When should I upgrade from practice amp?

    I am a very new player, working now with a teacher for about two months. All I have right now is a small cube practice amp and a set of headphones which I use.

    My question is: when should I seriously consider upgrading to a true amp setup for playing purposes?

    As it stands now, I am not even in a band, so there is little rush. I am just curious as to when you guys think it is necessary or useful to start working with one.

    Start working (as in playing together, not as in making money) with a band? IMHO, as soon as possible! There just isn't anything funner than jamming along with others!
    As for the amp question, I would say get a bigger one when your practice amp isn't loud enough.
