there are better cheap amps out there to practice with. look around at pawn shops and flea markets for a cheap 10 or 15 watt amp. Peaveys are usually pretty good. I would avoid anything that said Squier or Epiphone on it though. but as for that one...I'm going to assume it is the 10 watt amp I saw on the web site and if that is the case, there isnt a whole lot you can do. Just keep the volume lower to keep it from getting distorted if you are trying to play clean.
