Hello, I'm Jack and studying a music tech degree in London. I'm currently working on my recording portfolio and am planning to record a jazz trio of double bass, guitar and drums. However, I dont have any previous experience of recording double bass. My first thought would be a condenser, possibly a U87(?!) around where the player plucks the strings (as I would like to capture the high-mid slapping nuances for their percussive quality). And also maybe a D112 (or is that a bit crap?! :roll: ) to capture the low end going into a TLA valve pre-amp for warmth, not sure what model exactly, sorry! My main concern is the mic placement, any ideas guys? I'm new to this site, looks cool though, that JP / McCheese thing was amazing, read about 6 or 7 pages. That dude really doesn't have a notion does he! Makes me feel a little lighter about my recording knowledge, sorry JP!
