Warning: Heavy Reading Ahead Hi guys, I'm looking to get an amp for practice/small gig (loud enough to play with a drummer). So here's my (rather tricky) situation. I have 2 options. 1. a pre-owned Fender FrontMan 212R for $300~ 2. a brand new Fender Bronco 40 for $440 Now, the thing is, the FrontMan is not a bass amp, but is probably a better choice (possibly louder). My cousin is willing to give me the FrontMan for free, but he lives in Sydney and I live in Brisbane. Shipping it to my place will be very costly, seeing as it weighs a tonne. I can get a local guitar shop to order in a new Bronco 40 for 440 (remember this is Australian dollars where everything is taxed hugely). So, can someone tell me a few things; 1. Which amp is better for my style? I like having effects (like envelope filter and I'd prefer not to buy a pedal), and I'm going to play with another guitarist and a drummer. 2. Will an amp designed for a guitar be loud enough/work with a bass?
