  1. I recently tried an experiment with an older version of the c 414 but not sure wich one it was as I was in a student studio here in london and was pleased with the results ,it was all black ?! not like the new one's but how do they compare when micing high gain guitar amps compared to say a SM57? What im trying to achieve is a good all round dynamic sound with good saturation (over drive) presence.

    Night and difference between any version of the C414 and a SM57. In most cases for distorted guitar tone, I'd expect the SM57 to be the better choice. But not always. In genaral for rock guitar tone, I prefer either a dynamic or ribbon mic over a consensor mic.
