Jesse Sendejas (Days N Daze)
SPB: Is there a special technique you use to optimize the sound of your banjo when playing clubs?
Sendejas: It's just me layering instruments in the recordings so we've only actually had a banjo player play with us live a handful of times, and usually all acoustic so sound wasn't an issue. John Warmb of Rent Strike did play banjo for us a while back at Neumos in Seattle and whatever they did sounded great. Think they just threw an SM-57 in front of 'em. I'm not great with live sound as I've been playin' in an acoustic band for the last decade, but yeah, I guess throw an SM-57 on it!! Maybe cut some of those highs out.
