The Shure 57 or 58 (with cable attached) should be wrapped with a towel (or equivalent…foam for instance). With the head of the microphone facing upward gently, but securely wedge the mic/towel/cable between the tailpiece and the body of the bass. You will need to position the head of the mic up or down “to taste” and voila the old mic in the towel miking setup. (Edit)…an added benefit of the towel touching the body of the bass is that this will reduce vibrations that are associated with some feedback issues.
