Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to amplify vocals when jamming to a good level. Right now I'm hooking a mic up to a spare guitar amp through a preamp. It works well at lower volumes but I get a lot of feedback when i turn up the amplification. Anyone have any ideas?

Sing louder.


Yeah, don't do that. You might want to get a better amp. Or maybe a PA system? I don't know if this will work, but try plugging in a noise gate into the amp you're using, it works with guitar feedback, but I don't know about feedback from a mic.

PA is the way to go, cause then you can plug any other istrument in. Our band uses a PA to do bass, two keyboards, and two mics. it really is the best solution.

Puts a lot of unneeded stress on the vocal chords that can cause some problems in the long run if you do it long enough

its not good to overexert your voice. you should sing a the level that gives you the proper sound and isn't uncomfortable.
