Recently I've started jamming with my 2 mates, a sax player and a piano player. We are planning on starting a jazz quartet maybe, once we find a jazz drummer who is avaliable. Thing is, I would love to use my double bass in our jamming sessions, but the only problem is I would not be heard at all, soI have had to use my bass guitar all the time, which is fine but I would rather use my Double Bass. The problem is though, the double bass is not mine, its my schools, which means I can't just start drilling holes in the bottom of it to place a mic. Because they will probably notice a great big hole in the body of the bass. Another thing, could I just run it through a normal bass amp? Or would I have to buy somthing else to make it work? Apologies if i'm asking a stupid question, I don't really know much about amps mics etc. tl:dr Need detachable bass mic and would I be able to run it straight through a regular bass amp?
