Obviously you'll need a vocal mike (for
vocals or introductions)
but your PA needs to be able to amplify your chosen instrument
as well. In the case of acoustic guitars, this can either be
done by using another microphone or, if it is an
electro-acoustic guitar, it can be connected directly into the
PA system. However, if the electro acoustic just has a standard
jack output then it must first go though a DI (Direct Injection)
box before connecting the XLR output of the DI box to the XLR
(mike) input on the PA mixer. If you don't do this the guitar
will sound very thin and lifeless. Please see
acoustic guitars in the advice centre.
We would recommend that you go for a mixer with built in digital
effects (like reverb). This keeps the system nice and simple and
you don't have to buy a separate effect unit.
