Upright Bass Micing: Placement & Mics

Al,
Love the bass sound on Diana Krall's "Love Scenes"...
No doubt GREAT bass player (Christian McBride) but it sounds AMAZING, what Mic and placement did you use and compressor...
Thanks,
Michael Keith, Huge fan..

Upright Bass Micing Techniques

Al,

You get such a rich, even, wide sound on upright bass. Could you speak a bit about how you approach mic position and technique?

Thanks so much for your time on GS and sharing your insight!

I use two Neumann M 149s on the bass, one on the f hole and one up by the fingers. I put both mics into a Summit TLA and compress about one DB.Thats about it, it helps to have a good bass player with a good sounding bass
