Finally getting over the stage fright to be able to do local jams, open mics, and even try my hand at recording at home. I've started on the home recording setup - using my OM-40 with a Shure SM-57 , going into a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, with Studio 4 on my PC. THe astonishing array of things to do with recording is overwhelming.

Going out 'on the road' to small indoor venues, what do you guys use for such? I'd likely take my Seagull for that - and happy to put a pickup in that. Not as ready to take the Larrivee out yet, but probably, eventually. Maybe.

An old beginner, looking for pointers.

Well, first thing to ask is if you plan on singing as well as playing, and if you are primarily going to be solo, or working with another player or singer?
1. Bose and Fishman both have self contained easy to transport systems you can get into for under 1000 dollars.
2. For lower cost, one might consider getting a small mixer and a single powered PA speaker. Mackie makes both and that "could" put you in business for around 400 dollars.
Research. We have had forum discussions about this, applicable to both pro and amateur level.

Thanks, Mike. If someone is singing, it isn't me! But I take your point and will do more digging.
