anyway the people who wanna do it say everyone has the drummer mixing his own drums at stage and then just sending the mono/stereo channel back through the snake into the board


They are wrong, this is not the way most people do it.

also if we did run it at the FOH would we have to use another amp for that mixer?


Send the outputs of you sub mixer to the FOH mixer.  You shouldn't need another amp.  Amp go with speakers.

Justin Langman:
No amp required.

The purpose of submix-ing is simply to give you some more input channels. By mixing your drums seperately and then feeding only the mix to your main board, it only takes up one channel.

Let us know what mixer you have if you like. But any mixer should to the job. Does it have channel eq or were referring to some kind of small graphic eq on the outputs?

Nathan Tisdale:
yes please don't give the option to your drummer to mix his own drums, I am drummer and I know I would not want to mix myself for the FOH because it would sound bad. because if it was up to me the kick would be vibrating the old people's skin off lol.

Looking at your stage, to get the most benefit, you will want some sort of absorption on the wall behind to drums, otherwise most of the sound will be reflected into the room anyway.




Add the hard ceiling and the largest difference with the shield will be for the musicians standing just in front of it.

I'd start with the shield first and hear what you need.  And by shield, I would suggest an absorptive back as well.

Then if you need mics, you could get away with a snare/kick combo.  But that will totally depend on the sound you are still getting when the shield goes up.


2 cents, anyway.

Yes, they are very wrong. Of all the people in the room, the drummer is probably in the worst position to be making mix changes.
