I have and will continue to use various one mic setups in a live setting...However,It is not really our decision as a sound tech.If the band is committed to the technique and are willing to practice, it can be effective.The day of the show is not the time to be experimenting with something new.Sent from my DROID RAZR HD using Tapatalk
+1! We do this all the time for bands that have the one mic configuration as their preference. It all comes down to properly deploying the rig for the gig and ensuring that you have enough GBF. Putting the stacks with poor pattern control on the front corners of the stage is NOT going to work. You can't beat the laws of physics but you can try to use them to your advantage.Jeff
Had a successful gig despite rain ( rain in April, who-da-thought?). I do only a one or two of these types of multi-act festival style gigs a year, so you guy's input was helpful. Labeling mic stands and utilization of drop snakes, along with power strings up and down stage were key.Thanks again. Here's some pictures, everyone one loves pictures!Mike
Now you can appreciate why I have lots of short mic stands....
Those the new JTRs along with your first pair?How is Kelly?Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
Hi Dick! Yup I KNEW Id get some mic etiquette pokes ( they also double as lightning rods to protect the performers ) Actually their length was needed several times, so a trade off...
I have a few AT Pro7's that I can stuff inside mandolins, dulcimers and such thus dispensing with the need for any stand at all. My cooection of short stands started specifically to do Indian ensembles seated on the floor, so the groups in the photos are very familiar to me. I probably do more of this variety stuff than bands.Fun, eh?
