Hi guys and gals! My band needs to be able to set up gigs with our own equipment and we're going to need some microphones. Things are tough around here so costs must be kept low. We play surf instrumentals with 2 guitars, bass, sax, drums. We're going to need 2 mikes for guitar amps and a set of mikes for the drums. The sax player has one allready and for the bass we'll use the amp's line-out. We do have a console and our aim is to be able to play at clubs/places that only have a PA-speakers system. In small sized gigs we won't be using mikes, just natural amp sound. Is there any need for miking the drums? We've done it once without mikes on drums and we were told the sound was very good, but I can't be sure 'cause I wasn't on the recieving side of the sound. How many mikes is the minimum we can use for the drums and how should we position them? Could you tell me some specific mike models to consider for drums and guitars? Thanks in advace!
