Blues=Life Performing at pub open mic sessions (42) RE: Performing at pub open mic sessions 18 Feb 12

Richard, you are so right about the SM58. I kept trying to type an 8, but these damn fingers kept putting in a "7"! Bad fingers, bad!

Shure says that 0-6" away works in loud environments, and 6" or more works for more natural sound. I always try to get folks to be able to put their slightly spread hand between lips and mic. And if someone stays to close? I turn them down. A lot.

I would say in this environment 6-8" is a good distance. I would also say to talk to the sound guy, and of course buy him a beer! He can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Make him your friend!
