It's not going to work for gigging and probably sound like complete ass, but if it's just to hear yourself during practice I guess it would work.

could i use a spider 3 15 watt amp for mic and vocals? since i can not afford a PA system?
or will it not be loud enuf?
or can some1 else tell me some cheaper ideas for a mic pas system etc


for a cheap PA? try to get an old stereo or karyoke machine. It's going to sound awful no matter what though

Personally I think Spider 3's totally blow, and like ^^ said, it won't be any good for gigging. but yeah, it would work during practice I guess.

Like Wayward Son said, for gigging 15 watts of solid state wont even come close to loud enough and a spider 3 (ugh) will sound like crap but for home practice it would work perfect.

15w? Unless your band practices at a whisper, the answer's no. Sorry man. Save up and get a used PA.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

15 watts wont be loud enough. my band uses a 100 watt solid state guitar amp as a PA and its barely loud enough. we have to shout to be heard.

Also if your planning on gigging, check if the place already has a PA. I've gigged for a year with only having a fender frontman 15 and never had to use it, I just used their PA system and borrowed an effects processer from a friend.

Of course then I got a Valveking112 + V30 & new tubes......

I think someone just posted without reading the threadstarters OP...he's talking about using a spider for vocals not guitar

Whoops lol sorry about that.... but my point is still the same. If the building already has a PA see if you can use that.

You can get a used monitor amp or even a small PA head+cab(s) or wedges for <$100 if you look around. You really only need monitor-level amplification for practice anyway, as opposed to a gig where you need a real PA so you can be heard throughout the room.
