I'm in the worship band for a college Christian organization; we have 2 guitarists (electric and acoustic) and two singers, and we usually play in a room that holds about 50 people--so a small place in live music terms.
Recently our singers have expressed interest in wireless mics, so I'm doing some research on our options. Budget is a major consideration, but in any case I'm looking for some information on pricing and brands. I talked to a guy at Guitar Center and he was immediately trying to sell me a $400 mic and said that anything cheaper was a waste of money. I don't trust his opinion because of his stake in my decision.
I saw this
on Amazon; if something like that was of acceptably good quality, it looks like it'd be perfect. We need 2 mics.
As I said, we keep the volume pretty low, and while I'd like to buy something that can be used as we grow and play in larger places for bigger crowds, I don't think we have a need for a top-of-the-line mic. As long as it's not going to cut out or sound staticy, it'll probably be fine. Range shouldn't be a big issue, the mic should never be more than 30-40 feet from the receiver.
Are these mics sufficient, or will I be dissatisfied? What specific models would you guys recommend?
