I am trying to decide if adding a microphone to my pickup will enhance my sound. I play mostly small to medium sized venues and use an amplifier. I am thinking about a blended system using a mic+pickup. I have never used a blender before but I have experience with both pickups and mics used separately. In my experience I have never been able to coax much volume from a microphone through a bass amp without getting feedback. In quieter situations the difference in sound between a mic and a pickup to my ears is not great enough to warrent the use of a mic. In higher volume settings the sound from the pickup (realist) can get "twangy". What I am looking for is something that will give a more acoustic sound at higher volumes. Is this possible? I dont think I really need it for low volume settings but I am wondering if I will be able to get enough volume from a mic to make a difference at higher volumes. Anyone know 'bout dis?
