Fender Passport 500 Pro Portable PA
I bought one of these a few weeks ago to use as a PA for my practice room.
This system works great! It is clear sounding and simple to use.
It has the basics of everything that you need and nothing that you don't.
It becomes a 54 pound suitcase when packed.
It can record directly to a usb mem stick.
It has 6 instrument inputs XLR and 1/4"
It has phantom power for condenser mics and you can also pad the mics if needed.
It has 2 stereo line in channels and an effects channel.
It has a stereo 1/8" line output for recording or adding a powered monitor.
It has a 1/4" sub woofer output for a powered sub.
I have begun to mic my kit with it and record to my laptop using the Passport as the mixer.
It works great for that also.
I highly recommend this system.
I am listening to recorded music on it as I write this.
It has become my entertainment system too.
I like the way that it stands on the barstool and I can easily adjust the controls as the band plays.
I also notice that it doesn't feed back easily because Fender has installed circuitry to help prevent it.
I kind of like old drums:)
