If you played both a strictly acoustic classical guitar, an electric guitar (say a strat), and also a keyboard (I play an upright piano now, but I'll be getting a keyboard when I move), and you want to amplify all three instruments without shredding your wallet, then how would you go about it? Can this be done without using three separate amps or a PA system?
I own an decent guitar amp, mics and a small PA system, so if I play with an bassist or drummer and I need to cut through, then yes I will absolutely use the PA. But I mostly play in my living room, so less is best and the minimalist in me is wondering, are there sub $350 combo amps that get good sound out of a strat but also have a mic channel with an XLR input so I can use a dynamic or condenser mic and get good sound out of a classical guitar as well? Or maybe the solution is the right piezo pickup and pre-amp for the classical guitar and something portable that amplifies both it and the keyboard.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. I have been playing electric guitar since before I was a teenager, so I'm comfortable with what is and isn't necessary, but I've only been playing jazz/blues on the piano for a couple of years, and less than that for the classical guitar, so I don't know the marketplace.
