Started a band a couple months ago, and we just got our first gig. Our only problem is that our singer doesn't have any form of amplification. The drummer and I have decided to split the cost and give it to her as a gift, but have no idea what to get. I'm completely clueless on anything outside of guitar amplification, so I'm relying on you UG. I need a mic and amp (I've heard keyboard amps are a cheap alternative) that can compete with a drum set, and we're looking to spend as little as possible without the rig sounding like ****. So what am I looking for?
Thanks

^they are buying a gift for the singer.

trust me, they can spend less than half the budget on the mic.

ok. the guy wants to use a keyboard amp at a small gig.

how about you pay his bills.

most of those pa sets come with a mic. you use that and then let her save up for whatever she wants.
