As Lev said you could wast money this is why I said price up the costs of preamp against components.
You could get a mostec mini pre if you still wanna use your mixer. The way I rigged the set up at home gets me by untill I get round to getting me a preamp. Each way has its advantages but the pre is the more authentic sound system route.

Had small set, sold scoops/drivers/amps,  when nothing much was happening.

I still have mixers/outboard/LMS/Mid tops, and borrow/hire kicks/scoops when necessary.

Call the people I suggested in previous post, they are experts who will point you in the right direction.

I can help you when you know what you want to buy.... LOL

which kinds of good delays, with "hold" function can be found, except the REALLY expensive BOSS DE 200 or all famous tape delays (such as roland's space echo)

 
   Boss half rack delays are good but not longer available new. The rdd10 & rdd20 have good sound but dont have hold button,this not being a problem because delays are long at full feedback. Ibanez did a digital delay with a hold button . You could try fleabay.

Unfortunately Saul you won't...

Outboard/pre-amps have their own advantages/disadvantages.

Some wishing to build a soundsytem, should hang out with people who own one first,  or talk to people like Ligwa/Jah Tubbys/Rensaab.

Otherwise you will waste a lot of money.

Maybe this question should be posted in Roots and Culture..



fair enough ClapSmile

but here's the setup of one of the best sounding on the block IMO - do you see a pre-amp?

Love the 4hf. I recall  Coxsonne using a studio style mixer with faders controlling bass and tops.
