  • Small mixers for wedding ceremonies and similar events. 2-6 instruments/vocals w effects.

    I'm looking for a small mixer to pair with my RCF powered speakers for the occasional small job, where I need to run a small acoustic instruments/vocal group through them for a song or two, like at a wedding cermony. Could be 2-5 musicians.

    I'd like something with decent sounding built-in digital effects, so I can add reverb when requested.

    Main features needed are:

    - Good sound/noise-free

    - reliability

    - Compact size, so I can keep it in my gig bag.

    - decent reverb/fx

    -- phantom would be nice, for the occasional string player with a mic that needs it, but isn't necessary

    What would you suggest? Thanks!

    How many actual inputs would you need and what kind?

      I'd say between 4-6 inputs at least two 1/4" and two XLR. It'd be ideal if each channel allowed for either kind.

      Thank you!

    Thanks, folks! It's so hard to demo these in a controlled environment. So, I really appreciate your feedback!

      I have a Peavey PV10 that I use for stuff like that.  6 XLR inputs (with insert jacks), 2 stereo line inputs.  1 aux for monitors, 1 internal effects that sound pretty good.

      It sounds great, and I got it for about $125 used.

    Another +1 for the ZED . Outstanding little mixer with really good sound. Also built like a tank.

      And yet another +1 for the Zed 10FX.  My mini-rig is a 10FX in a gator case; mixer on top, EQ, wireless mic, and power amp below.  Mixer rack in front seat, speakers in back seat, wires and stands in the trunk.  Done many a wedding, small event, and a very small band or two with this mixer/rig combo.
