I just got a new mic, and gave my old mic towards backup vocals. With the two mics, along with a bass and two guitars running through the pa we're having hardcore unwanted feedback. Any solutions?

cut holes in the walls and put the speakers in them? thats what i did for my prac room and it gives me a heap of extra space ^_^

do you understand what feedback is?



try turning the gain on your mics down on the mixing board.

Try moving the amps around so that the mics aren't directly in front of them.

*moved*

is there a graphic eq(i think thts what it is)?

the bassist in our band is sort of a genius with techno and pretty much everything...(hes in mensa and going to oxford uni)
whenever we get feedback he fiddles with the eq settings and he sorts it out so theres no more feedback...

sorry i couldnt be more specific...

if its extremely high pitched turn the highs down on the mic, and if its low pitched turn the low/bass down...
