Miking Guitars by Noel Golden

“When looking at the cone of a speaker cabinet (guitar amps) I place the microphone facing the outer edge of the inner cone about 1/2″ from the cabinet grill. If you’re using two mics on the same cabinet, place the second mic in the exact position on the adjacent cone. My present choice for a guitar mic is the Shure SM57. I find this technique gives me the closest reproduction of what I hear directly from the cabinet.”
