Hi everyone, We do a song fest every year at my camp where the groups take songs and change the words to be judged by the camp staff. Last year, the judges (in the back of the room) could not hear anything. I decided that I have to make it easier for the judges to hear, and that I would need to figure out how to get better mics. Last year, we used 4 hand held mics on mic stands. I know that obviously these do not pick up very well (especially when they are at the front of the stage and people are dancing all over the place). I was thinking about using hanging mics, but I realized that the pipes are too high, and, since we don't have a fly rail, it would take a lot of work to hang mics (especially for one day). So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a good mic type that I can use to pick up kids around the stage. According to the website, the stage is 22 feet deep, so I wuld need a mic that would pick up both people standing close to them, but also if they were all 22 feet back. Thanks in advance, and if you cannot understand what I'm asking, please just tell me and I'll rephrase something.
