Recording double bass and cello

    I'll be recording a cello, but it will be played as if it were a double bass, so, it won't be bowed.

    I'm having trouble getting a clean sound without compensating the sound. It sounds too bassy, and if I turn up the treble I get some noise.

    I'm using a very simple set up: SM58 microphone connected to a Behringer EuroTrack. The recording software is Cubase SX 2.0

    Any idea of the settings I should do to have a well-balanced sound? I'm positiong the microphone close to the bridge.

    I think it is just something in my equalisation, but I've tried lots of different settings, and I'm beginning to think I have to change some stuff on my Behringer mixer, I just don't know what exactly.

    Right now, the bass is turned down all the way and the treble is a little past 3/4 of the way. I later add the bassier sound with the equalisation in Cubase.

    Anyway, I appreciate your response.
