I'm planning on trying a clip on condenser mic. The preamp ive been using is a tech 21 sansamp BDDI. It works well with piezos into a bass amp. I plan on getting a phantom supply to run the mic straight into my amp just in case the sansamp doesn't sound good. My rig is a Genz Benz shuttle 3.0 with the extension cabinet, so its pretty clean. I also have an fdeck pre. Let me know what you think.
