I've been drafted to record a rockabilly band next month, but I've never recorded a live upright acoustic bass before. I've been shooting ideas around in my head, but haven't figured a good way to mic it. I want to run it in thirds (mic left panned hard left, mic right panned hard right, mic centered perfect stereo) but not sure what mics to use. I was thinking about using two Neumannn condensers on the outsides and a beta57 in the middle to round out a nice sound, but I'm recording onto two inch tape, then dubbing into Cubase for finalizing. I've already got a crazy idea to do it in a hollow room with some auralex on the walls and corners, but still have a slight echo just to add a little bit of an eery sound to the mix. They sound kinda like Reverend Horton Heat, so anything sounding like that would work. Let me know what you think.
