Recording Upright Bass

After 35 years playing electric bass I got my first (lefty) upright bass a year ago. Still a long way from mastering the beast, but I've done a few recordings recently. Playing jazz and folk. All piz. (I worked on arco for a few months, started receiving death threats from the family.) Anyway, I'd appreciate any recording tips. So far I've gotten the best sound with a RODE K2 pointed at the bass side of the bridge, but I haven't really done a lot of experiments.
