I see a lot of pickup / mic combinations here where the pickup usually is responsible for the 'string' aspect of the sound, and the mic for the 'body' component of the sound. Anyone do it the other way around? At a rehearsal today, the piano player and I were breaking down my sound, trying to isolate some issues we were having. Turns out, when he's standing where I'm standing (at the bass) he hears plently of the attack of my notes - the pop of the fingerboard, etc... however, when he's closer to the amp, he just hears the fundamental. I'm using a realist on my carved Christopher, and it's very dark. I'm wondering if a small mic near the end of my fingerboard would help amplify that part of the sound. I could blend the two with a Raven Labs unit. Worth the try? Any mics anyone would suggest? Am I nuts? For what it's worth, the bass by itself sounds fantastic so this would strictly be an amplification issue - and mostly for big band settings. Thanks in advance.
