Sorry if this has been asked before but I can't find a relevant thread on it. We are a two entry primary with a single school hall, wooden floor, it just about takes all our children squeezed together from Nursery to Year 6. High ceiling, a smallish stage at the front and no curtains. We have a good, functioning sound system with two wireless hand-held microphones, and I am told they are the cheapest of the cheap, no wonder it struggles to pick things up. We do productions, 3 times a year, plus all the class assemblies and concerts on the top. It's beyond me why has nobody thought of getting decent stage mics, and I am no expert in shopping for these. Any recommendations out there as for what type of systems work best and what brands are worth buying in these austere times that are good value for money? Is renting viable (quite pricey!)? Any second hand shops worth looking in in London? I would appreciate any form of help on this. Thanks.
