Earthworks SR30 on Acoustic Bass

When miking acoustic bass, it is difficult to pick up both the fat sound of the low frequencies and still have the definition of plucking the strings in the higher frequency spectrum. This often becomes a real challenge for even the best of engineers. Let’s now hear how the selection of microphones can assist in this challenge.
1st – Royer R-121 ribbon microphone
2nd – Neumann U-87 condenser microphone
3rd – Earthworks SR30 (30kHz) condenser microphone
(there is a short blank space between each recorded segment)
