I'm trying to to a bit of tracking in my apartment. For those of you who are familiar with the living environment, you know that cranking an amp is out of the question. I've been using a SM57 on my Peavey Classic 50 212 with adequate results. The problem is that I have to have the input level on my Tascam US-122 really high. Would it be beneficial to use my Studio Projects B1 at this point, or should I continue to use the SM57? I haven't tried the B1 yet, and I know that I'm going to get a bunch of "try it and see if you like it" responses. I'm just trying to figure out if a condenser will record all of the qualities of an amp at low volumes. Thanks a bunch.
