Ear Trumpet Labs Nadine Upright Bass Microphone

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Nadine is a medium-large diaphragm condenser mic specifically designed for use on upright basses. The low end is tuned to give a flat response at the mounting distance, and the cardioid pickup pattern provides very natural sound by picking up as much of the surface of the bass as possible, within the constraints of the close placement. There's great rejection off the back of the mic, allowing use with stage monitors.

Physically, the mic is separated into the body, which securely straps to the tailpiece with velcro elastic, and the head, which mounts easily between the strings above the tailpiece using a rubber grommet. The 14-inch Mogami cable that connects the two parts makes it easy to place the mic ideally on any bass. This mounting system makes Nadine both easy to move from instrument to instrument and secure enough to leave on one bass permanently. After years of being asked for a mic specifically designed to meet the needs of the acoustic upright player, we think we've found the best design yet for this demanding application.

    Nadine Double Bass Mic

    What a gorgeous bit of kit - and it sounds as good as it looks. Ryan was awesome to deal with. Communication was great. Item was shipped straight away and arrived quickly. Definitely would recommend purchasing from the Acoustic Center in the future,
