Upright bass (double bass, acoustic bass)
What are some effective ways to mike an upright bass (standup bass, double bass, bass viol, doghouse bass, acoustic bass)?
Suggestions for recording an overdub:
* GLM-100, CM-700 or CM-200A about 4 inches under the bridge, 3 inches away, aiming at the bridge. This gives a full, close-up sound.
Suggestions for PA, or for recording to reduce leakage from other instruments::
* CM-200A or CM-700 3 inches from the narrow part of the G-string f-hole (right at the top edge of the sound hole).
