    It'll be fine for practicing under headphones.

    I just bought a Peavey max 126 with headphone jack and cd input for $69. It does the same thing as a more expensive model, at least what I need it for. (headphone practice with cd player)

    It will work fine for bedroom practicing. It is not loud enough to play along with anyone other than one acoustic guitarist.

    i got that set when i started. the amp was fine for practicing alone. I would be more converned about the bass. Mine had a bad output jack and a bad ground onto the bridge. You are better off with an SX bass and mabye a used local amp.
    If you are in a major city, check out www.craigslist.com the site has an amazing music classified section. I got almost everything I have owned from craigslist in SF for great price.

    this amp is cheap and might be loud enough if you find a guitarist with a smaller setup.

  5. This is fine for a hobbyist or beginner package.
