Default mic\'ing a banjo?

Sounds easier than it is as I am discovering. Maybe its that the banjo is not a true quality instrument, or the player (me [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] ) is not the best in the world.
I don't have an array of expensive mics. I tried my octava, and settled on the good old 58 pointing directly at where my picks meet the strings. The room is carpeted and dead. The sound is acceptable, but I feel like it can/should be better.
Any advise?
