Does any one have any experience with using small mics with double-bass such as the Audio-technica AT8532 or AKG406C or any other attachable mics? Over the years I've used pick-ups by B. Berry, Fishman, Underwood, & Polytone. I've had pretty good luck with a Schertler on my German carved bass and a Realist on my '61 Kay, but now I've got the mic bug. Also, to anyone interested, I've been using an Acoustic Image amp (actually a prototype without the preamp) for about three years now and it sounds more natural than any other amp I've ever used, including Polytone, G.K.,& SWR. Other musicians,even drummers, have commented on the clarity and fullness of sound. I'd like to hear from anyone using Acoustic Image with the Schertler or Realist pickups to compare notes. Also any advise about the mics would be most welcome.
