Stage Setup for Sound People

Wires
  • Kate - Piano/Guitar/Harmonica/Flute
    • Mic/boom for harmonica and possibly flute
    • XLR for guitar DI
    • Whatever is needed for the piano that will be used
  • Dave - Fiddle
    • XLR for on-board fiddle mic
    • Phantom Power
  • Bill - Clarinet/Tenor Sax/Dumbek/Banjo Uke
    • Single Mic/Boom
  • Stuart Kenney - Bass/Banjo
    • XLR for Bass amp
    • XLR for banjo DI
Monitors
We'd be happy with at least two monitors, one for Peter (and the bassist if present) and one for Dave and Bill. A mono mix to the monitors is okay, a separate mix for each monitor is even better, if you can swing it.
Stage Plot
We're used to having the piano at stage left, fiddle in the middle, winds to the right.
Keyboard
We will need a keyboard - with its pedal and stand. Weighted, touch-sensitive keys (preferably 88 of them!) are a must - most electric pianos (as opposed to synthesizers) have these features. Some typical names:
  • Roland FP-8
  • Technics P-30,
  • Yamaha DGX-500A

With an electronic keyboard, if the piano cannot have it's own monitor mix, a separate monitor just for the keyboard will be needed .

Bass Player
When Stuart Kenney joins us as our bass and banjo player, he will need one of the following 2x10 bass cabinets:
  • SWR
  • David Eden
  • Trace Elliot
  • Peavey

If a 2x10 is not available then a 4x10 will work. Most rental houses carry one of the above.Â

If possible, we prefer a separate monitor mix for bass and piano.

Recording
