A cheap one may out ok but as always, the moe you spend on audio gear, the better sound you can get.

As I said, try some different positions on the cab with the mic and look up some micing videos on youtube.

There a loads of different methods to micing up a guitar amp. Just moving the mic a few inches can result in a radically different sound. You should do as moody suggests, and try out a load of different positions. Record the same riff each time, and compare them till you can find the sound you like.

You could post sound clips onto your profile for advice too.

Check this one out, it's pretty long, but it's worth watching if you're really wanting to nail it.

I have two cheap condenser mics into my computer. I put one just off from touching the amp. And another about 2-3 foot away for atmosphere. Works ok for me once I get the amp mic to a distance without serious distortion.

Doesnt the Cube have a direct out? You can bypass Gearbox...

Indie stands for Industrial I think, like Marilyn Manson.

it doesn't sound organic and it just doesn't sound very good.
