Hot Rod Deluxe vs. Hot Rod DeVille for recording (1x12” vs 2x12”)

Hi all

I’ve been playing this morning with a Hot Rod Deluxe (1x12”) and a Hot Rod DeVille (2x12”) side by side. The sounds were similar but with the DeVille giving a bigger sound with more bass (listening 2 or 3 feet away)

And the question is: In a recording scenario where we use just one mic in just one cone in exactly the same way with both amps, would we obtain that same difference in sound or it would be reduced or cancelled because the mic is “hearing the same”, a single 12”?


Thanks

I own every fender Hot Rod out and everyone one them give a different sound, close and far miced. The best thing to do is try out each one and find the right sound for the song.

I just got my Deville 2x12 and this thing is LOUD and just what the Dr. ordered for me to record. I can't wait to take it through the paces. I will post mp3's when I test it.
