Where Can I find Wireless Microphones to use in plays or musicals?
I am in high school and I put on musicals in my back yard every year with my friends and family. This year we would like to purchase microphones that are very small but work very well. I have a VERY SMALL budget…where can I find cheap microphones (about four)?
Wireless Mics are not cheap.
If they are then you get distortion. Kinda like baby monitors .
Does your school have them. Maybe you or a member of your school could ask another local school to borrow a set.
Or a music store. The ones that sell instruments not cds. Even a guitar shop has them.
Are there any wireless microphones that work with iPhone 4S?
I’m gonna be filming pranks on YouTube and I’m gonna do it with my iPhone 4S because of the good video quality. But I need a wireless mic so the phone can be far away but still have good audio.
So. Are there any wireless mics that work and are good for iPhone filming? And not too expesive
Yes there are
This is the Sony ECM-AW3. Not a handsome name but a nice mic! I have used this a tonne making iPhone Video Hero. The fact that you have no dangly cables is a bonus. Having worked a lot with professional sound people and heard great audio (your ears get tuned to it) I can say that the quality is ok but is not professional quality. It is acceptable quality but has no manual levels so if you are loud can overcook the audio. But if you are looking to go wireless on a budget I give this mic a thumbs up.
Wireless Microphone that Connects to any speaker?
My Glee Club is giving a performance on stage and I wanted to know if there was a wireless microphone that is a clip on or a headset that connect to any type of speaker wirelessly? Please give me web links! Thank You! I will give 10 pts. to best answer!
First microphones do not connect to speakers. They connect to amps that connect to speakers. Good quality wire less mikes cost a lot. Go to a music or band store and see what they have, may be you can rent the equipment you need…
I went to a christian church that had big plasmas and expensive technology?
i went to a christian church and there was all this expensive technology they had 3 42inch plasmas and expensive video equipment and projectors and wireless microphones. but the thing that boiled my eggs was the preacher says ”we should all collaborate with each other to get more things for the church”!!!wtf and around the block there are homeless people sleeping on the floor and hungry as hell f.uck christianity straight up they treat me like
That is not uncommon unfortunately.
How do you put a wireless microphone on a clarinet such that it captures the most sounds coming out of it?
Would 2 microphones work? one at the bell and another one on the clarinet lyer pointing toward the lower joint
Just put one on the bell and test it. Then try hooking it onto your shirt. Pick which sounds better.

My almost teenage son is in a hard rock band and they are considering buying a PA system.?
My son’s rock band has performed small gigs and they would like to invest in a PA system. The band has four members, a vocalist, bass player, guitar player and drummer. What kind of equipment will they need for small to medium size venues? Are there any brands that are better than others? Any advice would be great.
Like Cat says. Most venues who has bands or performers on a regular basis has their own PA. There are two reasons for this. One is that a sound system which will cover the basics at even a small venue is extremely expensive (we are talking several thousands of dollars for the bare minimum).
Then, you have the sound quality. The house PA is set up and tuned to the venue and it is manned with people who knows the equipment. If you get a small time road band, or someone who is just starting out, coming in with a low cost PA, then the place is highly likely to be in trouble: Bad sound.
The only time your own PA is the way to go is when you play venues where there is no house PA and either A. You have the financial muscle to have the right tools, or B. It is a very small venue which really don’t require much more than bringing the levels of the vocals up (think along the lines of playing at a local coffee shop or for a small group at a school function).
Buying used is not a good idea at all. Since we are talking expensive stuff here, these things have usually been played to death and beyond. You will till need to shell out a substantial amount of money, plus go through the hassle of checking and testing each and every bit – every speaker, cable, connector, inside the mixer, effects, boxes, monitors… Trust me – used sound systems will fail and at the worst possible moments … Unless it is well kept, high quality (expensive) stuff which has been serviced professionally.
A proper sound reinforcement system consists of the speakers which the audience hears and sees. Then you have the amps – lot of watts. 1000 watts per side is very, very modest. It is quite common to have more than this per side just feeding the bass bins/speakers (in small venues).
Then there’s the monitoring. The fold-back/sound going back to the stage so that the players can actually hear what they’re doing. Some use in-ear monitors, but even if you go floor based wedges, you are looking at a lot of money just here. Each singer needs at least one monitor. The same goes for any keyboard player.
As is the case with the FOH (the audience system), the monitors needs power amps (in-ear very little). This is a separate power system from the FOH.
