Tracking upright bass


Recommended Posts

I have never done this before, what is my best bet? I have a large diaphragm tube condenser, an sm57, and a pickup on the bass.


Any suggestions?


Yep, three:

1. Be careful!

2. DI the pickup

3.* Read this: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1277621/how_to_mic_an_upright_bass.html?cat=15

sounds like good advice to me.


Though my father played the upright bass for a living, I have no personal experience miking it. Point 2 is a no brainer though.
