Recording URBass, violin and Jazz guitar ?
These guys are some of the best musicians in DC and I want the recording to come out perfectly.

I will be using protools HD tracking at 192 khz. I was thinking about using the following mics.

Jazz guitar - Royer R121
Upright Bass - Blue Kiwi and maybe a bass drum mic b52.
Violin AKG414 TLII

They all want to be able to play together at the same time. I can separate them (not completely isolated though) or record them all in the same room.

What do you guys think? These are my best mics and the only other mics I have are an Octavia 319 and some sm57's/58's.

I can also get hold of a pair of AT4033's that I can use as a room stereo pair if I were going to record them all in the same room.

Any suggestions will be appreciated, including mic placement tips etc.

You'll probably want to make sure the players can see and hear each other easily. In acoustic instrumental performance, these factors trump sound quality always, and you'll just have to deal with it as the engineer.

When close micing, I'd consider using the ribbon mic on the violin. The 414 could be too bright; consider switching the two.
