Hi there.

My band is about to play their first gigg next weekend. It´s friday and saturday nights 3 - 4 hours each night in a fairly large pub/club.

I have Marshall DSL50 and I was wondering if I should use my SM 57 to mic the amp to the PA or not?

Also I had an argument with the drummer, because he thinks 3 dynamic mics are enough to mic the whole drumkit and it´s fairly large kit. He only owns 3 mics for this, and I told him to go out and buy at least 2 more. He is just going to put a mic in the bass drum and then 2 mics to the left and right of the set, and NO mic on the snare drum. I´m afraid that´s not going to cover it. I´ve read many articles about this and most drumers use at least 3 - 4 dynamics and 2 condenser for overhead. mad.gif

Other gigging tips are preaciated right now if you have any. smile.gif
