I have a question- do most places let you rent out their amps? All I have right now is a small practice amp, and I was wondering what to do about this.

Get a better amp. Otherwise..use the output to go into the house PA. Otherwise, mic the amp and put that into the PA

good luck man

Well right now I don't have the money in my budget to get a better amp. I'm looking for a better job, but no luck as of yet.

In my experience, most cities have at least one place that let's you rent guitar amps for $50/day or so. That's usually what I do. I usually get a Fender Twin Reverb. :)

I've never played in a bar that had house amps. Like the others said.. time to buy a new amp. I'm not a fan of miking the practice amp. I once saw a band do that and it looked SO corny and sounded amateurish.

Most guitar stores will let you rent an amp, but it'll be a rip off - seems like it's time to save up for someone.
