Hello, I've got a question about to boost the signal coming from my condenser mic so that my amplifier is louder.
I'm not sure where to start so I'll start with my rig. I have a JTS NX9 condenser instrument microphone, a Behrigner Xenyx 502 mixer-preamp, and a Kustom Sienna 16w acoustic amp. The microphone as an on-board AA battery for power, or it accepts phantom power.
When I plug the microphone directly into the amp, I get a lovely clear sound, but its not very loud. When I run the mic into the little mixer, the volume is increased substantially but I get lots of hiss and problems with feed back.
The acoustic guitar amplifier, when I plug my steel string guitar into it (that has a pickup), can get loud and clear, so I know the amplifier itself has the loudness and clarity I require.
Is there some way I can do the same with the microphone but without the hiss and feedback? ( P.S. I have the amp facing the audience and I sit behind it, so the amplifier does not project into the microphone.)
