    Tomorrow Im going to the music store to get a METRONOME and I decided since im there might as well get an amp becuase the one I got 3 months ago when I starting playing...is a behringer that was like 50 bucks. I want a real one this time...good enough for band stuff and gigs.

    Any suggestions on what to get?

    What kind of music do you play? What sort of tone interests you? How much $$$ are you willing to spend? Any size restrictions? How loud do you need to be? Do you want the capability to expand it later?

    With that money you could (if you buy used and shop carefully) buy a decent head or rack setup and cabinet.

    For $1k you should think seperate amp and cab..If you go a little larger on the amp you can always add another cab later, that way you'll have a more flexable system. Used is not a bad idea but: If it looks abused, it probably is abused.
