Title: what kind of machine do puppeteers use while speaking through microphone?
Post by: squirrely on May 17, 2013, 08:52:44 am
I mean a Karaoke machine or just microphone hooked up to speakers.  I am finally getting better and need something so people can HEAR me now.  The only thing I can think of and buy for now is a karaoke machine.

I don't feel you really need a Karoaoke machine.  It is important though that you get a head set microphone. Remember you hands are busy so you can't be holding a mic and putting one on a stand and expecting it to pick up your voice is not going to work. :)
