I play in a rock band 'with a twist of sax' around Hampshire, Wilshire and Dorset. Our singer deals with the mix thru the PA going thru all the usual sound checks and real-time adjustments. I use a stand mic (shure 57). The prob is he puts the sax way down in the mix, probably around the level of the other vocal backing mics. To me this is too low. Even with the foldback speakers I can hardly hear myself and various sax lovers listening complain they cannot hear the sax. After a row with our singer (not recommended!) I gave up with the PA and now use my Boss guitar amp on the accoustic setting. Actually this works well and puts me in control. Anyway my view is that the sax in the mix needs to be very nearly the same vol as the lead vox mic which means I can stand well back when I need to be in the background but can move in closer for solos. But this means I have to transport the amp as well as my sop, alto and tenor .... oh, and deal with feedback probs / mic positioning. Anyways I would welcome thoughts?
