As an upright bass player of long standing (insert tired musician joke here), my default rig was a 58 wrapped in a towel and wedged beneath the tailpiece, ball end toward the bridge. Nice warm, fat sound and ZERO reflections. And it’s impossible to get “off mic”. Especially good for when the player has to lean in and sing backing harmonies on a shared vox mic.
