Dickensheets is often called in to fix the sound systems in these sanctuaries, oftentimes relying upon solutions from Bose Professional Systems. One of his more recent projects was the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Austin. There, Dickensheets encountered a small 250-seat… View this post

That’s why it’s so important to get the drums to sound great acoustically before the mics are even placed. That said, it’s surprising how little many engineers actually know about making a drum kit sound great acoustically. Following is an excerpt from The Recording… View this post

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   Most musicians really don’t want to learn about electrical engineering, or even how basic electricity works. Everyone, however, should learn how to test for and avoid electric shocks on stage. Guitar amps and mixing boards as wired from the factory are inherently safe, but they can become silent-but-deadly killers if plugged into an extension cord or wall outlet that’s improperly grounded. This is because guitars are held in moist hands while wet lips… View this post
