I play guitar, piano and some bass, but only in my home or at other friend's homes, and I like to sing so I needed a PA system. This Squire 4-Channel amp was the cheapest that Musician's Friend offered, so I gave it a try. It fulfills my needs perfectly. It gets loud enough to play at small gatherings, and maybe a small coffee shop venue. But, there was a bonus. I now use it to play the songs I record on my Boss MicroBR. I came up with the bright idea of using it when I found that since I had bass, rhythym, and lead parts recorded, I could not use my guitar amp or bass amp individually to play the songs. I can lower the volume track on the Micro BR of the instrument I don't want to hear, then play the instrument and/or provide vocals. It is absolutey indispensible for my practice sessions! Also, I have a cheap keyboard that I connect to the system, which together with the keyboards volume control, will hurt you ears in a small (15X15-sized)room. So when friends play their instruments, I can easily match or exceed their volume on the PA with the keyboard hooked up by itself.On the negative side, the control markings are absolutely terrible! I had to keep a small flashlight handy so I could light up the control face to distinguish between controls. The colors of the letters blend in with the color of the background. I think that possessing a cheap PA system does wonders for one's enjoyment of music, and there are many more imaginative ways to utilize this system. It is worth the money for me.

I was happy with the system until the quarter inch jack on the speaker cab broke. I was able to fix that but then the quarter inch jacks on the front of the mixer started breaking. Plugging in was ok but when you go to unplug, the contact inside the plug would bend then break. So you are left with a piece of metal floating around inside the amp. Finally, I replaced the auxilary input jack with a jack of another brand and covered over the quarter inch jacks on the remaining channel. But now I am happy with the four low imp inputs and the one high imp aux imput. I like the way the woofers are protected from the lowest frequencies with the built in filter.

I dont know much about technical things but I bought this in the summer of 2009, i was on a tight budget and needed something decent to run vocals and keyboards thru. I got what i wanted and more! This thing has plenty of power. I have it in my garage and you can hear it clearly from more than 100 yards away(i live in the middle of nowhere). This setup is perfect if your trying to start a garage band. My suggestion is that you run keboards and vocals thru it and run guitars and bass thru seperate amps because if you run bass and guitar thru it the sound distorts and increases your chances of blowing out the speakers. But overall a great deal!! Buy this beauty, i was glad i did.
My band and I put together some money for this thing. We were excited and everything, then we took it out of the box, plugged it in and nearly took a hack saw to it right then and there. But we didnt. We've had it a couple of months now and all of a sudden it just stopped working. Speakers suck, mixer sucks, everything sucks. I just had to warn you.
I am a mobile DJ, this system is perfect for "VERY" small events such as backyard birthday parties, summer pool parties, small bars, small outdoor gig, and just about any gig with less than 50 people. The sound quality is decent not alot of bass but decent. I have used this system for small bars, backyard pool parties, car shows playing oldies, and nursing homes playing big band and swing and it does a nice job. If your gig calls for playing LOUD and having LOTS of bass this is NOT the system for you. if you want a system to do small events, decent volume, nice smooth sound, and is light on weight and price this is a nice little system. by the way.... the microphone that comes with this PA sucks, use a shure SM-58 and get a nice XLR Male to female cable.
I recently bought this PA system. And its perfect, exactly what I wanted! For small speakers it plays very loud. Cheap affordable and amazing.
i noticed these reviews were relatively good but mine didn't even last 3 months. when we first used it (had it for 2 weeks) we noticed that one of the inputs was out. our bassist plugged into it until he got an amp. then two more of the inputs came out about a month later. finally the fourth decided 3 whole months of moderate usage was too much. piece of crap. we had to buy an expensive 1/4in-xlr converter for the vox(since our low end mic had an unbalanced cable). although the eq's are so-so at best, the reverb is just plain awful. I never used a kustom before but I would much sooner go with something i don't know about than something i simply know is bad.
My parents (over 70 years old) play harmonica's in a little band. A years back they started to go around entertaining at nursing homes, VA centers and other places. The local news did a story about them and now they go all over the place to entertain (they are volunteers and they just do it for fun). They were having trouble with sound volume (and their audience is naturally hard of hearing anyways) so I bought them this in October of 2002 as a present. They liked it a lot except complained about only having 4 mic inputs (8 harmonica players apparently can't share 4 mics). Later I got them an berringer mixer board with 8 mic connectors so there would be less complaining. They run the mixer into the amp for some of the harmonicas, the bass harmonica uses a separate connector so they can set tone for it. Later I bought them a wireless mic which occupies the third connection and they are just starting to like it (they are slow to adopt new things). They are extremely happy with the unit and it's worked great for years. They practice 2 times a week, and perform for an audience at least once a month. I'm not sure if they use the PA for practices (too many harmonicas in one room gives me a headache so I avoid their house when they are practicing) but we do go see them perform occasionally and it doesn't sound bad (both this PA and the band)Overall I'd call it a great value for the money.
