    Microphones Shotgun Mics

    These are the choral mics I have as well, but there always seems to be issues with them getting caught up on scenery, having feedback issues, and being too far upstage when the students move past the hang location (just upstage of our first electric). They've been fantastic for our choir events...

    Also, is there any difference between the shotgun mics being sold for film/camera use and those used on stage? Thanks!

    Microphones Shotgun Mics

    Thank you, Dave! We do have a few PCCs that I usually mount near the apron but they don't seem to pick up the kids that well. Part of the problem is that their blocking tends to be further upstage. (That is, most of the time until the choreographer moves them all downstage for a number and they...

    Microphones Shotgun Mics

    I'm interested in purchasing two shotgun mics to place on either side of our proscenium arch to aid in picking up the ensemble in high school productions hosted at my facility. Any specific suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    I care. I still have to work in this situation. That's why I'm asking for suggestions.

    Hiring a New Position

    Does anyone have any suggestions regarding what to call two ATDs?I'm under no illusions that I will be able to prevent the splitting of the position, but if I have to deal with it, I'd like to at least have some say into titles. I feel like it will affect the labor flow. I'm the TD. There are...

    Hiring a New Position

    It's a theatre - owned by a school district with regular school events, professional show season and rentals. I'm not the one that wants to make it into part-time. I've been arguing against it. And yes, they want to remove the benefits. (You're preaching to the choir.) I've been worried that...

    Hiring a New Position

    Hello everyone! My ATD is resigning and I will need to hire a new assistant. Currently it is a full-time position but there has been talk of splitting it and making it into two part-time positions. Has anyone had any experience with this sort of situation? And if so what were the titles? We've...

    Frequencies & Old Equipment

    Thank you, BobHealey. Have you heard any updates on the next FCC axe to the frequency bands?Also, anyone have any good reference sites for headset pack repair? There's a massive pile of Telex headsets in a box labeled "repair" but I don't have the foggiest what is wrong with them or how to...

    Frequencies & Old Equipment

    Could someone help a somewhat sound-illiterate girl out?I've got a lot of equipment in storage that I'm not using and would like to purge. The thing is that I have only been running this theatre for 8 months and I don't know what is tossed in storage due to being in the wrong FCC band and what...

    Thank you, Alex! I will give that a try. :)

    Serious Volume Issues

    Thank you Muzicman, but I've done that as per the manual. It didn't make a difference in volume. Is there any way to boost it? My crew and I have such a hard time hearing between the two systems.
