Comments about Yamaha MG20XU 20-Channel Mixer with Effects:

First, I'd like to thank the outstanding customer service provided by Musicians Friend. I ordered many items and we were able to make sure I received my items before the gig I had to run. The shipping was fast and mostly everything arrived well. A few items weren't of the best packaging, and one Blue mic was completely loose, just rolling about. Some dents and holes in a some of the speaker boxers, a little scary but the items were intact and working properly! I also received a great discount for the holiday, this was a huge plus!

As for the MG20XU, it has many Mic inputs in a smaller mixer than what you'd expect out of this many inputs, making it a little compact really. Everything is laid out well, I have the option of sweeping my mids, 4 aux sends (monitors), effects, and 1-knob compressors in 8 channels. Can come in handy that compressor. Did I mention 12 of the Mic Inputs are both 1/4" and XLR compatible? You can also use a high pass at 80hz on 16 channels. There's lots of versatility in this mixer, it took a minute to get familiar with it. An interesting feature are the "On" button lights to indicate which channels are on. Can definitely come in handy! 2 RCA inputs also comes in handy.

There are no channel inserts and the faders feel a little flimsy, but other than that, it's a great mixer. Time will tell how it endures.

This mixer is great for someone who doesn't need the extra inserts and needs the effects and extra mic inputs to mic a full band. For example - 8 mics on drums, 3 vocals, 2 guitars, 1 bass, 2 keyboards.
