    I like to throw a few different mics up. Maybe a 421 and 57 close to grille with the capsules even. The U87 or 414 close could be nice too. I like to get a mic off the cab if I can, maybe 8" to 3 feet back in either cardiod or omni depending on what the room sounds like. Sometimes the omni mic is all you need. Another cool thing for beefy rhythm guitar tracks is to throw a mic behind the cab and flip the phase on it. Other then that, use your ears. Walk around the room and find a cool spot to throw a mic.
