One of the biggest hurdles to playing a live concert is equipment. Sure you may have a guitar and an amp, but what if it’s not powerful enough to fill the room you’re playing in? It may sound great in your garage but will it fill up a room that can hold 300 people? You’re going to need some way to run it through the P.A. System. The same goes for drums, keyboards and singers.

  In the Equipment section I will be looking at various pieces of gear that are essential to playing live. I’ll discuss their uses and great ways to get the absolute most out of what you have. I’ll discuss some equipment that you can pick up that won’t kill your budget too.
