    Hi Group -

    This is my first post in this section. Tomorrow I'm set to run sound for a high school jazz (horn) ensemble outdoors. I'm planning on using two 57's in a "Y" pattern for the group coverage. Also - another 57 or two for solos.

    Am I way off on the "group" mics? Any help appreciated. Thanks!!

    One more addition to the post - sorry!
    I also have some bg5.1 and sm81's available if I should be using condensers instead.

    What is your total horn config? How many sax, bones, and trup? How many folks you playing to? And what kind of style music.

    There will be 13 players. Some Sax, Trumpet, and other brass. Open air venue, stage is small - so they'll be scrunched together.

    Should be 250+ in the crowd. I've got 5x15' EON's for coverage.

    Use the sm81's. Definitely better than 57's.
    Divide the band in 3 like this, place the mics where the x's are

    Place them overhead of the band at about the same distance as they are from the outside edges. Or a little closer if this is impossible.
