ric, let me know how it works for you. depending on where we are playing I may swing the arm out a little and angle the mic toward the bass. Setting the mic at the f-hole seemed to give me a lot of the woof woof sound and I don't know enough about a sound system to ever get that adjusted out.

When I had an AT Pro35, I'd mic near the ff hole. When I switched to the ATM350, the ff position sounded too muddy, too boomy. After a bit of trial and error, I ended up between the bridge feet. It was interesting since these are mics from the same company, with a very similar response, on the same bass.

The mics are really quite different in their response. The Pro ATM 35 frequency response is limited to 50-15,000Hz whereas the ATM 350 is much wider at 40-20,000Hz.

There are a few other differences too if you peruse the specifications page.
