#71: Dynamics on Distorted Bass

8 dynamic mics are put through the grinder to assess how they handle the not-so-subtle qualities of a distorted electric bass guitar. Chris uses the Malekko B:assmaster fuzz tone and the array of mic is set at 28” (71cm) from the speaker bottom. These mics are either engineered or renowned for their abilities in capturing bass range frequencies and the ability to handle high sound pressure levels.
