PM Ensemble Gear

In Chapter Four of my book Coaching a Popular Music Ensemble, I suggest three sound system packages as well as a rhythm section package. If you click on the links below, you'll find these options at the price points discussed in the book. If you need help choosing gear, don't hesitate to reach out to the folks at Sweetwater.com or shoot me an email - I'm happy to help. These list can certainly be mixed and matched depending on your needs and your budget. Happy shopping!
