    Default Mic for Cajon

    I joined a band as a percussionist. My main instrument is a cajon. Are there opinions about what would be a good mic to use with it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jack

    If I were to attempt it, I’d use a Sure 57 or 58....probably start with a 57. May need 2 mics to get the full sound; one behind to capture the bass and one in front to capture the slap sound off the tapa.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    I never would have thought of using TWO mics. Love your sig, BTW.

    I bought two Digital Reference Instrument mics. One of my friends said that they would work well. I would have tried them tonight, but practice was cancelled. I think I'll take them to the theatre where I volunteer and see how they sound through the PA there.

    I FINALLY got to try my mcis last night. It turns out that one of them stuck in the sound hole works well. The rest of the band was happy with the results.

    Cool Jack. I was wondering which solution you would go with.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
