Kontrabass (Double Bass) Close Micing
The position of the mics are directly under the bridge of the instrument - held in place by sponges and rubber bands. the capsules of the two microphones are approx. 1-2 cm apart and on the same height. The files are normalized to -24 dB LUFS.
This test is intended to hear the different proximity effects caused by different polar patterns. The Schoeps mic is used as a control since it is a true omni mic and the Sennheiser MKH-800 Twin consists of 2 cardiod capsules.
