Hey Ken,

Great to have you here!

I was wondering if you can tell us anything about how you captured the double bass on this track?

In fact any info on the recording of Transformer would be superb.

Thanks again.

Hi, I wish i could tell you exactly how I recorded it but alas I can't. I had a discussion with Herbie Flowers, the guy that played both basses, about it and he didn't remember either.

But, if I were to guess I would say it was either a U67, placed where I couldn't say, or a KM54 wrapped in sponge and placed, carefully, in the bridge. That's about as close as I can get for you.
