: Mingus always played with really loud bands and he always cut through and had a powerful, full, and rich sound. Anybody out there know how he did it? I'm guessing no, but who knows. Thanks, Michael
When I saw him dozens of times in the late 50's, early 60's, amps were very rare. The standard method was to play into a house microphone next to the bass; some players wrapped a mic in a cloth and laid it between the tailpiece and the top.
