    I saw Missy Raines last night on PBS and she did some awesome bass playing. Just her and another guy on guitar who was equally talented. I loved the tone she was getting out of her bass and microphone set up on stage. It looked like her mic was a Shure Drum Mic (maybe a 52) mounted on her tailpiece someway. Anyone know anything about her set up? What mic she uses? and how she mounts it to her tailpiece?

    Missy's presence is all new to me, but my comment is on the mic. In a duo situation you could use almost any sensitive mic and get good results. The real problems start to come up when the sound pressure on stage starts to cover you up acoustically.
  3. Agreed. Even jazz trios are louder now than they were in "the old days".
