  • I bought a pair of JBL PRX612M's, Telefunken M80 and now I need a mixer - Which mixer

    I've been looking at the A&H MixWiz, but I don't think I want tp spend that much.

    What would be a great mixer for around $500 to $600.

    This PA will be used for rehearsing a 3 to 4 piece band.

    You can't go wrong with Behringer.

      You could get an inexpensive Soundcraft EFX-12, and it'll sound pretty good, but you'll get limited routing and i/o with this type of board (1 aux send). The MFXi series Soundcraft boards are a bit more expensive, and you'd get two aux sends. You won't find direct-outs for multi-track recording, with this class of mixer. Depends on what you plan to do with the board. A used MixWiz would give you a lot of flexibility.

          The terms "Good" and "Cheap" are almost always mutually exclusive of one another.

          However, there are some decent options in that price range.

          Since you're only a "4 piece" band, you probably aren't going to need 16 channels... so a ~12ch board will work nicely.

          Although I have seen some A&H MixWiz3's going used for $650. Might be a good look.

              Do you have a model number?

                  I'd still look at a Mixwiz. They can be found used in the $400 to $500 range. Not to much else out there that offer much value in that range. How many channels do you need?

                    So are you saying they even stole your name for their new model????

                      Thanks for the suggestion. The more I think about it i'll most likely get the A&H.

                          That is really the best solution. Like I said above, they can be found in your price range if you don't mind used. Hard to beat up to six auxes and up to two built in FX, decent pres and great EQ sections for the price.

                            Well, they call it the "ProCraiggX", but they aren't fooling me.

                              Not for $600. New will run $1000.
