By Mike Eccles VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as an Amazon recommendation as I had to learn how to operate a new live (church) PA system (lots of vocals, guitars, keyboard, drums, etc., and a very mixed "audience"). It has both encouraged me and challenged me, and certainly resulted in a better first attempt to use the new system. Well written, easy to understand for the non-technical, and probably more in it than my initial needs. Other books in the series have helped as well. A great investment - inexpensive and comprehensive.

I lead a sound team at my church (His People) in London. This book has been an excellent reference to brush up my knowledge again. Some very good theory and practical tips on mic setup etc.
It is a very good pocket reference for a whole range of things (cable connections, typical frequencies etc.)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good beginners book... 15 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an ideal book for someone who knows someone nothing or very little about live sound reinforcement. If however, like myself, you already know a reasonable amount and you want to delve deeper or consolidate on theory you might find this a bit too basic.

Having said that, the book is well laid out in a sensible order and is a handy quick reference - particularly the section on wiring practices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great overview 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted something that provided the basics of PA systems and this does it very well. Its small size is handy, I even read it on the beach on my hols. The author has other books in a series and I shall be looking at getting another one to complement this one soon.
