fans that are quiet

I need to get a small fan for air flow to keep my cooler, but need something that moves some air without being noisy or risk it being picked up by mics in close proximity or overhead mics. Any suggestion on which fans are super quiet and would work for a drummer?

I love this fan. I have 3 in my apartment and 1 in my rehearsal studio. Inexpensive, quiet, blows a lot of air, and so far they've lasted years without any issues.

I bought all of mine at Target, so if you're near one I would look there.
I have this same fan at my rehearsal space. I often forget to turn it off when I leave because I can't hear that it's on over any ambient noise

I use a generic fan that looks a lot like that. Small enough to fit in my gig bag.
Yup, I really like mine. When I went to look at fans, my dad went with me, and I swear this thing was pushing out twice the air than a traditional box fan, and it was small and cheap. I wish I would have bought two.

These are great and quiet for indoor gigs. If you are outdoors I would recommend https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=DChcSEwigreOm9aDaAhVHtcAKHe0IBXUYABANGgJpbQ&sig=AOD64_1itc0LwYCPP0Hotp6AqIjdcQZzhQ&ctype=5&q=&ved=0ahUKEwiJ_96m9aDaAhVq6oMKHbDpAToQwg8IuwI&adurl=

This fan is very strong, but directional so you can keep it from blowing into your overheads. It also has 2 outlets on the side. I plug my in-ear system and tablet into mine during gigs.
