Thread: Remote mic to heat musical instrument

  1. Default Remote mic to hear musical instrument

    I play Double Bass in the symphony. My hearing is very sensitive to the background noise [the other instruments] and I can not hear my own bass sound as I play [low frequency]. I am looking for a hearing aid type product that is discrete and wireless to a small mic that I can install on my bass. I am looking for suggestions, please.

    I think this might be a toughy. I haven't looked at all hearing aids, but one I looked at only went down to 100hz, which isn't going to cut it for double bass. I think you might be better off going to a music dealer and see if you can find some wireless headphones and a high quality wireless microphone.

    I have already checked with the industry and there does not appear to be anything wireless. I am already using a pickup, through a very small amp and wired to an earpiece. I am looking for a wireless solution.

    There are definitely wireless headphones-- I believe both Bose and Sennheiser have them as well as others. The key would be finding a wireless transmitter to attach to the pickup. I know there are wireless mics for actors-- seems like there ought to be something, although I don't know if the ultra low frequencies are an issue.
