Obtain an SM57 and a good mic preamp.

Mic the amp, but spend a lot of time playing around with mic placement. It's going to take some time to find the sweet spot. Using the Line Out is only going to give you sound directly from the preamp, you'd need a cab simulator for it to be worthwhile.

mic it and spend time to find the sweet spot i recomend somewhere between the edge of the speaker cone and about halfway out from the centre but play about and try different angles. and a good tip is to throw your covers over the whole mic and amp set up to absorb the sound so you get less room ambience and go as loud as you can!!!

^Are mic preamps necessary?


They aren't necessary, but they generally warm things up.
