Reply To: Band Seating
Kate’s response was the most interesting I read. I never thought of having the stronger players in front to serve as a teaching example. Of course when experimenting with set ups, you won’t know what the sound of the band will be, and this could be both a good and a bad thing. A certain set up can either enhance the sound of a band ten fold or could even do the exact opposite, so of course experimenting before a performance is critical. And as Brian said, there is no real way that is set in stone for a band to be set up. Have you found any suggested set ups for a band with similar instrumentation since this was posted?
