Need Recommandation: Bass + Amp + Mic

Hello everyone,

This weekend, I'm recording bass for my future album. I want to go rent a bass + amp + mics.

I play reggae-ish music.
So I'm looking for recommendations for a Bass Amp + Bass + Mic to rent in order to record all of that.

What are the well-known winner combinations for bass?
(ideally, an amp smaller than a fridge, or it wont fit in my Tercel 98 haha)

Thanks guys

I always liked RE-20s on bass cabs. Not sure about the bass amp though.

Hi Simon,

If you search for "reggae bottom end" you'll find a recent thread that will probably help you. There's some great advice from many posters, including a reggae music engineer.

Good luck.

For my money when recording bass, nothing beats a good Fender P-Bass into an ampeg B-15N miced 6" out with a U47fet. RE-20 works well too, but you'll have to get it a lot closer as there is little to no proximity effect with that mic.
