Hello folks,

So, the time has come. I am interested in recording solo material. I have an M-Audio Fast Track interface, KRK KNS-8400 headphones, and have Pro Tools SE (came with my interface). Eventually, I will upgrade to Pro Tools M-Powered. I am interested in recording guitar tracks w/ vocals, using a microphone.

I am prob. going to get a mic within the next few days, but am unsure of what to look for. My rig usually consists of Strat -> Wah -> OD -> Tube Combo Amp. I am looking to mic my amp/ voice/ acoustic guitar. Good tone is a MUST.

1) What is a good mic choice? No more than $300.

2) Is this everything I need to get the job done?

Get a Shure SM57 for the electric and a used Audio Technica AT4040 for vocals/acoustic. Someone's inevitably going to come in here and tell you to get an AT2020 or something similar, the AT4040 is only a bit more on the used market and absolutely destroys it in every way possible.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Ive def. heard of that Shure mic before. Thanks matrix, I'm scoping it out on GC's site atm.
