See post number 76. I don't of course know the venue or the scale of the PA and the skills of whoever will be working the mixer, but using, say, a mic'd up 10 watt solid state amplifier for monitoring what you're playing on stage as well, is going to be tricky in my opinion. I would much rather use a 50W or 100W valve amp at 10 watts on stage than a small solid state amp trying to compete with drums and bass and every other player. Of course, I could be very wrong Manuel. Do you know what the house PA consists of, how much wattage there is and how many speakers, and if there is a sound-person to operate it, or is it just a set and forget type of arrangement. I'm a tad concerned because we will be playing to a paying (?) audience... if it was "only" a jam it certainly wouldn't matter so much.
