A couple of things about lapel and kylie microphones while preaching

A few random bits and pieces, from a preacher and a congregation member, not a sound engineer:

  • Kylie mics look stupid but they are by far the best sound quality, avoid stormy noises and pops from breathing and saying 'P' into microphones.

  • Kylic mics are hard to position just right so they don't rattle around and get annoying.

  • If there is a sound engineer, don't feel embarrassed about asking them to set things up, including positioninig your kylie mic.

  • Make super sure it is muted before you join in congregational singing, a personal conversation or go to the toilet.

  • Feed microphone cords (for lapel or kylic mics) through your shirt - it looks yuck to have cords flopping all over you. And tuck excess cord into your pocket.

  • Get a kylie mic cord clipped onto the back of your shirt collar.

  • If you going to preach with a lapel mic, wear a shirt that has something it can neatly clip onto. Bunched-up t-shirt with mic clip makes me sad.

  • Wear a best and get the brick that a lapel mic gets plugged into strapped to the BACK of your belt. I don't know what women speakers do at this point.
