#73: Dynamics on Picked Bass Guitar

Eight dynamic mics are put to the test to hear how they reproduce the sharp attack of an electric bass guitar played with a pick. The array of mics 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.
