After christmas im looking to take up bass. i won't have too much money to spend (£200 max) so i am looking to probably get one of the starter kits that have the bass and an amp etc. could i please have some advance on what kit to get. if not, could you suggest any good cheap basses or amps. thanks in advance

£200 is very tight, would be a good budget for a bass alone. perhaps i starter pack would be best bet, unless you could get up to 300 where you could start gettin rly good gear

i know its a tight budget but im only 14 and my parents wont fund it because i already have two amps and two guitars even though i paid for one of each

I would either go for one of the Squier or Ibanez starter packs. Both containt solid beginner basses and decently little practice amps.

Avoid Epiphone. AVOID!

Stagg's have a pretty good body wood (my Stagg has a nice cut of alder for the body, but everything else is slowly being replaced.) Good luck getting an Acoustic amp in the UK- I haven't seen any myself. Check the FAQ for cheap but good amps and basses.

yeah, my stagg had nice body wood, but mine started to fall apart, and i never did get rid of the fret buzz. luckily it aint my problem anymore
