Been using band pa but keys complained it was robbing too much of his power. I’d really like a stand alone pa for drums only.
Sorry, meant PA, not amp. Currently the keys player doubles on guitar. Also vox and bass are in PA. They do some shows as a trio (sans drums) and some as a duo, minus bass. The existing PA covers those scenarios.Never heard of that before! band PA - "robbing of too much [of his] power"? (you said keyboard player's "amp" not the band's PA in your original question - what is it?)
If it's the band PA - what else is going thru it?
Yes, you could get your own PA for the drums - nothing to stop your obs. Free world. But I'd look to upgrade the band PA (why carry two PAs to a gig?) or upgrade the keyboard player
