Hey all,

So, we are having our first official 'band practice' with a drummer. Before, it was just me (guitar) and the bass player. The area we are going to be playing isn't very big. What do you guys recommend for placement of instruments, economy style.

4 members or 3?

Drummer in the back, Guitarists on either side, if one guitarist sings, then bass and guitar behind the singer on either side of drums, and singer in front. If you have a seperate singer, then, drums in back, guitars on either side, bass in middle of guitars, in singer in front.

Put them where you can all hear them, I have it set up so the amps are perpendicular to each other facing the drum kit, so the drummer can hear, and the guitarists can hear themselves playing.

Ibanez RG7321 Seven String
Epiphone Iommi Signature SG
Digitech Scott Ian Black 13
VOX Valvetronix AD100VTH

Thats not a bad idea. Has anyone tried this? And if so, does it work well?

It doesn't particularly matter, as long as you can see and hear each other and have room to move.

And yes, triangles and circles work well. However, sometimes it's good to set up like you are on stage to get a feel for it.

I wanted to do a stage setup, but I just don't have that kind of room.
