Anyone having good success using isolation cabs for recording electric guitar.

I'm a home recordist with a DAW
Nuendo 1.6
pc
96k 8 i/o steinberg converters
Tube tracker M3 mixer

I had a pod pro and bass pod pro but Im trying to explore the idea of getting better tone recorded and wondered how to best do that given the poor room acoustics.

WOndering if a "whisper' room is the answer instead of the cab.?

I've known cats that have made or used various contraptions to record big electric gtrs in thier house, ect. One was as simple as a big roadcase with a 12" cab. inside and a sm57. I'd try that. Maybe if you have a spare closet....you could turn it into a little ISO booth for gtr. In that case, I'd just lay the cab on it's back to use the hieght (being the longest demension of a close t- for the sound to project into) and hang a mic over it. :w:
