    i have been considering getting a portable amp(you know the little ones you can carry around and play on the move). i have found a mini fender amp for $30 is it worth it? is there anything good about having a portable? anything bad?

    I would just go for a headphone amp. All portable amps I've heard either weren't loud enough to hear (not even in a band setting) or sounded like complete crap. I can't see any advantage in having a portable amp.
  3. they're fine, if you like your bass distorted and tinny. great for guitar though.
