Instead, you need to place a mic where it can 'see' the entire body of the clarinet. Try placing the small-diaphragm condenser mic about a foot away and aiming more or less at the lower hand position.

Even more, what is the best microphone frequency response? A microphone's frequency response refers to the range of frequencies, from low to high, that a microphone will pick up. This range is referred to by its lowest and highest frequencies, measured in hertz. A microphone with a frequency response range of around 80 Hz to 15 kHz would make a good choice for a vocal mic.
So anyway, what is a good sensitivity for a microphone?
Most analog electret and MEMS microphones have sensitivity between –46 dBV and –35 dBV (5.0 mV/Pa to 17.8 mV/Pa). This level is a good compromise between the noise floor—which can be as low as 29 dB SPL for the ADMP504 and ADMP521 MEMS microphones—and the maximum acoustic input—which is typically about 120 dB SPL.
How do you mic a bass clarinet?
Position a directional microphone between half a foot to three feet away from the bass clarinet and point the mic at the keys in the centre of the instrument (not at the bell). Experiment with the distance and positioning to get the best sound. Clip-on mics are another common strategy for close-miking bass clarinet.

To use this technique figure out how wide or tall the instrument is and place a cardioid microphone that same distance away. For example, if you are recording a hammer dulcimer that is 3" wide, the mic should be placed 3" away from it. Most if the time this technique will yield a perfectly usable sound.
What is a good signal-to-noise ratio for a microphone? Ideally we want no noise in the mic signal and, therefore, a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or infinity. A low self-noise rating is essential when capturing quiet sound sources (15 dBA or less) and so a “good” SNR would be 79 dB or more.
