    Mark ,
    Superior training. I have a question? I have purchased a Dean (Acoustic /Electric bass), watching utube video a presenter recommended a pre ammp because of a pizeo pickup so it wouldn’t sound tinny as it would if you just used a regular amp.

    Could you recommend a a inexpensive practice amp that integrated a preamp in its amplifier. please forward your reply to my email

    Mark, thank you so much for you valuable bass lessons, bless you for helping those who can’t really afford music lessons but want to learn to play. Finally unzipped the blues and chord lessons. This is clearing up a lot for me on how to get into different groves. Bless you in what you do. Thanx a lot. Peace!!
