I want something more natural than an SM57 to mic up my guitar amp. In the past I’ve used 57’s miced with an LDC set back a few meters to add some space, which has sounded quite good. Trouble is I only have 1 channel in an upcoming live session and want something different to the boxy 57 sound. It cuts well but imparts far too much of its sound and sometimes all I can hear is SM57.
So what’s good for close micing a combo, perhaps something a little more full range, but can handle guitars well?
