I'm thinking about buying this, any opinions? It's gonna be my first amp, and I'm trying to get one loud enough for a garage band and small gigs. Think this'll do? I'm tight for cash. I've only got about $500, and I also want to get a distortion or an overdrive pedal. Also, I want to try to get the Big Black bass tone, but I think I'd really need an overdrive or distortion (not sure which Big Black used). Or the Steve Albini/Bob Weston/Shellac tone, anyone know something around $500 that would kind of produce anything similar to either of those?
