Are you referring to the junction between the center dust cap and the cone surround? What is the outer surround in your parlance?Originally posted by redmax61
The SM57 is THE microphone for recording guitar.
If you don't like the way it sounds, experiment with position and angle in relation to the speaker cone. One of my favorite is with the mic perpindicular to and almost touching the grille cloth and centered on the junction between the cone and the outer surround on a V-30. I spent about two days setting up and recording 30 second snippets then changing nothing but mic location. The results were quite surprising.
+1 on that, thank goodness. I just started recording with mine for the first time today. I plunked the E609 on the grill about 4" off center on a Red Fang, and it picked up exactly what I was hearing in the room. Absolutely no fooling around with it, no experimentation, got it right on the first try entirely by accident. Just gotta love that. Imagine how good it could be for someone who knew what he was doing?Originally posted by Greggy
Whereas the Sennheiser e609 silver is much easier to position IMO.
