FAQ #2661 Updated October 30, 2008


Which microphone, and how many, would you recommend using to best mic a choir of 30 on risers, outdoors using sound reinforcement for a crowd of 300 people? any suggestions for placement or other ideas for success would be greatly appreciated


Two cardioid condenser mics of the same model, each with the A81WS windscreen. Mount both on the Shure A27M stereo mic mount with the mics in an X-Y positioning (explained on the A27M sheet).
