  • Playing Live With Electronic....What to do about the clicking noises?

    Hey folks,

    I have an acoustic set that I converted to electronic. Love it and it fits my lifestyle well as I can practice at 2 AM without waking up the family. I'd like to start gigging with it at some small local shops (like 30'x40' kinda places). My guitarist and I can go into the PA's, but concerned that the audience is just gonna hear a bunch of clicking from whenever I hit anything, be it the cymbals or the mesh heads. Is this a general problem? What do people do to overcome this? Just keep cranking it up? Is it hard to overcome or is it a genuine problem? I would think the problem is that much more difficult if you go with something mellow rather than heavy. Is there a solution?

    Thanks

    No. Unless you're performing to 3 people in a bathroom with a 5W PA.

    What do people do to overcome this?
    - Nothing. It's a non-problem.

    I would think the problem is that much more difficult if you go with something mellow rather than heavy. Is there a solution?
    - No "solution" needed.
    - Yamaha silicone pads if you're really that paranoid.

      Well that's good to hear! It's fairly loud when practicing which is why I use headphones, but guess in a social setting with PA it's not an issue. Thanks
