I've been wondering this for awhile now. I've been noticing all of the 'metalcore/breakdown band' (or whatever new retarded genre name someone decides to make up) bands have their mics duct taped. Usually it's in some neon color. What is the point? A friend of mine who is into that whole 'metalcore/breakdown band' thing has his mic duct taped as well. He says, "It helps with feedback." Is this true? I honestly don't see the point and I kind of think it looks stupid. I myself am I vocalist, but I haven't duct taped my mic, or noticed much feedback.
