Q: I’ve read many articles about which mics to use on a guitar amplifier, and many indicate that all you need is a Shure SM57 or maybe a step up with the Sennheiser 421.

I’ve also read that a better mic placed out in the room adds depth.

However, here’s my question. I’m recording a Fender Bassman Reissue which has four speakers.

Which one do I put the close mic on, and where exactly do I point it? [read ProSound Web]
