    Here is the amps we used last night at Fastback Studios: The Fastback18 was mic'ed with a late 1950's Coles 4038 Ribbon ~ The 1967 Fender Bassman with 2x15 speaker cab was mic'ed with an RE20 and SM57 and the Mid 1980's Hiwatt Half stack was mic'ed with a SM 57.

    Thanks for sharing.
    I assume the mics on the Bassman are close enough to get away w/o too many phase issues? Ever try taking the 57 and rotating it 90 degrees horizontally?
    Tracking all 3 at once?

    Yes when you line them together Phase is not an issue, but if it is out of phase I have a Radial Phase box that you can flip it to bring into phase... 9 out of 10 times if we X/Y a mic set up we will use tube mics. As for tracking 3 at once, Yes we have a splitter 3 mics / 2 amps blending the tones and panning L & R.

    Not sure how you are doing it into the mixer but, why not have a separate channel for each mic so you can later blend and eq separately. Also allows separate effects on different amps/mics. You maybe already doing it this way, as it seems like it would offer the most tonal options at mix down.
