Whether you’re playing live or recording in a studio, multiple microphones help to boost your overall sound and microphone packages are an easy way to do that. With microphone packages, you can outfit your entire band and instruments, kick out a stronger beat or upgrade your current microphone with much needed accessories.
When it comes to microphone packages, how many you need and what you’ll be using the microphones for will definitely factor into your decision. If you’re playing live with your band or organizing a larger event that requires more than one microphone, you might want to consider the Audio-Technica M4000S 6-pack Mic and Stand Kit. This set includes 20-foot cables for more range, 6 microphones that offer crystal clear vocals and 6 tripod stands with non-skid legs. Have a smaller group? The AKG D8000M 3-Pack with Cable and Stand is also an excellent choice. This set of mics with cables and boom stands can be used for multiple vocals, your drum kit or other instruments.
For recording microphone packages, the MXL 800 Series Microphone Bundle is a solid choice. A total of 6 microphones can help you capture virtually any sound. Two MXL 840’s are excellent for drum overheads and acoustic guitars while the other 4 microphones ensure the rest of the band members are heard with optimum clarity. For smaller scale recording of vocals and instruments, consider the all-in-one Sterling Audio ST55/ST31 Condenser Mic Package. Ideal for home recordings, this set includes 2 condenser mics, a mesh pop filter and shock mount.
If you’re a drummer in a band, the CAD Pro-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-piece) has everything you need to ensure your audience hears every beat. This all-in-one drum package comes with 7 mics and a convenient carrying case for easy portability from home to your gigs. Another drum kit option for studio or live performances is the Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack. Gooseneck clips allow for perfect placement of the 7 mics and an aluminum road case protects your investment when you’re on the road.
Microphone packages come in a variety of sizes and desired sounds. Some packages are designed for specific instruments, some sets are better for live performances while others are best suited for studio recording. Finding the right microphone package all comes down to personal preference and maximum functionality for you or your band.
