Feedback Fighters?

I recently purchased a Shure 55SH Series II Mic. I have been using it to the side of my L1 and am getting a little feed back. I have the T1 channel set to Shure Mic SM58.

My main problem is I can't seem to get my voice into the music mix. I think if I get in front of the system I could get some blending help. Of course in doing that, I will be opening up to more feedback.

Please list for me every feedback fighting technique I can use, such as best T1 eq setting, how far to be in front of the L1 and any other tips will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Dance Host,

Your Shure 55SH Series II has a cardioid polar pattern.

One common recommendation in the battle with feedback is to use a microphone with a hyper-cardioid or super-cardioid polar pattern. These are far less prone to feedback. You could probably use one of these to the side of you L1® and have less feedback than you are getting with the Shure 55SH Series II.

Shure makes the Shure Super 55 Deluxe Vocal Microphone

This has the vintage look of the 55SH Series II plus it has a super-cardioid polar pattern.

We have an article that goes through the principles and recommendations about feedback here.

See: Microphone Feedback.
