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

Mic the amp! You'll cut more through the mix if your tone comes from multiple sources (amp and PA). Bare in mind the guitar tone is very "vulnerable" in terms of dispersion and reflection of sound - 3 or 4 rows of people in front of you, and your sound gets dampened so much, the people in the back rows will have trouble to hear you (unless you are really turned up cool.gif ). Plus, you can always cut the PA signal a bit if it sounds "too much". smile.gif
