The Bartlett Bass Mic is a  mini condenser mic for amplifying the acoustic bass with a warm, natural sound. Includes a rugged 8-ft cable, foam mount, and XLR connector. You'll be free to move around, and you'll get consistent sound from gig to gig.

It blends well with a pickup. The pickup adds definition, while the Bass Mic adds fullness.

For maximum gain-before-feedback and isolation, place the Bass Mic in an f-hole. For better sound when recording, stuff the mic's foam mount between two strings under the bridge.

The mic is sensitive or "hot". If you hear distortion when using an amp, insert a mic attenuator between the mic and amp. Example: Pearstone IMA-1030.

If you have an acoustic bass guitar, email me to get a custom mic for that instrument.   info@bartlettaudio.com.

Bass Mic customer review

"Hey Bruce, I played a gig last night and used your Bass Mic. It was fabulous. Two bass players there had come to see my Gviolone bass and loved the mic, as well" -- Bill Fowty

"I LOVE my bass mic!  My bass has never sounded better.  My brother [also a musician] was at my gig at Biltmore last night, and sitting across the room he had a hard time believing I was amplified."  -- Andy Preston
