just curious, which one do you actually use?
i have a k&k bass max
my live performance set is a k&k through a wah and delay then i run a split 1 goes to my galen kruger micro bass amp and the other goes into a fishman D.i. to the board. i get great results with this set up.. i can hear myself great and i dont need to be in the monitors and the sound engineer (sometimes thats me too lol) can dial in my bass really good for the audience.
i've tried alot of things for recording and the only thing that i've found exceptable was using a condenser but that wont work for stage.
i'm planning on getting a new pick up cause i dont realy like the k&k. it sounds good and even. but it moves around and falls out when i get to rockin.
the David Gage Realist Pickup has my eye.
all the bassists and cellists i know around town seem to use them.
i just don't know how well they are going to translate for live looping.
i've also read about the Beyerdynamic M88TG some guys over at gearslutz said they used that mic to record upright bass in a live room setting. they said it has good of axis rejection and picks up the bass tones good.
i'm going to rent some gear for a show i'm doing sound for and performing in so i plan to see if they have they m88tg for me to rent out.
i'm not ready to do any looping yet .. i need to get some foot switches and practice first. i'm really just triing to plan my next 6 months of gear purchasing budget.
