Hello everyone, i have a band for some years now, and since we constantly failed to find a proper singer i decided to do them myself since i've written all the melodies/lyrics. We recorded a demo and my vocals were ok but when we rehearse my voice is simply too weak and can hardly be heard (we play heavy/doom so there's a certain amount of volume). I tried to use a bass guitar distortion/compression pedal to boost my voice's volume but there was just too much feedback that kept ringing. Would a guitar pedal work better? I don't really use distortion for my voice, i just find an EQ combination which really helps the way i sound but the volume is my main problem...Any help and/or suggestions are welcome.

If you can't get enough volume, you do not need effects, you need either a better singing technique or better equipment. What kind of mic, amplification and speakers are you using?

well when we rehearse at my place i sing through an ibanez bass guitar amplifier with a cheap mic with a jack (no XLR). But that's not the thing, i know it's shitty equipment, the thing is when we go to the studio where there is a decent piece of equipment (don't know exactly what they've got though) i tell the guy to put the mic's volume as high as it can go and my voice still sounds lower than it should...

I had a similar situation when I started singing, but when I figured out proper singing technique, al lot of those problems were gone. You should find a teacher.
