Right.....been rehearsing for a while with a band (4 piece) with a view to playing some gigs. We are playing a charity work night thing where we will be doing 1 song maybe 2. But since we've been rehearsing we'd like to keep it going. My question is, at the moment we just rehearse with Guitar Amp, Bass Amp, Roland electronic drumkit, with the vocalist going through the same amp as the drumkit on a separate channel. All very basic, to say the least but as this all came about with the intention of playing a song or two, we were never going to start buying equipment. But as that is changing we'd like to look at sounding a bit better. We have no more inputs/channels to accommodate any more mics, or keyboard.
So are we at the point where the most efficient way of handling this is to get a mixer with more inputs and some sort of largish speaker for the vocals,keyboards and drums probably (as they are currently going through a guitar amp) (it actually surprisingly sounds better than your thinking!) to go through? What do people normally do for rehearsing?
I have no idea on what is required, mixers/powered mixers/speakers/ etc etc.
Any pointers would be good. Don't want to spend a fortune, but at the same time, if we are going to invest, perhaps go for something expandible if required for gigging.
