Type: condenser microphone
Mode: active

The microphone is attached at the bridge from the bottom side with a peg. The Preamp delivered with the microphone allows to go directly into a bass amp. With an additional available blender the microphone signal can be mixed with the signal of the SD piezo pickup.

Similar to the Fishman BP100 pickup.The four piezo elements are attached to the bridge, one element underneath each string, with double sided adhesive tape.

    I tried both the microphone and the piezos from SD. The piezos sounded awful. The microphone was better, but I missed to low end. I didn’t liked to mount the mike to the bridge at all, either. So I sold it.

    My experiences: the mike sounds very natural, the application onto the bass bridge is easy. I like to use the mike on live gigs to have it run directly to the house/monitors. Also for recordings – in a studio/recording situation it gives a clear sound, though not as much low end “round” sound as larger mics, so I usually have it in addition to some Neumann U-87 or so. That works greatly.
