For as long as artists have been performing, they have been doing so in front of live audiences. Most would agree that rush of adrenaline they get from live shows is like nothing else. When playing in front of a crowd, there is an expectation to play flawlessly so the very last fan in back can hear every note you make loud and clear. A top quality live microphone package provides the hardware you need for a rock-solid performance.
Live microphone packages vary greatly in number of items and specifications. The most important thing to consider is what your needs are. Are in a rock band, a solo performer or part of a gospel or acapella group? Does every person in your band need a mic? If you travel a lot, do you need a storage bag? Once you narrow down your individual requirements, finding the proper package will be that much easier.
If you perform on your own or want a package simply for home practice, you likely only require one mic. The Nady Starpower package contains one mic, one stand and one cable. If you sing gospel or acapella with no instruments, you may not need mic stands. The Audio-Technica M4000S microphone 6-pack is perfect for these types of synchronized harmonies.
Are you in a rock band where members not only sing but play instruments? The AKG D8000M 3 pack contains 3 mics, 3 tripod boom stands and 3 cables, making it an ideal choice for multi-tasking musicians. If you spend a lot of time on the road, you naturally want to protect your equipment from the bumps and jostling that go with the territory. The Electro-Voice 3-pack not only comes with mics and cables but has a nylon carrying bag to keep your gear secure and in good working order.
Whether you’re playing in an intimate bar in front of twenty people, or tearing down the house in an auditorium of thousands, you need good microphones and accessories to complement your sound. A live microphone package is a convenient way to get all the coordinating equipment you need in one easy shot. With the right supporting gear, you’ll sound better than you ever thought possible.
