Ok, well my band is finally going to get a vocalist soon. But we don't exactly have PA system. My question is, do we need one? I think a spare guitar amp that we have could be used for practicing. And then most places that you gig at have a PA system that they would want you to use anyway.

So suggestions are welcome. Please tell me what to do. Cause we don't really have the money for a Full PA system.

Thanks in advance!

You can get a small active monitor for vocal amplification. A guitar amp may work, but
1) it won't sound the best, and
2) microphones use XLR cables. Good ones do, anyway. You might find that you simply can't plug a mic in.

Some guitar amps have inputs for vocal mics, too. Does the amp have one?

Not exactly sure.... I dont think it does. I'd check, but it's at my drummers house, and he's away for 2 weeks.

^Wouldn't an adaptor work?

And i get what your saying about the monitor. We'll probably end up doing that if the amp thing doesnt work.

They make cables that have an xlr end and a 1/4" end. Youd need one of those. Also, depending on the vocal range of the singer, you could blow the speaker in the amp.
