    I've done a short video where you can hear and see the influence of the microphone position when micing an amp.



    I used an SM57 with three different angles: on-axis, half-off-axis and off-axis. Then I moved the mic before the speaker, so that you can hear how the mic placement influences the sound. The signal chain for this video was the following:


    Regius 6 -> OD808 -> Herbert -> Diezel 412FK -> SM57


    The settings of the OD808 are: Overdrive 9:00; Tone 12:00; Balance 12:00. All knobs of the Herbert are at noon (except the volume). Note that the cabinet is front-loaded with Celestion G12K100. Hope it helps...

    Thanks a lot! Actually, I have done this video for finding the best mic position for the G12K100. IMO these speakers are easier to mic than V30 because of their wider frequency response.

    see this is why i cant believe we dont have remote controlled mic stands for finding placement from the control room.

    It's amazing how long it takes to really learn guitar mic placement. Colin's video a few years back helped me a lot. Been micing guitars for 10 years and still have much to learn!
