What type of mics would do you all normally use to mic jazz bands? I was just asked to mic a jazz band, but I have never had to do a jazz band. I figured I would mic the set and the amps for the bass and guitar, the piano, 2 mics for the soloist, and maybe 2 other condensing mics hung above the group? Or insead of hanging the 2 mics, if i can get more mics, just have one for the trumpets and one for the T-bones and so on... What do you all you? What type of mics do you normally use for this? I was thinking Shure PG57's for the soloists, PG52, 3 PG56's, and 2 PG81's for the set- though might use the PG81's somewhere else- And I have 2 Audio Technica AT873R's for the rest along with a bunch of standard Shure PG58 for the rest, which is why I might not use the 2 PG81's on the set. We have some amp mic's and piano mic's too, but I don't remember off-hand what they are. Other than that, we don't have that many mics, just enough to get by. How about you all?
