Recording Double Bass

There don't seem many videos on this subject, so I thought I'd make one. In other videos, some of the differences between microphones, and even microphones of radically different prices, was actually quite subtle. To be honest, I usually have a goto mic for recording double basses - an AKG 414, so in this video I deliberately looked for alternatives. Before the audio, I've discussed some of the features of double basses that can help or hinder you once you know them.

I actually got a surprise with the mics I chose. The list was:

Recording double bass (arco) with limited equipment.

I'm planning on working with a group soon that has a double bass player, so I'm looking for suggestions on a good mic setup for recording a double bass. However, I have very limited equipment at the moment.

**By the way, I don't have many microphones because most of my equipment is more focused around electronic-sounding modern heavy rock. At the time, it seemed more effective to have guitars and tube amps and midi controllers and such... I'm just getting a little tired of that style, and I'm trying to do some classier music.

Recording: Classical Double Bass

Hi there! What a great forum!

I'm a total beginner when it comes to recording so I need some advise. I'm looking on making a video DVD recording of myself playing for an upcoming audition. I'm a classical double bassist (bowed) so I need a microphone that would work well for a low pitched bowed bass instrument, I'm also not looking to break the bank.

advice about recording double bass

Hello everyone, I want some advices recording bowed double bass. I am a professional solo doublebassist and an amateur recorder and I want to record some solo double bass with my music. Right now I don't have too much money to invest in a decent microphone like Neumannn but Im looking for a 300 dlls mic which can help me have a decent recording sound of my instrument.
I don't play pizzicato often, I mostly play with my bow, here's a link of my playing: [youtube:efd1cfc203]…]
