personal monitor system for 5
I have been looking into getting in ear for the whole band but I am a bit unsure about what would be the best system to get. Any input?
We're using in ear monitors but instead of spending our money on wireless stuff we decided to use an ART HeadAmp 6Pro and a few cables. This might not be the best possible monitor sound but it saves a lot of space on small stages and it's very cheap compared to buying wegdes, amps, ... not mentioning weight.
If you've got the budget, get a PSM700 system from Shure for those members that move around and a P6HW for the drummer. Couple them with some E5's and you're golden.
That looks exactly like what I need but its a little pricey. I was hoping for nothing more than $1000.
Everyone I know who has used inexpensive in-ear systems has given up after a few months and either gone back to using wedges or broken down and spent the money for a better system. Now admittedly two guys I know keep the cheap system around for really bad acoustic situations with the wedges. There certainly are situations where the advantages of in-ear win. This may be a case of "buy once, cry once."
i totally know what youre saying. Ill probably end up breaking down. This is a college worship band and we set up every week in a gym. It is carpeted and has wall panels but it is still a huge box.
