Default Hi! From Vienna, Austria

Well, finally I got around to do what I always wanted to do, which is playing the bass. To be exact, a Warwick Rockbass Corvette Premium 5-String.

Doesn't sound like much but I've been playing the piano since I was 5 years old and the keys for about 25 years now - go figure.

I'm 41 now, so I decided it's time to change some things in my life, starting with living one or another dream.

So I got a pretty neat bass guitar now, a pretty fast quadcore hackintosh, a RME soundcard, decent monitors, about 2 TB VSTs - and no bass amp.

I HATE being gangleaded by manufacturers so I decided to go the DIY way, n00b style.

Well - as for power amping I'll have it the PA power amp & DIY cabinet way. It's the cost saving way and it allows me to accidentially destroy something and be able to replace it without going broke.

BUT regarding preamping - I want to go the long way. And I got pretty exact ideas - I only lack in the clue department. So I sincerely hope you guys have mercy

Keep it up!

We're having lots of fun in the musical instrument thread, and there are preamp ideas on the analog line level thread too. It is amazing how much more expensive a packaged bass cabinet is than 4 each 15" speakers plus a piece of plywood and a capacitor and some terminals. Have fun. I'm going the other way- bought a Hammond organ with 25 pedals, string bass feature, and one 15" 40 W woofer. I'm learning to play famous bass lines with my feet like John Paul Jones. No slide bottle effects, but with seventy new capacitors installed I can rattle the windows and lamps on "inna Godda Divida".
