I'm starting to do a little session work here and there, and I'm wondering whether I should get my own mic that I bring with me, or just use whatever's at the particular studio. Same deal for live work - my amp gets miked now and again when I play live, but I've never brought my own mic along. As per the subject line, I play a P-Bass with TI flats. I currently own an Ampeg B100R but I'm planning to supplement with a real tube amp - probably a B15, B25 or V4. Does this setup cry out for a particular mic? Or should I not even worry about this? I guess what got me thinking about this was that I know a lot great bassists have recorded with the B-15, and I assume they've been miked, right? And if I'm trying to bring as much my own tone as possible, it occurred to me that maybe I should have my own mic. As you may have gathered, I'm pretty mic ignorant!
