How do you guys set up all of your amps, instruments, and Mics? Do you just rely on the the guitar or bass amp with a preamp, or do you, instead, connect everything to the Mixer and run it through the PA? How about the drums?
usually depends on the PA for us, and the crowd size. minimum we mic up the vox, and kick drum and run everything else through amps. might mic instruments and whole drum set if there is a good PA/large crowd. but our drummers playing style is LOUDDDD compared to everyone else even though have huge cabs, so usually its not as big a deal.
