Hey everyone. I'm brand new to these forums and hoping that they will help me get a better of understanding of everything audio! So I'm going to be running audio for our school musical production. I'm trying to find out as much about the system as I can (even though I'm only going to be turning up and down mics as actors leave/enter stage). My first question is: What are the BEST mics for stage out there? We have a bunch of different wig mics, around the head mics, etc, and some are old Sennheiser, some are just random brands. IF we could spend a few grand on new mics, which would be the best to buy? And I've noticed that most wireless mics for stage come with receivers, BUT we don't use those receivers in the theatre. We have a dedicated receiver for each mic (16 mics/and receivers) that we can change the frequency on. They aren't like the small receivers that come with mics, and don't have antennas. Instead, we have 2 helical antennas that I suppose pick up all the mic packs. What are those antennas connected to? Sorry for the plethora of questions, but I'm EAGER to learn about all of this stuff! Any answers are greatly appreciated and it's great to be here! Thanks!
