Thats right. I do commission work and work as an art director but still poor is me. Which means I can't even afford that peavey minx110 amp which I thought would be good. So what I mean is, would it be okay -for practice purposes- to use an interactive speaker colon with: no eq, lineinout, hundreds off watts, and cheapness. I dunno. I feel sorry and I am soo anxious to play the first bass I am gonna have 10 days later. Help. somebody... anybody... *bursts into tears"
