Apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I currently play an Ovation Electric-Acoustic which I'm about to begin performing with but I don't have the money to buy an acoustic amp. Does anyone have any recommendations for how to go about amplifying my guitar well, but on a budget? Should I be thinking about DI boxes and if so, which?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks for the link.
I'm not sure a PA would suit my needs as all venues I play in have in house PAs. I'm more concerned with some form of amplification to go between guitar and PA.
You should be able to plug directly into the PA. You might want an eq pedal in your chain. Be wary of feedback, that's the biggest problem with amplifying an acoustic. The eq might be able to help you in that regard.

Yep, straight into the PA. Although, I've seen people use keyboard amps with varying degrees of success. The peavey KB300 sounds good with a bit of tweaking, but I suspect is out of budget.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?
