While there’s no doubt that intentionally adding some echo or reverb to your band’s vocals can be a nice effect, the overbearing natural reverb and echo that results from the acoustical properties of certain concert halls, churches, and other venues can be a huge problem for your band’s overall sound and result in an unintelligible mess! If your band is all mic’ed up through the PA, playing and hearing mostly echo instead of instruments can make it really difficult to perform well, let alone stay in time and in tune with one another.
This article will give you an idea of what to do if you are faced with this situation and help you to prevent a reverb-filled venue from being your band’s worst enemy.

Next time reverb is an extra instrument in your band’s sound, try out these tips!
