Default Affordable Amp?

I've got a Yamaha DTXplorer kit that I take to college with me and would like to purchase an amp. I have very little experience with edrums so I was hoping someone could recommend a quality, affordable amp that would be used for nothing more than practice and jammin with friends.

Depending on what you think 'jamming' with friends is, I'd recommend either the Roland KC550. or the smaller KC-350. The 550 has a 15" speaker, and the 350 has a 12" speaker. Both are good full-range amplifiers and can take quite a lot before going into distortion. I always say buy more than you think you need.

Forget all that....Simmons DA200. It's underrated and I use it all day everyday to jam with friends. Plenty loud and is cheap.

Depending on your price...any powered speaker will be nice.
Behringer was mentioned above, and they are VERY hit or miss. More often than not, they're a miss - although I have a Behringer box mixer that's done me good for 6 years now without any problems.

If you can afford it - look into the Mackie Thumps. 15" powered speaker, the amp is matched with the woofer and the horn, so the power distribution is matched, and there's little chance of blowing either component. They MAP for about $349, but if you play your cards right, you could probably do better at a music store in your area.
