Well my current band is now in the process of searching for a new singer (the one we had didn't work out due to reliability issues). I guess it's better that he left now before we really started playing out with this particular group. Our old singer had a PA that he used when we practiced. So what acceptable substitutes are there for someone to sing through so he can be heard when we practice at normal playing volume? Right now when we've been auditioning people we've had to plug a mic into an old guitar amp (which had to be CRANKED to hear anything) and that creates big feedback issues sometimes so they can't move very much. We don't really have the money for a whole PA system right now, so what else really works for practicing? We never even used the PA our old singer had besides to practice because there was always house PA's. Any auggestions?
