I hope I post that at the right place...
I would like to find some material to amplify my flute for playing with other powerful instruments (drums/sax...).
I have an amplifier which is basically made for acoustic guitar and voice (AER 60 if you know that...) that I intend to use also for my flute. Does anyone know if there are risks of damages for such an amplyfier (due to impedance issues or whatsoever...); I would also like to get a microphone, but I have no idea of which kind... could anyone help me?
all the best!
I use a Countryman earset microphone . Its awesome! Its great because I can change flutes & use the some mic.
You will need some kind of effect box (eq/reveber/delay & phantom power).
I use VoiceWorks from Tc Helicon (its has alot of effects)
Another good alternative (cheaper:-) is VoiceTone Create.Its around $250.
Your amp is fine.
Thank you Geni,
I had a look: I suppose it is the e6? I have also seen the cheaper Isomax Headset also from contryman. Do you know how it compares to the e6?
thank you again, that solution seems very interesting
Specifically, which version of the E6 do you have: the E6 (directional) or the E6i (omni)?
Also which sensitivity did you choose (there seems to be three levels rated in terms of
I got the directional. (Omni will pick everything)Sensitivy..I got the medium one.
You should order it from a local store, so you can try it..and return it if you don`t like it.
