just to clarify this is more of a gear question than Screaming
actully its only a gear question
SO DONT GO OFF AND SAY SCREAMING/GROWLING THREAD

so im gonna start doing backing screams in my band
and heres the deal i play lead

and i cant get alot of Volume unless i cup the mic
so would a instrument mic be so directional that it would pick up my screaming better and it would have some more volume?

or should i just stick to dynamic and build some sort of a hands free cup rig?

The cheap-ass walmart mic is what i'm using.

Make sure you do your screaming/growling right though so you don't **** up your vocal chords

Get Better PA, turn up volume.

If the mic' won't pick you up.

a) You're a terrible screamer.
- Work on your scream.
b) The microphone is crap.
- Get a new mic', an SM58 or something.

Sorry to be blunt, but that just about sums it up.

EDIT - Cupping = Faiiiil.

There are some good vocalists that do, but it's a bit stupid if you ask me. Just learn to do a decent scream rather than just cupping and using the gain of to microphone to 'rough up' the sound a bit.

Also, get a new PA like the other guy said, that will help the volume thing.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

dude

Cupping = Win
cupping = more apmlification= less strain on the vocal chords

i listen to Melissa cross
and since then ive never had a raspy throat even after hours of screaming
and my screams sound better
but there was a drastic drop in my volume
and back when i was doing the old way

my dentist actully told me when i was getting my fillings that my throat was so torn up that he thought i was developing cysts

so yeah not doing that no more

and i think melissa knows what shes talking about
she got randy from LOG to sound like a man unlike a girl
