Help please; I am writing a series of columns on 'A Guide to PA' and have a whole series of questions on specific makes of equipment. I really need some advice about what is available in the USA and anywhere other than the UK, though anyone from the UK can give me any experiences they have.

The guide is aimed at small bands, probably start-ups so the equipment needs to be affordable.

So any help on brands and any experience on good buys and bad buys.

Thanks everyone
Yamaha has great live sound stuff. Behringer is decent, but isn't my first choice.

Man, I've used off-brand stuff so much, I've forgotten the brands.
