a lot of guys flip the polarity on their overheads and other cymbal mics as well

also, a beta 52 is generally not a 'kick in' mic

consider comps for the backup vox as well

ditch the gate on the hi hat

add in a spare vox mic

those are all relatively minor things...

only thing that i see causing some potential problems is a mix of two vocal mics might piss off some monitor techs.

I flip polarity on the ride cymbal mic and the hi-hat mic, because I do both from below.

Well, he's kickin' it old-school with only has one kick-drum mic.

Anyways, it IS a kick-in mic -- in the box, in the truck, in the shop! Anywhere but in the drum.

Oh, you mean the 835 for the lead vocal and the SM58 for the other two? Any monitor tech who's pissed off by this shouldn't be on the gig. Period. It's not like the three front-line singers are sharing the same mix.

i believe the OP was seeking feedback regarding the detail and layout of the plot/list from an acceptance standpoint more-so than the preferences noted within.

as for choice of mic polarity, i prefer to make that choice during soundcheck based on desired results with the system performance/capabilities considered vs what others might be doing.

as for monitors, why would it matter what vocal mic they're using if it suits their voice AND they're using in-ears?

Thanks for the input everyone, I really do appreciate it.

At some point, I'll be investing in an SM91 so there are kick in and out mics.  Also, I'm gonna try and get the everyone who is singing to buy their own vocal mic.  The 835 and SM58s are all we have at this point.

I'm also seriously considering the Pro37s although I may wait until someone in the band asks for stereo crowd mics  Very Happy
