this thing kicks ass!!! It doesnt modify my amp's tone AT ALL and keeps the tube dynamics I love. It sounds great!!! Discuss....

it's a 57... What's there to discuss?
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

this thread could be useful if we could discuss some mics that everyone hasn't already used... I heard a Shure KSM44 on a guitar cab yesterday, it was paired with an MD421 and the pair sounded really cool
Edit: but it didn't hurt that they were in front of a Soldano SL100 through a Mesa 412

Or different combos.
My frien used a 57 and some MXL condenser (one of the higher end ones) for a 1x12 cab and it sounded very nice, almost vocal sounding.

Any thoughts on the Seinnheiser e609? I'm getting a mic soon and I'm stuck between the e609 and the SM57.

I dont know about the Seinheiser, but the SM57 kicks ass.

The sennheiser is awesome as well. Erock503 uses them as far as i understand. Actually... I think he uses them both ..... his speakers are setup in an x-pattern....

Well when I recorded my band we used three mics for the guitars: 2 SM57s (both about half a feet away and one being on- axis and the othe rbeing off- axis) and then an ADK A-51e about three meters away.

Yes. It wont sound AMAZING but it won't be terrible.

You have one, try it!

Back in the day I got some usable results for a demo with a 58 on its own...

They are very omni-directional though, so bear that in mind.

What you point it at will be LOUD in the mix, the rest will be quieter.

Try to get a nice big church or something and give the kit a bit of room to breath.

I will, once my drummer gets his new set. Thanks!!!

Could I use an SM57 as a drum overhead mic, with no other mics???


Overhead? Nah, not a good idea. For overhead, you'd want a condeser of some sort.

However they are great for snares and toms!
