can someone recommend a good PA system/package that my band can use during practice? we are currently using a bass amp but it isnt loud enough.
Preferably under $200.
we just need sumthin that will let us hear the singer but also have decent quality.


thanks

is a pa necessary for small gigs? providing you have some kind of vocal amp?

@turtlewax, why would you need to bring a pa to a show? I never understand why new bands on here think venues don't have their own pa. They will.

Check Carvin catalouges, Pawn shops, MF, and eBay. The best bet for practicing is the Fender Portables, and the small Carvin 4 inputs

so this is for practice I realise, but is it absolutely neccessary for a band to have a PA when gigging? Assuming they have a loud enough backline of course

Yes, a PA is required when playing. Most places will supply their own PA though so that's fine.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Read the guide to PA in the columns. IF you spend wisely then you can use your setup as vocal monitors when you go gigging.
