I'm pretty new to all this recording business and I'm having problems recording a decent electric guitar sound. I'm running a cheapish (£90) Stagg MCO 5BK through a Tascam USB 122 into my Laptop but the recordings sound very distant and flat and lack any real punch. It's especially bad if I'm using distortion. Single clean notes aren't too bad but anything else is nasty. Would a better mic ease my problem? I've been looking at the Sontronics Orpheus or the Rode NTK/NT2000. Are these decent mics to use with amps, or could it be my Preamp that's unable to deal with busy guitar sounds? If anyone has any suggestions of a good mic to use with a guitar amp that would be great. Cheers for any help anyone can offer!
