: When I was in Jr.high school(Brooklyn,NY) in the 1960's,I got to hear a lot of what were called "society bands"-small groups that played at weddings,bar mitzvahs,etc. I recall that a lot of the older bass players would take a cheap vocal mike,wrap it in foam rubber and tape it onto the tailpieces of their double basses. The mike was then plugged into either an Ampeg B-15 or a Sano(accordion amp;this seemed to work Ok. Has anyone out there ever tried this?
: Also,where can I get a pick-up for my junior-size bass that won't cost too much. My playing is mostly jamming with other amateurs at low volume(Jazz standards,C&W,Folk);I use a 50W Peavey amp for electric bass,but I want to play my upright at jams as well.
For all of you who relied to my "primative amplification" with offers of your unwanted pick-ups for sale,please contact me by E-mail(firstname.lastname@example.org),and tell me what your asking price is.
Thanks,Francis X.(The Bear)Urso
