right i dunno if this is meant to be in here

me and my band are getting some recording equipment basically to get some demos down and for us to work on tracks abit easier

we thinking of the boss 8track cant remember what it is, possible br600 or something.

anyway

anyone got any advice on what mics we need how many etc and which mics are good that wont bust the bank cause we'd rather not fork out like 1,000 quid on mics if we dont have to cause lets face it, we're like 17 years old some work some at college.


the band is 1 vocalist, 1 drum, 1 guitar, 1 bass.


cheers

Well the shure 57's and 58's are good for the guitar and could be used for vocals aswell.

Does your mixer have phantom power?

i dunno if the br600 does but im sure the 900 1200 and 1600 do so guessing this will

Shure SM57 for amps and drums. Get as many as you can. Get one good condenser. You can use this for Vocals, Acoustic instruments, front room drum mic, etc.

Most of this has already been said, but I would suggest SM57s for micing everything unless you want a little smoother vocal sound. In that case I would recommend one SM58 for the singer. You can't really beat the reliability and low cost of the SM57/58. They're great mics. Even though I have access to other mics, I still prefer using an SM57 on a lot of my recordings.

those are the mic;s that are suggested in this book i have and sound control sell them which means we can get hold of them easily
