THE BENEFIT OF USING IN EARS

I’ve been using in ears for quite some time now and honestly it has been a game changer for me. 

Here’s why:

I’ve always had an issue hearing my guitar. I used to play with a large wedge in front of me daisy changed to a singers monitor so my mix was very limited. On top of that, my ears just couldn’t pick up what I was trying to hear and everything else I had in my mix was either muddy or lost. On top of that, I’m pretty sure I’ve damaged my ears after years of listening to music in my headphones full blast in my youth.
To me, whenever I used a wedge the sound always seemed to travel out and never really directional to me. 
When the option of having my signal directly in my ears, I jumped at the chance, this was it! Finally! Being able to have what I want and mixed to my desire really allowed me to hear our band and work better with each other. At first, it was only myself and another musician with in ears, now our whole band has a body pack and have the ability to have their desired mix. 
In ears allow your team to hear and cooperate with each other on a different level, a little more closely than an open air monitor. The biggest plus is eliminating stage volume. More sound out in the mains for the congregation and less noise on stage, especially if amps are in a separate room.
You might be thinking, that sounds expensive though. Yeah, it is. But if helping your team sound tighter and able to progress while being on stage, then this would be a worthy investment. This goes for both musician and for singers. 

You have your top notch brands and your lower end. You will be able to determine what works best for your team depending on your church size and maybe even with a budget. Do some research!
What’s in my mix? I have a little bit of everything. The more dominate signals are my guitars, my vocal, piano, and my worship leader’s vocal, a bit of bass and drums and whoever may be leading for the day for some direction.
I hope this has shed some light on why in ears are beneficiary and how this can really improve team dynamics!

This is an overflow of creativity, knowledge, and experience. When given a talent, I quickly learned that it is for me to share. My passion is praising Jesus, and worshiping my peers. My goal is to help upcoming and seasoned musicians reach their full potential. I love music, I love to worship. Here is your opportunity to do this with me. This is a time for me to be practical, to go in depth, to be honest. To make a sound louder than my guitars or amp with my drive to see others succeed. An Honest Sound. -AO
