Aight - so when it comes to basses there's a few brands that I'd recommend:

- typically, anything passive by Ibanez in lower ranges is solid, also Squier Vintage Modified basses are a good choice. Check for sharp edges on the fretwork before buying a cheaper bass anyway, and usually a good advice: get a proper set-up.
- want to spend a bit more? Get a Sire Marcus Miller V7 jazz. Only heard good stuff about them (get a good set-up and you're good for life unless you become an absolute pro)

Amp wise, Ashdown is great in the cheaper segment, or finding a Trace Elliot second hand. For practising alone, Vox has great amp plugs, or a bass multi fx with headphone out will do too. Guitar amps can work, but don't boost the lower ranges.
