You could get a splitter and an XLR to 1/4 inch converter and run through the bass amp. Or, you could get a cheap little mixer and run through the bass amp. Or you could shout really really loud.

the only problem with running it through a guitar amp is that you won't be able to turn it up very loud without getting feedback.

In that case find a suplier for this

all you need is a mic and a cord and it is a great PA... then when you want to upgrade and have 2 speakers buy a second one to add on.

Thats all you need

hook them up through a bass amp. they just provide an all around better sound than a guitar amp


Yeah, if you have an extra bass/keyboard amp lying around, it'll treat you much better than a guitar amp.

The other option is play quietly enough that the singer can just be heard. I know that's outlandish now-a-days, but people that practice that way tend to magically turn into better group musicians and become more dynamic players.

Scream.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

Running it through amp does work but the amp and the vocalist will have to be really loud and all the other insturments have to be really quiet

This.

Go to a pawn shop and look for an old bass amp...or old keyboard amp. Seems like every pawn shop I go to has a few old Peavey keyboard amps...these would be ideal for you.

You might be able to come up with a crappy-sounding temporary alternative (like a keyboard or bass amp) but no matter what, eventually you're going to need a PA. So I suggest you save up every penny you've got until you can afford a basic rig, and in the meantime ask around and find someone who'll be willing to lend you one for gigs.
