I read a Mingus interview in Down Beat once, and he said he never used anything attached to his bass for amplification. He always used mics detached from the instrument, and said when anything was attached he couldn't control the sound. He always used gut strings and high action. His best quote from that interview was, "Man, I'm a musician, not an electrician!"
