bassists I've jammed with, and I know the basics of playing bass. Recently, I got recording software, and I've been recording my own stuff with my guitar and drum loops. But I still need a bass in it to fill out the sound nicely.

My question is, what do you think would be a good bass for a beginner to record with? I doubt I'll be playing a gig as a bassist anytime soon, so it'll only be for recording. And with that, how about an amp that would sound good?

Thanks

Try a fender starter package? They're cheap, alright basses and a tiny amp for you to use. It sounds like that's all you need.

try a cort my sister got one and sounds fairly good for the price, it came with an active pickup but you can use it without the battery cause it has a passive with it and in your case you wouldnt use it sh#t loads. whats your price range?

Cort def, especially for playability, try the action, better then any squire and more then gig worthy for the future. Pickups are the only semi good things bout them so you'd be set

At this point, I have a max of maybe $500 US for both the bass and amp. But I'll definitely look into the Cort, thanks!
