Qn: anyone tried a 77dx about 3 feet away with volume on amp slightly under 3, near breaking point? Then maybe a 57 by the grill?

yes with a 77d, but it had to be further out than 3 ft. ended up using it in non directional with the v1 roll off. sounded awesome. raoyer was the spot mic, though

The usual suspects will always work. I find a Bassman to sound super clear/huge and larger then life almost if you're going for that I have very surprisingly good luck with a Lawson L47 on mine 6+ inches away. I usually haaaaate condensers on guitar.. but clean guitar they usually seem to be the ticket. also th 57+royer combo is good. m160 is good.. might need something else in there too.

Hi Clarence,

Seeing all of the recommendations for ribbons brings to mind... I have not forgotten about the Coles. As soon as I get em back from Wes I will drop em off.

Also, I have a pair of Royers. The Royer might be the perfect mic for that amp.

Perhaps the Church Cine-mic may beat out the ribbons on occasion.

A 57 will sound good as usual.

Try running some of your keys thru it too.

For bass keep the amp low volume, and throw the mic back a few feet further than the usual close mic for guitar. For bass the Church mic or the 47fet might be the ticket... maybe the Coles too?

Dipole mics never worked great for me, it's always the rear lobe pickup that gives me issues. Close up they capture the reverse phase signal and mix that in with proximity effect = mush. Further back they pick up my less than Carnegy Hall room. I'd rather use a great omni mic than a dipole.

Thanks Jeff. Yes when ready is cool. I'm experimenting on mics and the song and part are also playing a roll in what is probably going to be used.
I'll definitely try the 47fet and also keys for sure!
Thanks again bro and chat soon!

BTW,

The Royers are great if the amp is turned up.

If the amp is not that loud the Coles will excel! Actually, many feel that the Coles often sound better than the Royers. It is that the Royers hold up to SPL better than most other ribbons.

An SM7 and a condenser or a ribbon depending if you're wanting it to sit more in the midrange or low end.
