: Today i,ve probed a shure prologue 10 with my double bass. Itīs a very cheap mic and it works with to many instruments. I think it may be there a drum mic that works perfectly with the double bass. Anybody have probed a bass drumīs mic.thanks.
I've been using an Audio-Technica ATM-25 with very good results on my Washtub Bass. It's supposed to be used for Kick Drums.
However, if I had a good way to mount it I'd seriously consider the Golden Trinity mic that's found on Bob Gollihur's website. It's specifically FOR an acoustic bass, small enough to mount ON the bass itself, it's a condenser, and has somewhat better low-end characteristics than you'll find on the ATM-25, and probably any other kick-drum mic.
