For amplifying my bass I always use a mic. To minimize feedback risk during jazz gigs, I place my GK combo amp next to me, or even a little in front of me. That works great: the drummer and me can still hear the bass enough. Now I am considering a new setup, with the Acoustic Image Upshot (next to me or in front of me), driven by a separate amp head. But since the Upshot fires its sound upward, how would that work with a mic? Can I expect more feedback than in my old setup with the combo amp? To reduce feedback risk, could I place the Upshot at an angle, so it fires the sound more forward than upward? Any thoughts, any experiences are welcome.
