i have a shure sm57, connected to my Boss BR-600 for recording. I'm still not getting a very good distortion sound, but the cleans sound fine! Any suggestion?? Right now i have the mic touched the sound grate on my cube 60, and it's right at about the middle of the amp
Move it to the side man. About three quarters to the edge and get it off the grate a little. Then play with the distance. Mic placement is a touchy thing and it's why recording engineers get to charge so much.
