I did a bit of searching and didn't find a relevant thread. If there's already one out there, then please point me to it =D. I have been miking my Orange AD-30r with my little SM57 for a while now. I am going through an Apogee interface into Logic Pro. I was wondering if there is a better mike out there to capture my amp a little more clearly. The 57 always sounds like it's a little muddy and doesn't pick up the highs of the amp very well. Of course, I could just be positioning the mike incorrectly. I have it centered up on the cone of the speaker, about 1 inch from the tweed of the amp face. I have also tried miking it at the outer circumference of the speaker cone, which sounds a little different but no better than miking it dead center. Any suggestions on a high quality mike amp? Also, do you have any techniques to get a better sound out of what I have?
