    Amazing Scott Colley here. Do you know what kind of microphone is mounted on the bass? (maybe with an H-Clamp)

    Because the "face of the mic" is covered by a foam wind screen, all you can really tell is that it's a dark small diaphragm condenser mic of some kind. Truthfully, much of the sound on this clip is about the placement, and the rest is all Scott just being Scott. While there is some difference between an expensive mic and a less expensive one, when jammed up against the bridge/top like that it's more about the player and the tiny are the mic is picking up.

    It’s a Schoeps with a supercardioid capsule.

    It sounds like a nice combo of mic & pickup.

    Mr. Colley had something to do with the Wayne Jones WJBPII.

    It's easy! I leave 'em straight up, for the most part.

    Definitely one of the superior bass preamps out there.

    He's using a different amp in the video. And still getting his great sound.

    Regardless of what he’s using, Scott Colley is a incredible player :) He was touring Billy Childs when they came to St. Louis. I was there and Scott was using a mic and the “house amp dejour” at The Bistro. It was a life altering/affirming experience.

    I saw him last night with Brian Blade and Edward Simon - so fun to watch!
    He had a small condenser mic on an H-clamp. I couldn't get a close look at it but it looked like it had a gold diamond badge on the side so probably a Neumann positioned below the bridge at the G foot.
    playing through a Grace Felix and into an Aguilar head. I didn't recognize the cabinet.
    Overall, the sound was lacking top end - tending to be muddier than I would like.
