Hi, a bandmate of mine has been recording bass on a good fender through a decent head/cab setup. We're unsure of a few things such as: 1. what are good mics for recording bass guitar? We have sm57's, e606's,which work well for guitar, but don't know if they're the best for bass. 2. we'd like a thick sound that "pops" out of the speakers (without clipping) rather than just being low and muddy and really not adding any bass, as in punch (instead of just low frequencies)...any suggestions? We can get a good sound with the above mics, but like I said, we'd like for it to jump out and spread thickness and rumble throughout the mix rather than low, paper-flat hum. Any pointers will be received gratefully. Thanks!
