last night my band did a gig which went well, but the sound man was struggling to get enough vocal level without getting feedback. Now I know there are alot of techniques to try to stop the feedback, but I was thinking about mics in particular. The soundman used an SM58 on the vocals. Our female singer is not a belter and uses a lot of subtlty in her voice. Would having a hyper-cardoid mic help to get more level on the vocals. I think Audix do some nice ones. We could consider buying these and using them for our gigs. Any thoughts? Would the difference be negligable next to all the other factors which should be sorted?
