So I need a P.A. for singing. If i got a microphone that could plug into a guitar amp, would that work? Does it have to be an actual P.A. system?

you can do that for practices.

expect feedback, so put the mic far from the amp, start with on zero, and point the amp away from the singer.

If it's a fairly clean amp, it could. I'm not sure if it's technically safe, but I've done it with practice amps and just ran it as clean as I could get it. But you'd be better off with even a small PA combo.

Some amps have aux in or mic in, if your amp has that then you'd be fine.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.

ok a little bit more info i wasnt expecting that many replies

1) it's a new band, i just need something to get my voice over for practices, almost any place we play around here has a house p.a. system i could probably use
2) i finally replaced the Line 6 Spider II with a Peavey Classic 30 for guitar orgasms. I heard somewhere the Line 6 was pretty versatile for stuff like that, would the Line 6 do it?

Same here, how would the line 6 work? I was thinking the same idea since i have a spider that I don't use

i'm not sure about using a guitar amp for PA, but i know that my first PA system was 80 watts and cranked it couldn't really be heard over our drummer, granted, he hits really really hard... my 30 watt MG (crap) cranked couldn't even get over him...

so i don't see how a 15 watt guitar amp with a mic could be loud enough for a band practice

you plug it in on clean try it out like said. should get over in practice, prop it up on something to help hear it.

all guitar amps sound crappy, it being line 6 isnt a benefit. you just need something to make the mic loud. without too much feedback.

i heard a couple of good reports about the phonics. maybe you guys can pitch in a bit more go at least one up wattage wise,
in case you get a party gig. it'll always come in handy.

Yeah, the bass player is against pitching in for one, as he thinks we can just use a house P.A. wherever we play. But I need to get used to singing with one, and plus there's the off chance there may be unorthodox gigs that don't have a P.A.
