Not really

Probably.

I play one myself.  They project like crazy.  Any mic should do for the right hand.  Depending on the style of play the left hand can be more or less important.  As I usually play solo or in a small ensemble where my bassing is important I use an old Shure omni lav.....can't remember the model # as it's probably 30 years ago I bought it....it clips onto the left hand strap.  I roll up the low end and roll of the highs to get it nice and fat without too much key noise.  The key clicks in the right hand are pretty much just percussion.

What type of music, by the way?????
