ive got a "gig" coming up with at my highschool with a blue/rock sort of thing that one of our teachers does every year(it's our teacher, me, and 3 other students)


i want to use my bugera 6260 head and cab


we're playing outside and apparently they want us to have our amps hooked directly into the schools PA instead of just playing as we normally would


im not sure if this is even possible with my head, its got a 1/4 preamp out but nothing else


would using the preamp out to the PA work?
even if it did work would it sound like total shit?

Tell them to mic it and run that to the PA (which will no doubt majorly suck, unfortunately).

Good luck, whatever happens.

thats what i was thinking...


so is there no chance of getting a good sound out of it like that then?

If the PA is crappy then no it won't. Seems like your school's under the impression that all amps have a line out.

Tell them it has to be mic'd up, not alot else you can do really bro.

Try it mic'd before you play and if it sounds bad I'd just go without the PA, it should be plenty loud enough, only downside is you wouldn't be coming through the monitors(if they even have monitors)

heres the thing, the vocals are coming through the speakers BEHIND the audience.


having the vocals coming from behind them and the instruments in front of them would guarantee that the front of the audience wouldnt hear vocals and the back of the audience would hear ONLY vocals.


weve got a really really bad setup but its a school so whatever

$30 gets youi an SM57 knockoff (GLS-57 it's called i beleive)

Mic it with one of those and you'll be set. You could try pre-amp out, but it would most likely not sound very good.

unrelated question, how do those veteran 30's sound with your 6262?


the stock chinese speakers in my 4x12 sound like shit and i cant afford vintage 30's

I only play at bedroom volumes, but i really didn't notice much difference to the stock bugera's. you got the bugera cab i'm assuming? or something else? although the VET 30's where alot easier to mic, easier to find the "sweet spot"

here's my latest clip with the Vet-30's mic'd:
