Easily Turn Your Guitar Amp into a Public Address System P.A.

Lots of Guitars and Amps out there. Your Guitar Amp can easily be turned into a a public address (PA) system perfect for meetings, parties, and special occasions where voice alone isn't loud enough. For very little money, your guitar amp can become very useful.

This video shows how I responded to the need for a PA by looking at my Guitar Amp in another light. With just a cheap Behringer microphone, 20 foot cable, and a Hosa impedance transformer, my PA system made me into a Techno Genius in the eyes of my friends and neighbors.

I know you have a guitar amp tucked away somewhere!!
