Hey my name is Marcos and Ive done some recordings my self I am a piano Player and I also do engineering. My theory is to always keep your options open so I always mic the Bass Cab and I also use Direct Injection into the 2 seperate tracks on the Board. If later in the mix I don't like one or the other I can Always delete it or Combine both tracks to get one good sound. Another trick is Compression; I always use light compression while recording. You never want to over compress the signal and then you are screwed with a small sound if later on you want to compress some more you can. And final thing is the Bass pre-amp I had pass experiences with bass players that use a crapy bass and pre-amp belive it makes a diffrence. To me the best pre-amp out there is the EDEN Navigator. It's a little costy but it sounds great, also if you can afford the 4x10 cab buy it it sounds great. That's all I can give you I hope it works out for you...
