Hey guys, gotta warn u, while im not a beginner to the bass, i am very "undereducated" when it comes to amplifier's, pa systems and the like, and i need some help. My current "amp" is a small twenty year old traynor guitar amp, so please dont hold it against me. Went into this pawn shop today, and saw a huge bass amp with what i think is a pa system (once again im not sure what one looks like, but its a huge speaker with like a seperate component that sits on top of it, with all kinds of mixing knobs), its a traynor, and it looks like its paid its dues, at least 15 years worth. Anyway the speaker is selling for 225 Canadian, and the thing on top is 275 canadian, should i purchase it, cause my band is gonna start gigging soon, and i have enough saved up in the bank. Anyway any help is appreciated, even if u are just enlightening me on what a pa system is.
