Thought i'd get the opinions of people who may have experience with this.
What is the best way to amplify electronic drums. Such as from bfd2, battery etc.
The thing that comes to mind would be to use a PA system that incorporates subs, mids and treble using a crossover, would this kind of frequency range be overkill or would it be needed to get the best sound out of the lows of bass/toms etc. and highs of cymbals.
I've been recommended a keyboard amp as a good thing to use for smaller locations, rather than a full pa system. But right now i'm using an "old" set of 7.1 computer speakers that is more than enough for practicing. Would a keyboard amp provide me a first step when i start gigging or would i be better off building a "mini pa" that incorporates a full range of speakers? (or does something like that already exist?)
Also, if i had a full PA system, would putting the electronic drums and vocals through it sound bad? I've played gigs where the sound tech put guitars, drum mics, bass through the PA andthe vocals just get drowned out. Will that always happen or was there just way too much of everything in the mix?
Any help with this would be much appreciated. Thanks
