Amplifying 4 djembes and dundun trio performing live

Postby gerardo-chile » Fri Apr 28, 2017 2:37 am

Dear All,
I am up to play live with some friends on an African ensemble consisting in 4 djembes and a trio of dunduns. We will be performing on a mid size theatre ( 1250 seats ) with a line array PA. So far we have been testing many setups for miking and eq ( every instrument has its own mic ), but I have some doubts regarding to ( or not to ) apply some compression in some ( or all ) of the djembes ( or maybe multi band compression ). Any hint will be really appreciated, specially if you already have some hint numbers for the ratio, threshold, attack and release.
Thanks in advance.
Gerardo.
