Gifts for Bassists
So what exactly should you get? To make your decision easier, it never hurts to consider the needs of the person you are buying for. For example, how old are they? Do they have very specific music tastes? Obviously if you're buying for a youngster who has never played before, your best bet is to simply go with a company that's known for their quality and playability. For that, a great choice would be the Fender Affinity Precision Bass Pack. Consisting of a Squier Affinity Series Precision Bass, a Fender Rumble 15 Combo bass amp, a bass strap, a cable, a gig bag and a pick sampler, this all-in-one starter pack is perfect for any enthusiastic low-end groover.
Of course, this catalog also has many stunning amps and basses for more experienced players, such as the Ibanez SR505 5-String electric bass guitar. Sleek, mean and versatile, this bass is equipped with Bartolini MK1 pickups and 3-band EQ to deliver a world-class tone, and the mahogany body offers sweet sustain and warm lows. In the amp department, you can't go wrong with the Fender Rumble V3 500W 2x10 bass combo amp. Ideal for rehearsals and stage use, this amp delivers a huge, booming low end with no loss in clarity, and would make any bass player smile with delight on Christmas morning.
One of the best things about having a musician in the family is that they're really easy to buy for during the holiday season, and this includes bass players. Today's line of bass models, amps and accessories is far-reaching and constantly growing. Of course, this is just music to the ears of bass players during the holiday season.
