For practice, yes.

For gigs, not really.

Bah. It has one of "those" mixers. Grab a cheap Behringer mixer or something to save yourself a tonne of hassle.

Also, keep it in a practise room - not a hope in hell this will be useful in a gigging environment. Might need a few more leads and maybe a monitor or two to mic up amps and/or kit.

But for vocals over a drum kit? No problem! It's the bass guitar you've got to worry about. It can wreck havoc in a practise room.
