Hi I have experienced several problems with my microphones and I wonder if anyone on here can help me diagnose it.
I have two microphones (both in the $30 range) and two mic cables, and I am using them with a Fender Passport 300 PA system.
Problem # 1 is that I cannot seem to raise my mic volume very high without feedback (I also sometimes play backing tracks through the Passport), even though I don't position my mic directly in front of the speaker system.
Problem # 2 is that no matter what combination of mics and cables I use, the mic just randomly drops out and this is something I really want to avoid during a live performance.
I am aware that getting a better mic like a Shure 88 is ideal but I simply don't have the money for it. I don't think the PA is the problem because I never experience sound dropout with the instrument or backing track channels on it. Any help or suggestions?
