    i've got some condensers and dynamics, i'm generally a mic the cab up close kinda guy, but i want a amb sound for this session i'm workin on, and i don't want to use fake reverb.

    its for a fast punk style sound, i'll prob still close mic it though, but i want to be able to choose what i want, when i mix it.

    maybe some stereo condensers in the room? don't know, what're you guys doing.

    How does your room sound?

    I have used a U87 about 10-15 feet from the amp.

    Fake reverb doesn't sound like fake reverb when used correctly. Utilizing an extremely short decay & no pre-delay is really all that's necessary to create a nice stereo ambience. Booming bass is dependent upon the rooms resonance & reflections. So you have a huge studio to do that in ? no ? Then your ambient room mics will sound like a lousy bedroom. My favorite sound. Use the software reverb.

    In November I'm going to vote with Al Gore's rhythm

    Have you considered an ambient roomy?

    Do it Wobble style: Aim the amp at a wall (or a large baffle), mic it and the room.
