    Popular rock band Umphrey’s McGee are touring with a wide assortment of Telefunken dynamic microphones for vocals and drums. “Keeping the drum kit out of a drummer’s vocal mic is difficult.,” says FOH mixer Chris Mitchell.  “The M81-SH offers great rejection while still sounding natural and strong.” Originally from South Bend, Indiana, the music of Umphrey’s McGee is often referred to as progressive improvisation or “Improg”. Although the band is part of the jam band scene, with ever-changing setlists, improvisation,… View this story

    You turn on the sound system and you hear a radio station. Now what? Let’s lay aside the ‘magic fixes” and “voodoo methods” and set forth a methodical procedure to deal with this problem, which is called Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). The key is to “divide and conquer.” It’s essential that the problem be localized to one part of the sound system. If more than one problem exists, these tests will help disclose that also. Start with simple tests and… View this story

    When I first started my work in the church, lavalier microphones were considerably larger, and headset mics were non-existent. In my youth, our church still used a “around the neck” dynamic mic for “portable” applications where the pastor/presenter wanted to be hands-free and/or move around. It was an Electro-Voice 649a and it measured almost 3/4 of an inch around and approximately 4 inches long. This mic was so big that a neck coil (think necklace) was needed to hold it… View this story
