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

Thank you all for the tips...it was very useful.

I think we have everything in order now. No more arguments. smile.gif

The place is a medium sized club...mabye 200 - 300 people...i´m not sure. But i´m not expecting so many to show up. It will be a practice gigg for us. We are playing classic rock numbers and mabye some originals from us.

I have 2 condenser mics.....won´t we benefit anything using them as overheads?

Could you tell me again please exactly what you all have from mics? I got a bit confused now, since you didn't mention you have 2 condensers before, all you said, drummer has 3 mis and you have 1. biggrin.gif
Also, are you sure that the club isn't providing some microphones as well??

This is exactly what I was thinking.... Usually in the club where there is some bands live they have a whole bunch of microphone and the tech is going to help you fixed them all.
