    Hi all.
    I've made a new a addition to my aspiring home-studio.
    A Vox AC 30 Classic Custom 1x12 w/a Celestion NeoDog.
    I have a few mics in my bag to choose from.
    SM-57s.......of course
    Peavey-PVM 328s
    CAD E-200
    Rode NT1000
    Stereo pair Rode NT5s

    I planned to use a 57 into my Brick. Is there a ,"preferred," mic for micing cabs?
    What are some determining factors on deciding whether to use a powered mic or not?
    Last but not least, techniques...Im all ears for ideas old and new, so long as they have logical explanations
    Darn rookies,.....LOL.
    Im as giddy as a school girl pondering the new possibilities.
    But seriously, all input is appreciated.

    Sound going for...

    Nice clean crunchy distortion (non 80's)
    Think Audio Slave sounds
    The material is led by powerful female vocals with a hard rock/alternative edge.

    you can't go wrong with a 57 thru a good pre-- its pretty much standard stuff. i would recommend auditioning several if u have them available as some sound better than others (age, condition etc). there are other mic alternatives (i sometimes use an original gt tube mic-- sounds SLIGHTLY better to my ear-- but often i'll just put up the 57 b/c of convenience and wanting to get a part down while its in my head) but the 57 is hard to beat for rock gtr-- 2" from the outside rim of the speaker angled slightly toward the cone. best of luck!
