PA System ????

PA System ????

Postby Banjomike0319 » Wed Dec 26, 2007 1:54 pm

Hey all,

Well after 6 months of saving's my band has come up with just about $1000 bucks. And we need a PA system for some upcoming gigs that dont have a house system for us to use.

So I wanted to get some input from all of you Kind folks here. Any suggestions on what we should get??

I know we need to have phantom power becuase for now I think where just going to use a condensor mic for solos and what not, and have like 4 or 5 vocal mics.

So Let me know if you know of any that you would suggest. Again where a 5 piece Bluegrass band.

Mandolin
Banjo
Guitar
Stand up Bass
Fiddle
Hey, how do you think jerry would feel about the world today???

I've always owned Peavey's and have been very happy w/ them. I would NOT go get a Behringer, heard not so good things about them. Here's my current Peavey, which I paid about $800 for a few years back:

A $1000 bucks should get you a decent PA. Maybe you should get a couple of condenser overhead mics since it's a bluegrass band. Look for mixers with built in phantom power for the condensers. I haven't had any problems with my Behringer mixer (cheap). Check out the package deals they sell from Music 123: http://www.music123.com/Great-Deals-On-Complete-PA-Systems----Save-Up-To--1049--g193t1.music123 and ZZounds: http://www.zzounds.com/cat--Live-Sound-PA--2713
and then there's always Musicians Fiend (Guitar Center Owned)...
