    I'm a beginner guitarist (1 year of playing) and I have a Fender Mustang 1 v.2 combo modeling amp. It's good for beginners, but It's limited tonewise and functionwise and I want to upgrade in the future. I want to get a bass in the future and I thought about setup ideas that would work for both bass and guitar (I don't want to spend a lot of money and I have limited space).

    After asking on forums I thought that the best would be to get the Line6 Pod Go with a FRFR speaker (FRFR because I want to play bass too).

    After seeing some videos about FRFR's, I'm not sure if I want to get one now because of the muffled sound they have. I saw couple of videos where people criticize FRFR's (Here's one of them), I may be wrong.

    Other simular options with the Line6 Pod Go I consider are: the Pod go with studio monitors, the pod go with 1 bass and 1 guitar cabinet ( I don't know if it would work that way), the pod go with 1 bass combo amp (e.g 1x10 Fender Rumble 40) and 1 guitar combo amp (e.g 1x12).

    Before thinking about multieffects pedals, I considered the boss katana 100w combo or head and some combination with a bass cab, but most people told me it would sound bad.

    Some people recommended getting an interface and working with amp sims, but I want to be able to turn on an amp and play without needing my computer. If I get an interface it would be for a microphone and I can plug the guitar through a multieffects pedal first into the interface.

    As said I want simple setup solution where I'll be able to play both bass and guitar. Multieffect pedals seem to be the best choice, but where would I get the sound from? That's why I'm asking for advice here. I'm a bedroom player now, but I would like to play live in the future.

    What would you recommend me to get if you were in my situation?
