Hello, Newbie to this forum and I have a question about something I have been pondering for a while. I play in a all acoustic band and we use large diaphragm condensers for vocals and instruments, except for bass. I used a D112 kick drum mic for a long time and it sounded great, however because we don't use stage monitors, the rest of the band was having difficulty hearing the bass. I decided to use a pickup and bass amp. I have never liked the sound from most any pickup and have always preferred mics. Anyway, for the last three months I have been using a K&K Bass Max pickup and Gallien-Kruger Backline 112 amp. The band loves it but I hate the sound. I have been wondering about the feasability of using a dynamic mic and plugging IT into the amp instead of the pickup. I have hesitated to try it without asking first. My thinking is that it is a amplifier and so it should work the same as a PA amplifier, shouldn't it? Has anyone tried this and if so, how well did it work? Also I would like to hear some feedback about what mic/amp combinations people have used. I don't own a dynamic mic rightnow, only two condensers, so if I use this method, I will need to buy a mic. Another reason why I wanted to ask first. Thanks for any advice!
