In Reply to: Pick up for bowed acoustic bass guitar. posted by TobyChen on November 12, 2001 at 08:30:05:
: Can anyone suggest what sort of pick up might be good for a short scale double bass/acoustic bass guitar hybrid (for bowing and plucking)? Since posting my message about my bass back in August I've had a few enquiries regarding the subject. Is there a pick up available that would suit and fix on to the end of the fingerboard like an archtop guitar. Or would I have to do it via the bridge? And what sort of price would I be looking at?
: My knowledge about pick-ups is very limited so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.\
It's not cheap, but I would recommend the Schertler Dyn-ABG, which is basically an electrodynamic contact mic. Follow the link for more details. I have the version of this for doublebass, and it is as easy to use as any pickup, put with the sound you get from a good mic.
