1 Hipbone 4 weeks ago So I have a question in regards to how much power a band needs?I have a three piece band with powered mains. We typically don’t mic the drums but do on occasion. So it’s guitar, bass, a mixing board, my pedal board and two powered mains. A simple basic set up.I’m questioning the amount of power we need to give the amps what they need.we've never blown a breaker while playing, but I notice at some gigs the guitar and bass amp just sound horrible. The bass kinda farts and rattles, the same with my guitar amp. We played an outdoor gig today at a car show and had one extension cord available to pug into. The sound was just not great. Can having everything plugged into one outlet contribute to funky, poor sound?
