Default Drum Mics and Mixers

Hi, I've just bought my first set of drum mics and i'm using xlr leads with all of them (snare, 4 toms, bass drum and 2 overheads), why am I finding it so hard to find an inexpensive mixing desk with 8 xlr inputs? I dont want a massive desk with millions of inputs, i just want something that lets me plug all my mics in and mix them nicely before sending to the P.A. any ideas?

Look on ebay, I am sure you can find a deal there, just be sure to look at the seller's feedback.

ebay has some good prices on mixers
my friend picked up a Carvin 24 input (16XLR) mixer from Music Go Round for $250
I've always had good luck with Yamaha mixers, and I believe they have one out right now for around $250-$300 with 8 mic inputs
Behringer makes good stuff for the price, but their reputation for having components often go bad is a justified reputation- however rarely are they problems that can't be fixed easily.


My question is why are you getting a mixer to send only your drums to the PA? Or is this for you to sub-mix on and then it is being sent to the FOH system for the guy there to mix in with the rest of the band?

To be honest with you, you will never find something in the audio world that is both cheap and good quality.

If you want good audio quality and ability to tweak the end result on the board to what you want you should get a board with 5 EQ's per channel on it plus a 10 band EQ on the side to consolidate the sounds to blend with each other.

To get prices that places will beat, to save you some money, use Pricegrabber.com , Google product search and any music website you can find.

Hope it turns out nice for you.

Hey guys im needing help with this too. If you use XLR outputs/inputs or whatever for microphones , what do you use the other inputs for? Because there are 8 XLR connecters on that mixer , but it says there are 24 channels?
Thanks!

I think they take the tape input as one too and there are several more features wich aren't really channels but can be considered as one because they are inputs
