I am new on this site. I know some about sound equipment (I can see I have a lot to learn). I know there are many threads already on this subject but there is also a lot that I do not understand in them. I am looking into getting some new microphones for my school. We need 2 new hand held wireless microphones for general use and 4-6 mics. for theater and musical uses. I do not know what to go with. I know there are many different brands and I do not know which is better for the price. The local audio store is trying to push Audio-Technica. Any help please. Also do so many people want to stay away from digital band microphones? I know those frequencies are more desirable for other activities like remote control planes and the such because of the mass number of vehicles you can run in a small area. I would think it would be similar for microphones.
