I'm about to buy my first bass, but I've been playing friends basses for a long time and love basses. I've been hearing a lot how bassists usually go straight through the PA system during gigs instead of an amp.
Now, I am also a singer, and will need to get a PA system for that anyways (also a mic), but my money is pretty tight, so I was wondering:
Do I need to get a bass amp at all? Or can I just roll with a PA system for now?
