Two quick questions: 1. I've read a lot about double mic'ing guitar cabs...specifically, I've heard a lot about close micing with a Shure 57 and micing about six feet away with another mic. My question is: do you use a Shure and another mic, and if so, what other mic do you use? Are there better alternatives to the 57? 2. I've seen about the Earthworks KickPad, and how it supposedly gets an optimal kick sound just from being in the signal chain. Have ya'll heard anything good about it? Any of you use it? If so, what are your experiences? Is it worth it? Thanks!
