I've been working on singing and drumming for the past few months and I've made great progress. I've experimented with many different positions for the mic, but I still haven't decided what is the best place for it. I have a boom stand with a gooseneck attachment. I've been searching for videos and pictures of singing drummers to get some more ideas and see if there was any kind of consensus on what the best place for it is. I found a great video of Don Henley playing and singing Hotel California. I also found a video of Karen Carpenter from the Ed Sullivan show, but it looked like it was lip-synced. I also found some old Night Ranger videos with Kelly Keagy. On those videos, Kelly has the mic left of his throne and he turns his head toward his left shoulder to sing (see the music video for "When You Close Your Eyes" for an example). For my usual configuration, I have the boom stand directly behind my back and the boom stand/gooseneck drops down over my head. I have to position the mic relatively high and angle it down to keep it from being in the stick area. This setup is relatively comfortable, but it is not as good for crowd visibility since it covers much of my face. Recently, I tried putting the mic to the immediate left of my throne (like Keagy). At first I thought it would be uncomfortable, but it wasn't too bad really. I played Message in a Bottle using that configuration and I played it well, even though I was blindly hitting the tom toms when it goes "I hope that someone gets my..." (Fun song to sing and drum...) On stage, I will probably be rotated 45-90 degrees from the "usual" drummer setup. I'm keeping the left side of my kit relatively free of cymbals since it allows for better visibility and it's harder to hit the mic with a stick. I like the "Kelly Keagy" setup since it allows me to use a regular boom stand and have the mic angled upward rather than downward. This setup seems to allow for the best crowd visibility. I'm not too sure how comfortable it will be in the long run though and if it is really good to be twisted any more than you already have to be much of the time to sing and play drums. I'm interested in any comments or advice about vocal mic positioning for singing drummers. I'm also interested in hearing about the configurations that singing drummers in this newsgroup use. One more thing, I'm not going to use a headset mic, so don't give me that advice. Dan L.
