And here is what it sounds like... Not too ****in' bad if I do say so myself. Good $2 CAD spent.

http://media.putfile.com/Dollar-Store-Mic


At first it completely overloaded the signal, but after lowering the mic volume to 10%, I got it at a good level, and after some multi tracking, I think the results are good!

I had 2 tracks panned 100% left and 100% right respectively, mic was on axis, pointing right at the speaker cone, and another track unpanned pointing at the port of my cab.

Give me a break, this 2 dollar mic sounds a lot better than your 90 dollar cam!

And it sounds plenty mean. Especially in person.

Besides, the volume was at 0.6. Not exactly what I'd call a mean volume level.

Wow, not too shabby! I love the Dollar Store, I got one of those adapters that converts a regular like headphone cord so that it would fit into an amp with all these other adapters for a buck whereas Best Buy wanted like five dollars

what do you mean axis right

I should have put a comma. Edited. But on axis means that the mic was pointing diagonally towards the speaker cone.

not bad at all man, especially considering the dollar store mic! You can tell it's a beast.

did you record the tracks at the same time, or did you double track it?

For the two that are panned left and right, at the same time. For the middle one it was seperate, since I had to move the mic.