I played this thing at the music shop I work at and it was awesome. It is a great buy for the money. And the problem with not having a good equalizer can be solved easily by buying a cheap used one. I use this baby for recording in the back room. I have a drummer hooked up to three of the channels and I have my guitar hooked up to one. We overdub the vocals later. This is a great system to use for making your own recording studio in a small room. Just buy a Recording program and hook this PA up to your PC. I will be buying this baby here in a week. If your buying it to do big live shows, then don't buy it. Like it says under the details "It's great for small gigs." But they failed to mention that this thing is great for recording. The reverb isn't that great, but I always hook my Boss GT-3 Guitar Effects Processor to it, so I don't use the reverb. This setup is great for beginners and pros alike. It's best use is for recording. Just hook it up to a PC and your ready to go.
I bought this PA for playing live gigs with my band, but it simply wasn't loud enough for rocking out. Maybe if you're using this PA just for acoustic gigs it would be alright, but with full instrumental the vocals will be tough to hear (especially if you have two mics plugged into the system at the same time). Another problem is major feedback. Maybe that was a problem with the mic I was using, but I was getting major feedback when using this PA. Overall, maybe consider saving your money and getting a higher quality PA.
this was my first effort in purchasing a pa system. It was ok, but my band and I play really loud, so trying to push these 10 inch speakers over that didn't work too good, plus the head was only 150 watts. So if you need something to get your voice heard over some loud bandmates I suggest more watts from your mixer as well as better speakers, cause this doesn't do the job at all.
I've had a band for over 2 years now and the 80 watt mixer just doesn't cut it, it's great when you have 30 watt amps and a quiet drummer. There aren't any spectacular features but if you are just starting out and don't want to spend a lot this is right for you.
My band, fallen grace, was using a 20 watt practice guitar amp to sing through for 4 months, while our guitar players and bass have have stacks. this system is loud enough to hear me over them and drums, it's a really great buy. You have to fiddle with it a little to reduce the feedback, though.
Very nice PA. Not a whole lot of sound options but enough to get the sound you're looking for. My band doesn't get anywhere close to turning it up full power and it is still very loud. Sometimes it cuts out but when we push in the "low" knob at the master controls, it goes back to normal. The reverb is fuzzy, but sounds good.Overall, very nice PA for a starting band that doesn't have alot of money.
As an acoustic guitar player, I will say that this PA does the job for small venues such as coffee shops and little gigs, but as far as playing in a whole band, the drums will drown it out right off the bat, not to mention adding the guitars and bass. If you're in a band, you're gonna need more power, but if your an acoustic guitar player who does solo shows, this thing is well worth the money.
As a small band starting out this is a perfect fit. We are using this for vocals only. I already owned some decent mikes so I didn't bother with the one that came with the unit. Nor did I bother with the cables either as they are very cheesy. The mixer is plenty loud with very little hum at max volume.The reverb is a little thin for my taste.I am using this unit to drive two Yamaha 12" and the two Squiers as monitors. The Squiers have good high clarity and booming bottom end. Altogether a nice little unit.
I bought this PA after wasting a bit more money on a Kustom Profile (that I got rid of within a few months of purchase due to a bad hum in the PA when at half volume).This little PA is an excellent value for the money! I play a lot of bar/restaurant indoor/outdoor gigs and the Squier 4 has truly enhanced my overall live sound.A few cons, just to be picky: The spring reverb is kind of thin and it could use chorus. Tone adjustment is OK but it really needs a more intricate EQ. The speakers could use handles on top, rather than the hand scoops in the back. For the price, you can't beat it.When turned near full volume I didn't get any unwanted noise! This is an excellent, cost effective PA for a solo/minimalist musician!Being the cheapskate that I am, I feel very lucky to have found such a quality product in this price range!
For the price, this is a pretty good PA system. The EQ on it isn't the best, but with just the right amount of knob fiddling it sounds as clear as an azure sky is deepest summer.
great too much feedback
Powerful, inexpensive, good starter...
I purchased this PA system a couple of years ago when it was priced at about a hundred dollars more. The system is built well and takes a good beating. It has the stand mounts built in, something most 2-3 hundred dollar PA systems lack that feature. I wish there was a better way to tune in the tone, but don't let other reviews fool you, I am able to get a great sound out of this system. My rating is based on using an SM-58 mic. Oh, and it gets loud. The system is perfect for a band, even with a drummer.
If you are in need of a small band setup, this is the way to go. I bought this for myself to use for small gigs.
