Keeping the Drums low in the UprightBass Microphone

Hello Al !

If I record a Jazz Trio or Quartet in one single room, I want to have the Bass Player stand near the Drummer (because of the Feel) -
but - is there any Trick (Microphone Position, Shielding, or anything else... ) to keep the Drum Noise low in the Bass-microphone? Maybe a Mic Screen, or, what's the best method?

Thanks for your help!

PS: I'd choose maybe a DI Signal plus 2 - 3 microphones for choose.

Not really, I dont have any tricks, I put gobos around the drummer just small ones so everyone has good eye contact. I use two mics on the bass one at the f hole and one up by the fingers. Make sure everyone can hear well and then they should balance themselves. I rely on the musicians to let me know how well they hear each other. Most of the time its just minor ajustments. Al
