Macca bass, Mic/DI or both?

Thank you for doing this and for all your great work. I have heard different accounts of how Paul's bass was recorded throughout the Beatles. Most say it was mic only (usually a D12, as well as the reverse-wired speaker on Paperback Writer and the C12/4038 combo on Pepper,) but I think I've also heard you say a DI was used later on. Can you clarify if/when a DI was used either on its own or mixed with a mic and also any other mics or techniques that you used. Thanks.

Hi, I never used a DI on Pauls bass as far as I can remember, I may have tried it later on but not used it. You have covered all of the other ways I recorded the bass. There never was a C12 / 4038 combo just a C12. Geoff
