I'm having feedback problem with my set up. I have the classic Bose L1 system and an AT2020 mic. I just bought this with the intention of using this set up for guitar (duet) performance. I tried adjusting both the mic &/or the Bose to avoid the dreaded "loop" signal, but I just can not get rid of the feedback. I was told that the problem is rooted in the acoustic properties of the room, in which I agree. I was told to use a digital feedback eliminator (DFE) & maybe two mics , one for each player. Please advice & recommned a tried & tested DFE device that is not so expensive & can handle two microphone and maybe a pair of not so expensive cardioid microphones that do not require phantom power. Thank you so much.
JP, Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'm going to resolve this issue in phases. First, I will buy two SM58's & try if that helps. If not, then I'll probably gamble with something like Sabine Feedback Eliminator. As for the two mics, do I need a mic mixer, so that I could use them with my Bose L1 compact? As you know Bose L1 compact has one 1/4" Mic input & one 1/14" electric Guitar input. RT
