    I just bought a Workingman's 12 last week. Where would be the best place to put the Bag End S15D speaker when I hook them together? On the other side of the drummer or next to the WM 12?

    I also sing harmony so need to pick up a microphone. Will the SM 57 do or should I get the SM 58?
     
  2. I would put it under the WM 12 , I recently added a Bag End S12-D to my S15-D and absolutely love the combination . What a great little stack! The 57's are just fine by me .Its been my experience that they tend to give less feedback problems than many other more expensive mic's our band has gone through.

    Nice to hear you've got good tone. Speaker placement, just as selection, will be a matter of personal taste. Having someone else play your bass while you listen from different points in the venue works for me. Of course if your using a PA this becomes a moot point.

    I've got an 18" sub on top of my 2-10", looks odd but the low end sounds much more defined to me. The 2-10" cuts through very well no matter where it is.
     
  4. i thought the SM-57 was an instrument/amp mic. no?

    dhc, the SM57 is an all purpose mic. It's very popular for close micing cabinets because of its hypercardoid pattern. It picks up very little background noise.

    It is also a great vocal mic, particularly if you are in front of a monitor, the drums, or your amp. It is pretty sensitive(although not near as sensitive as a 58), but because of the directional pole pattern, as long as the other source of noise is not in direct line with it, it won't pick it up.
