    Provided by HOW To Church Sound Workshops. One of the most important things a church sound operator/technician learn is how to properly wrap cables for the sound system. A properly shop-wrapped cable will not only lay flat without any loops to trip your musicians, but the wire itself will last longer since there’s less stress on the conductors. And that means fewer sound failures during a worship service, something we can all aspire to. Wrapping and laying cables for a… View this post

Everything else in terms of microphones is pretty much open to negotiation. I do mostly unsigned artists, which often means that the “A List”… View this post
