I am recording a live jazz quartet on Friday consisting of drums, acoustic piano, upright bass and either electric guitar or a sax (this will be confirmed tomorrow and I have no problem with these). As I have never recorded upright bass, I am lacking on miking techniques.
I have been researching into the subject but most places seem to be talking about when the instrument is isolated, and as I will be recording it completely live, some of the placements may not be ideal. I have heard of suspending an sm57 in the bridge with rubber bands but I'm not sure of the best way to achieve this. I am mainly looking to get a good sound out of the upright bass while minimizing the bleed from the other instruments.
Also, it will be plucked, not bowed.
