Thanks for the kind words. It may be a problem with the lo-band, I know the level is higher on the hi band playback. But it's even better on the actual CD. Still somewhat transparent, compared to some records. There's not a lot of compression or futzing with levels etc.
As far as the recording info, it was digital multitrack (recorded to ADAT, mixed and dubbed from hard drive), the bass had two mics on it. Both some kind of Neumanns (skinny) one about 6-8 inches away from the treble side f-hole, the other about 8-12 inches away from the fingerboard (between 2nd and 3rd position)on the treble side. I was in a bass booth that gave me some nice reinforcement. A buddy of mine (who's bass I've played and it sounds good) had the opposite reaction to the booth in this studio. He felt he had a much fuller and more defined sound outside the booth. The studio was Peter Karl Sound Studios in Brooklyn. Great piano!
