    I am a novice bass player, have only had my SX jazz for a week. I have no bass amp at all and have been looking for a used Minx or something similar to get started as a practice amp.

    I've got a lead on an SWR LA 15, very cheap ($60), but with a blown speaker. I'm researching the cost of a speaker but is there anything else I should be thinking about/checking?

    great folks who can hook you up for a great price.
    I put a Celestion 8" in my LA-8. It's a monster!

    Thanks, guys. Message in to Low Down, over in Deetroit City, we'll see what they say about the speaker price.

    I have a feeling this is not going to work out though.

    $60 practice amp that needs something simple/cheap=fine.

    $60 practice amp that needs a new $125 speaker, and 'blown speaker' may also be hiding blown output stage, whatever else=no deal, Neil!
