ContraSF, Contra Sound Forum was started in 1998 as a simple e-mail forum for
folks who run sound for Contra dances.
Dance organizers, Callers, Musicians, Dancers, really just about
anybody interested in audio production for any form of Folk Music is welcome to participate.
We entertain questions from the most basic up to fairly sophisticated.
Posts are appropriate for all age groups.
Contra dance sound has some demanding aspects:
A clear caller and music need to be heard on the whole dance floor, at modest volume.
The music is live and there may be several microphones wanting to feedback.
Venue acoustis are often poor.
Budgets are generally limited.
Sound equipment is often hauled to a dance, set up, run, taken down and stored in a spare room.
