Make has a interesting tutorial that can make your percussion much easier to amplify in the live environment as well give you some interesting recorded sounds. This tutorial teaches you how to amplify your maracas with a piezo microphone to send them direct to a preamp. An interesting idea that we would love to hear the sound of. If anyone does this please post results! Check it out.
