    This upcoming January I'll be traveling to Washington D.C. and New York by means of a deluxe motorcoach. This is an extensively long ride from my location in Louisiana. I want to take my bass along, because there are some other guys going on the trip that play guitar. So I want to be up for some impromptu bus jams. I can't afford an acoustic bass, and I hear that they don't compete well with an acoustic guitar. So here are my options.

    A)I could buy some powered PC speakers and run them from my Sansamp.

    B)Or I could purchase a mini-amp. I saw one in musicians friend for like 25 bucks.

    I don't know if I could get as much volume from the mini-amp, without putting some passive PC speakers with it. It's considerably cheaper though.

    Which route should I go? I need help!!

    Buy a pair of Mackie SRM 450's and run them off your SABDDI. You'll be heard.
  3. I get a lot of use from my Pignose Hog 30. It's loud enough to compete with accoustic guitars and it holds it's battery charge for hours. It was only $139 from American Musical Supply.
