EQUIPMENT

Cheap and dirty
Bass:
-Says "Fiesta" on the headstock (Cheapest bass I could find on Kijiji)
Amps:
-Peavey 20 Watt MicroBass Amp (Cheapest amp I could find on Kijiji)
-Ampeg 75 Watt BA-112 Amp (Bought used off a friend)
Pedals:

Would like to get better gear someday when I have money but it works and I still have fun playing so it does the job.
