    Right now im playing with an old guitar amp i own, its not to bad for practicing and it can go pretty loud. Should i buy a bass amp though? Is the money worth it?

    Yes you should. And you should post amp questions in the Amps forum.

    Aren't we in the amp section? And, yes, you should get a bass amp for a bass. A guitar amp can't come close to representing the Bass frequencies with any accuracy at all. A bass amp is designed to do just that, even a small, cheap bass amp will sound better than a guitar amp. Go get one right now!

    I'd look into the posts of TB member TomBowlus. His postings convinced me that I need an amp:)

    ps. a bass amp is a wonderful thing. totally different cabinet design allows for all the low-end goodness to come out. You can get a nice one for very little money.

    If you're going to be playing with/in a band anytime soon, then I'd say you should definately consider it.

    If you're just thumping away in your bedroom, I'd say it's not so important as long as you're not dismayed with your sound/tone.

    But hey, that's just me :smug: .
