The first 3 recordings are the Barbera Upright Bass pickup. They were recorded in 2 track stereo so that the direct out from the pickup system can heard along side a simultaneously recorded track with a microphone. The right channel is just the acoustic instrument sound. A Neumann mic was placed apx 2 feet in front of the bass at bridge height. The left channel is direct to the board from the Barbera Bridge. A basic pre-amp was used for impedance matching purposes. (a Fishman model B) Left and right channels were recorded simultaneously with all EQ controls set flat with 100% isolation between channels. No post processing was done on this recording other than the conversion from the original .wav format to a compressed MP3 format.
