Hello all

After seeing a bunch of pictures of bands onstage, I couldn't help but notice that they always have the stage mostly covered in fancy carpets. Ok, I can understand a mat under the drums, but what are these carpets used for?

Better grip so you don't slip? That's the best I can think of really.

grip. My band also runs leads going to pedal boards & the leads going to the soundguy under them, so we dont trip.

This is the primary reason I've used them in the past. I've also used them with large velcro strips to secure mic stands, and so that things with casters don't roll around.

Grip I imagine, as said already, and also so you don't get the slightly dodgy acoustics of playing on a flat, solid surface.

It's always in larger clubs and theater-sized areas that they have carpets. In larger halls, they play on bare-floored stages. How come? Not enough carpets?
