RE: [Harp-L] Micing a Meteor

I've got a standard Meteor and I also always mic the upper left hand 10" speaker.  For me it was arbitrary which of the 10's to mic, but that's where I usually put the mic.  I don't mic the 12" speaker just because I don't want too boomy a sound through the PA....anyway, I'm finding that doing this works great for gigs.  I find that the amp sounds beautiful with ~2.5 on volume, with tone on maybe 5 or 6, adding some of the meat control, a little presence (I don't think this adds much....). I plug my mic--a modified JT-30 with a mag cartridge--into the meat channel.  I find that it's very easy to be too loud with this amp but, unlike lots of other amp's, it's not necessary to crank it in an overdrive sort of fashion to get warm tube break-up.  Feedback isn't a problem with volume at this level.  I bought the amp used and swapped out all the tubes with new JJ's and....its sooo nice.

> Hello List,
>  I have one of the big Meteor amps. And once and a while I run into a gig situation where it needs to be miced. I have been micing the back of the cabinet. Recently i've seen some YouTube vids of people(Hummel I think) micing the top left hand speaker. I would think that due to the unique speaker configuration of the amp ,that this method wouldn't pick up the low end of the amp very well. Can anybody give me any advice on the best method for micing this amp? Thank you in advance for the info.