Then there’s a mixer which can handle the FOH mixing, plus deliver monitor mixes to the band. Unless you want the mixer on stage, you will need a multi cable plus a stage box. Small time party/wedding bands can do with an on-stage mixer, but it is not at all ideal in a venue. The guy at the mixer will need to hear the sound coming out in front as he/she balances the mix.
Then you have microphones. One decent vocal mike is something like a Shure Beta SM-58. Not too expensive. But then you need mikes for the drums (anywhere from three to four and upwards), a mike for the guitar cabinet etc. You will need a DI box for the bass, lots and lots of cables and what not. Effects… Stands…
As you can see, this is not a simple plug-and-play, low cost kind of affair. It is nice to have some sort of amplification for vocals and keyboards in a rehearsal situation. This is something which can be dealt with by going used and low cost. But a full live rig? Nah, I would advice you strongly away from it.
Here’s what you could do. Go to any small to medium venue and talk to the sound folks. Just buy him/her a beer and you should be good to go. Just ask what they have for FOH (front of house) and monitoring. When you add the cost of that material up, you will probably be in the ballpark of a small house.
Our small pub/cover band rig (we use house PA when ever possible), is not that expensive. But just the mixer would have set us back 10 grand new. I’d reckon our small rig is around 25 grand.
The best thing is likely to play venues where there is a PA, and then hire/borrow equipment in those rare instances where there are none.
There is another issue too. Who owns the PA? Since it is going to cost you, how will this be handled once the band brakes up (this is unfortunately not an if, but a when type of situation).
Do feel free to contact me through my avatar here at YA if you have any further questions. And just to make this clear – I think what you’re trying to accomplish is way cool and I wish you guys all the best
Vocals, live shows?
What do I need? A PA system right? What exactly is that?
You’ll need a power amp and mixing board (or just get a powered mixing board).
2 speaker cables
Microphone and microphone cable
If you will be using a karaoke machine, you’ll need that and a cable to hook that in also.
Bare essentials to get you started. You will eventually want some vocal effects.. Maybe you can find a powered mixing board with that built in.
Edit- you can find packaged deals for PA’s in www.musiciansfriend.com- worth checking it out.
A good vocal microphone?
I’d like to buy a good quality vocal mic, but I don’t know where to start. I barely know anything about the difference between microphones :/ also I’d like to stay under $300, $400 max.
Thanks in advance
RODE NT-2 or RODE NT-1 (there are value packages that come with popfilter) its the creme de la creme, for that price.
Theres also the AKG perception 420 (i have the 220) which is cheaper but excellent sound quality and widely useable (also even for bass kick drum and guitars)
the Se X-1 is similar in price and capabilities to AKG, but Se’s name is more popular. Not definitely bigger or better.
Edit1: rode nt2000 is by far the best one and it costs just under 400 bucks. But i assume you do want some accessoiries like the phantom power source, popfilter and mic stand and a good quality cable. Together these accesoiries may cost about 20 bucks each.
Edit2: if forgot to tell these are all studio microphones. You didnt tell if you need one for live or recording. The best industry standard stage mic is the shure SM 58 and its used by everyone, i know. Bono from U2 uses it.
I need a good microphone live system?
i am in a garage band and we’ve needed a way for our singer to be able to sing over our guitars and drums. i dont really know what stuff is good, but i am lookin in the 100-200 dollar range. all i need is a way to hook up a mic to a amp or moniter so we can hear our singer
You can buy a vocal PA system. It should have a Jack for the microphone. They sell them on Ebay for about $80-$1000 depending on the brand and your need.
Vocal Coach for Training?
Anybody know of any good vocal coaches or trainers in the Miami, FL area? I’d like to start training my weird soprano 2 voice asap. It’s flat, and like…..very rarely do i ever hear vibrato unless i hold a note for a long time then it comes out slowly as i’m running out of breath. If I sing loud, I sound out of tune and there’s no control so my pitch is all over and dead-like. I sing low and everyone says I either sing like i’m whispering and they want me to scream in the microphone but my voice sounds horrible loud. Witness me on myspace/LLANOSK to get the idea.
Any suggestions, tips, for singing? Constructive criticism is welcomed to.
I wish i cud help but im living in singapore n i only know vocal coaches in singapore y not try searching it from google
may u can find the vocal coach
sorry cant help u coz im in singapore
