I have a drummer friend who owns the Behringer x2442. Yes it’s cheap, but you get what you pay for. The effects are not very good. In fact, he doesn’t use them. The EQ is a bit on the brittle/bland side. Needless to say, the drummer has a bit of buyers remorse. But if that’s all you can afford, then that’s that. Personally, since this is a startup band, I wouldn’t spend too much money until money starts coming in. The down side is that you will have to deal with a not so great PA system. Some of the venues you will be playing in will probably have a PA for you. That is a plus if the gear is decent.
