I would have agreed with you in general terms in an orchestral context, where a double bass (non-amplified, naturally) requires a spot mic. However I recently found that a hypercardioid dynamic mic, usually intended for kick drum and bass cabinet duties, can do a very good job of keeping the rest of the orchestra out of the double bass.

This is the mic used...Avantone Pro

I might be able to post a sample in a day or two...
