Hello all. After 2 1/2 on the comeback trail, I finally got into a band that actually performs! (jazz, blues, rock and fusion). Now, I have some heavy duty learing to do! I will be playing trumpet, keyboard and light percussion (hopefully in that order!). I need to purchase some equipment, and know absolutely NOTHING about microphones. I would like to do some research into microphones before I walk into the local music store. Not that I don't trust the folks there...they have not steered me wrong yet...but they ARE salemen after all! The microphone I need will be used for trumpet, light percussion (claves, guiro, etc) and possibly backup vocal. Does anybody have any advice for me before I go looking to buy one? I am kind of hoping that somebody will know of a good web site that I can look at to learn a little about this stuff. Thanks in advance.
