    Acoustic performances, and the instruments themselves, usually need to be handled differently than the electronic side of things. Thumping kick drums, compressed bass guitars and the like are not the norm for performances intended to be more musically subtle. A more natural sound is desired and it starts with microphone choice and deployment. Fortunately, most instruments can be picked up quite nicely with just three types of mics that most sound folks already have in their inventories. A mic locker… View this post

    Hardly Strictly Bluegrass (HSB) is not your average festival. In fact, there is nothing “hardly” or “strictly” about the event in any way, be it the artists booked, the location, or the mix of tech that Bay-area-based Sound On Stage (SOS) uses to make it all happen. This year, SOS—which has supplied sound for each iteration of the festival since its debut in 2001—extended its run of leaning on L-Acoustics to provide the PA for all seven of the festival’s… View this post
