: : i've been thinking about getting a microphone and an amp, i only really play by myself or with a friend or two, are there any real benefits or would i be wasting my money?
: The main benefit of an amp is that you can play louder. This is helpful if you're playing with electric guitar or other loud instruments.
: An amp also allows you to use effects (distortion, etc.) This can be fun, and give you a different sound, if you like that sort of thing. On the downside, all this stuff does cost money, and it can get to be a headache to lug around.
In another posting I recommended the CRATE 508. It's a small inexpensive tube amp that sounds so good, you could mic it and play it with a band.
