Karaoke Fun! Singing TipsMicrophone Tips: Mic Technique 101
"What's the buzz, tell me what's a happenin"

We invest a lot of money in high end equipment
to help you sound your very best.
Our microphones are no exception!

Our mics are EXTREMELY sensitive unidirectional instruments. They do not pick up surrounding sounds. They only pick up the direct stream of sound from your lips to the sensitive element inside the head.

Before singing, speak into the mic to test if it's on. We'll activate the mic and adjust the levels for you.

Please don't tap, bang or blow into the mic. That could damage the sensitive element and they can cost a lot of money to replace.

It is important to hold the mic in front of your mouth at about a 90° angle a couple of inches and slightly to the side of from your mouth for best sound quality. Do not cup the head of the mic. This creates muffled distortion and often, severe feedback.

DO NOT put your lips on the mic EVER! It will make you sound YUCKY, MUSHY, BLURRY, MUFFLED, AND the your voice will become an amplified mess of BUZZ sounds! ack! We want you to sound your best! Hold the mic and inch or two from your mouth and we will give you all the volume you need to sound your best. If you hold the mic to your lips, we are forced to turn the mic down because of the awful buzzing noises this creates.
