Drum vocal
« on: December 07, 2018, 10:26:34 am »

Question for all those out there.. My artist has decided to sing a couple songs behind a drum kit, and he's a whaler.. Snare drum is bleeding bad. Anyone else have this problem? if so, what did you do?

I usually stick an OM7 in the drummers face. Mic stand high up, the boom pointed down, and mic pointed towards his face so he still have good room to play. Butt of the mic usually ends up pointing somewhat towards the highhat.

Hi Al,

Check out the differoid Crown CM311A.
Singer has to have lips to the grill to work.

Drum mute rings allow a Drummer to wail on the drums and
at the same time have a little lower stage volume.
Others in the band might appreciate this...

Good health,  Weogo

I usually will start with a Shure beta 56A. Primarily because of the small form factor and right-angle cable connection, but also because the super-c pattern seems to reject snare and hat pretty well.

I've had good luck with the AKG D40.

That's the mic I wish all drummers used. Good off axis rejection and as a bonus, it sounds great. Only drawback is that it costs a lot more than a 58 and some people don't like headsets.

I have a few Crown CM310A and I might be willing to part with one. If the op is interested he can pm me.
I have used these for singing drummers and they are quite effective. The mic does require the user to understand how to properly use the mic or it will reject his voice as much as it will the drums. The mic is a condenser that requires phantom and has a differoid pattern.

I just checked eBay and someone claims to have a new (new old stock?) original model CM310. Listed for under 140.
Mine are the “A” model. I’m not sure what the difference is.
The A model is newer so Crown must have made some change to the design.

If it's a tight budget (even if it's not) look at the Samson Q8. I have a couple now and they are a suprisingly good supercardioid
