Hi, First of all I am not a rocket scientist so please use the KISS formula on me! Here,s the deal and I dont even know if I am where I need to be to leave this thread. OK, I play bass and want to practice my vocals. I dont want to record. I am interested in a nice boom stand and good microphone. What else do you see that I dont? Cables! How do I hook up a microphone? Do I use my bass amp? Do I have to get a cd and amp separatly for this microphone? I dont want any interferance between my playing and singing. I just want to sit in my chair while practicing, play music and sing along into a microphone. Do I need a DJ set up? I dont know. Really would appreciate some feedback. This is a big deal to me. thanks , Mark renner.
