  • Band all playing with headphones

    Hey so since I have a ton of gear to move and tear down etc, I would rather keep any band practice in my place. I live in a condo so I cant have anything loud (PAs, amps etc) so everything would need to be headphoned up. Drums, guitars, bass etc.

    what gear will i need to run everything through? some type of hub I am sure.

    thanks

        Your best bet is to find one used.

          I poked in the forum not so long ago in search for a similar answer. Here is what i found out.

          Jamhub came up but it is a bit expensive indeed! There is a similar option which is the OZ Audio Q-Mix HM-6 which has been re-branded has the Mackie HMX-56.

          Another option that came up was the combination of a headphone amp and an audio mixer.
          You can get for example this heaphone amp : Behringer Microamp HA400, for around 25$. Then search for a used mixer. You will plug all your instruments in the mixer and feed the line out to the headphone amp. This will accommodate 4 musicians and everyone gets a volume control (on the HA400). You could also use cable spliters to accommodate more musicians if they have low impedance headphones or don't need that much volume. Someone suggested that you put a microphone in the middle of the room to allow communication without removing the headphones which i think a good idea.

          Good luck!

                put a microphone in the room so it picks up everyone talking - usually the middle of the room....this way you can converse with each other without taking the headphones off.

                  This can be particularly useful if you are wearing noise isolating headphones or in ear monitors (or useless if you use open headphones).

                    Get the JamHub if you can, used would be worth a look. You won't be disappointed.

                        When we did this...everyone had their own mic. Jamhub allows this but having at least one mic in the room is a must for communication. That said...this is a good technique for a band using a full IEM system on stage too. Just point the mic at the audience & give them their own channel on the console so you can interact with them appropriately. Works great.

                          A doubt came to my mind... Do you need a pre-amp for the electric guitars when using a mixer?
