The open Estring on the electric bass guitar is also 40 cycles or so, but for years we routinely half past our sound systems and 80 cycles. So it seems to me that often the most important total aspects of an instrument have nothing to do with the fundamentals. The overtones create this characteristic tone of instruments, not necessarily the fundamentals.
I can do amazing tricks with a fiddle. For starters I can balance one on my nose. Or I can do what Dick suggests and make it sound right.
Sometimes the only solution is to butter their bow...
I got some insight from him, sounds like he is a good player but doesn't know sound well. He basically said one gig the sound guy made him sound better than he has ever heard, and the last festival he sounded terrible. I inquired but not much more info was given. Lol. Sounds like it is a go with it kind of instrument, so I will do just that! Appreciate it!
Wow...now there is a whole lot of technical information on what he likes for his sound! Choose either a dynamic or condensor and put it up in the air and be done with it. A Shure 57 or Audix I5 will do the trick for you. I have used 57's or had singers flip a vox Shure 58 up and play into that. I have used the AKG CS1000 and liked that as well. I have worked with fiddle players that use a direct line/pickup and microphone at the same time. Your not splitting hairs here.
