Question Making YouTube Reviews - Questions!

Hi there people.

Lately I've seen a lot of reviews of several products on YouTube and it kind of made me wanna do the same thing. Also because a lot of the reviews out there doesn't really show all the features of some products.
I'm going to review guitar gear, pedals, guitars and stuff like that.

But, my question is:
How do I make a good review, sound-wise??
How do I connect my gear for such a review??
I can think of two ways:
1. Using a mic in front of my AMP and have that running into my audio-interface. (IMO that should give an excact sample of how the product sounds with an AMP.)
2. Running it all through the audio-interface, meaning - Using Cubase to record it all and then find a suitable AMP + CAB in Cubase.

Looking forward to get som info!
Thanks!

First idea's good, I'd do that if I was to review guitar gear.

Or you could record dry stuff and then re-amp it, say for comparisons of two amps or two pedals.

Yea, definitely mic up your amp. I hate when people dont mic their amp up for a review. And try to keep the talking minimal. My favorite reviews are when people have text pop up that says their settings and meanwhile the audio is playing

Exactly what's written in the first result of the search "reamping" on google.
This, if you're still feeling lazy - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Re-amp

You basically record a dry signal going from the guitar to the interface, then you send the recorded signal back from the computer to the amp and you record the result.

That way you can have two different recording of the same exact guitar part and/or you can record ideas and then focus on the recording/sound later.
