Need some suggestion for band practice

Hi guys,

I need some help for setup PA system for band practice in my basement..
we only have 4 piece, 2 guitar, 1 drummer and 1 bass, the idea is all of us go direct and then use headphone for silence practicing.. it's not ideal but its good for us to keep the chops..

So far i have one PA speaker (EV ZLX15p), drummer will use his electronic kit, singer bring their own mic,

what do I need as a mixer and how I can hook up 4 headphone to the board etc... ?

Thanks in advance :)

I know that this "we will all go direct" may sound like a good idea...
I just don't see it working at all...
try it out , but in the end I think you will agree with me...
G, we've been doing it for 4+ years and, though our gear has evolved, it's always been decent. Allows the drummer and amps to open up, protects all our hearing, etc. I get that it's not for everyone, and to get GOOD sound and mix has been a fairly substantial investment, the side benefit being the gear we have now also functions as a pretty good recording studio. We're working on an album now.
sounds like to me that you have a system thats a little bit more complex then a mixer with a bunch of headphones attached...
Whatever you use and it works for you...thats allways a good thing.

Maybe when you get a chance, you can detail what system you use.

take care
