Hi i've been playing bass for only a year and a half but started with alot of music theory and experience and right now im in a band with some people from around my area and all of a sudden weve been getting alot better and getting alot more gig invitations that are coming up. My rumble isnt going to do it especially since its only 100 watts with a 15" and our guitarist has a 65 watt crate which despite how poor quality it is, its very loud. I've got a birthday coming up and i want to sell my rumble and buy a half/full stack if possible on ebay with that cash and some band money and parent's help. The thing is that they dont think i need it because i've only been playing for a while. So the question is, How long was it until you bought your first stack?
