jonpall Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 Hi guys, What do you think is a good volume level for singers that sing with a live rock band? Do you think it's wise to stick to about medium loud or maybe slightly louder, perhaps to save energy and reduce the chance of your vocal folds swelling due to excessive pressure on them for a long time? Or maybe it's actually wise to sing very close to your MAXIMUM volume so that the monitors don't feedback and the energy levels of the vocals match that of the band when playing live? Maybe that's a very important point or what do you think? However, sometimes I feel that my throat feels ever so slightly swollen if I've sun extremely loud for a long time. But then there are people who say that it's quite ok to sing close to your maximum volume IF you twang and support properly and use open vowels on high notes. So if volume level "1" is almost inaudible and "10" means as loud as you can sing, at what level do you think it's wise to sing for the most of the time when you're live and are fronting a rock 'n' roll band - and have to play 3 hour gigs several times a week?
