#1 for Hamm Guitars' comment...I have thought this same thing for years.Hamm Guitars said:I bet you all spent more than $800.00 on your guitar rig, so what's wrong with a singer forking out $150 for an SM58 and $800.00 for something to sing through?
Make sure that whatever you buy is easy to carry...high quality and compact is the best way to go IMO. Unless you are one of the priviledged few with roadies. Maybe I'm turning into an old boy, but I'm starting to get really tired of all the gear hauling.
cheers, and have a great day
