RE: [Harp-L] micing amp

Chris Mastakas asked:
What would be the better mic for micing a four speaker amp through a PA? A Shure SM 57 or a SM 58 ?
I'd try the SM58 first. Being more omni-directional, it''ll pick up all four speakers better. Having said that, though, the SM58's omni-directionality could also lead to more feedback... If you find yourself feeding, you might want to (A) experiment with the amp placement; (B) experiment with the mic placement; (C) experiment with the amp's volume. If you still feed, go to the more directional SM57. If you *still* feed, turn the amp down and the PA channel up. And if you STILL feed, order a very tall beer. :)
