    If i use a SM57 on my amp, will the Focusrite be able to handle the signal without getting overwhelmed and clipping?

    I want to get a little more serious about recording, and since I do some acoustic and vocals these Focusrite bundle packs seem like a great solution. However, I just can't seem to find a good answer on wether or not it will be able to handle a mic'ed amp.

    Playing a BF Deluxe Reverb at 5-6 with Strat's and Les Pauls paired with overdrives etc.

    Thanks everyone! Feel free to suggest things.

    Yeah it'll be fine - adjust the preamp volume accordingly - strong signal with no clipping.

    I'm using the exact setup and it's working fine.
