I've been playing bass for a whole 3 months now. (I guess you have to start somewhere.) My wife got me a cheap bundled package with a knockoff guitar ("Crescent") and a "Fever" 20W amp. Anything past about 40% on the amp distorts. I found a BX-40 on Craig's that I think I can get for around $140 -- it's 12 years old and the guy bought it when he was in 8th grade. Anyone know anything about this amp? Being that I'm so green to this, any pitfalls I should be aware of in buying an amp that's 12 years old and played by someone of the same age? Anything I should ask besides how it was treated? I'm far from playing with anyone else -- just taking lessons and noodling at this point. But down the road I'd like to play with someone. I'm assuming 40W is enough -- any thoughts there? Thanks folks.
