Well my friend wants to play guitar in our Ska band and I'm completely broke and he is too but my friend has a 60 watt behringer solid state amp


I know its not the best but would that get over drums?

also would a 30 amp for horns be good?

^ Yes, your drummer plays too loud.

What kind of horns? Trumpets and bones get damn loud, you might not need an amp for them. And you won't need an amp for them at practice.

^ If he's a good drummer he should have no problem playing quietly. IMO a drummer is no good if he can't play with dynamics and keep time, no matter what else he can do. (I'm not saying that your drummer can't keep time, I haven't even heard him, so don't take it to offense.)

yeah 60 watts is enough
"i disagree, I play on my own and if I had to play through my avt for another minute I'd probably poke a fork into the input, with the hope of both electrocuting myself and destroying the amp in one fell swoop."

We got a trumpet and a Sax

Im pretty sure the sax will need a mic


But yeah we dont need to mic the horns yet...its just we need to know what would be enough for horns and vocals to be heard good if we get anywhere.... even though Ska is literally dead in the northeast lol

If you use the 60 watt amp, I reccomend getting an amp stand for it. That way it will project the sound farther into the audience.

i used to have a **** 15watt fender frontman and it was only not getting over the drums BARELY with volume on four. sounds like crap past that and just farts
#17
Noones answering my question lol


we have an alto sax and a trumpet in our ska band so how many watts would we need for the vocals and using mics for the sax and trumpet

and also would like an acoustic amp work for doing that ^


And we can have vocals and the brass coming out on one amp right? just making sure
