I don't know if there are any drummers here, but what is the deal with drum mics and a PA? My drummer is getting 8 mics soon, but we don't know what sort of PA would be good and how to set it up. Help?
A regular PA system would work, just make sure you have a mixer and an input box with enough XLR jacks.
you'd be best off to get a mixer with a buttload of inputs, and then a power amp to power it. And you'll need speakers. Here's a good idea, go to your local music store and ask them. They'll be able to explain everything to you.
