I was lookin to get a really nice guitar cab mic. I usually record with marshalls, and peavey amp heads through a mesa rectifier cab. MOSTLY heavier bands, but also some lighter rock bands
just lookin for something to really brighten up the guitar tone and sound clear and caputre the real sound
A lot of people that use a second mic on heavy guitars absolutely RAVE about the ribbons for this purpose. Based on what Ive heard around here, I'd probably get a Fathead, or an Apex 205/210 and mod it.
I'm sure the right condenser might work well too. My Studio Projects B1 actually works pretty well for this purpose for a $100 mic. Damn, if that mic isn't one of the best value workhorse mics around, I don't know what is.
Sorry for the hijack Chris.
