Re: [Harp-L] micing amp

I'd prefer the 57 and you can only mic one speaker. Aim the mic about half-way from the center of the speaker to the outer edge of the cone. If you want to get really picky, place the mic as far away from the OT as possible to minimize inductive reactance. For example, on a tweed Bassman looking at the amp from the audience, lower right speaker toward the lower right corner. OT is on the chassis (of course) a bit to the left.

What would be the better mic for micing a four speaker amp through a PA?
A Shure SM 57 or a SM 58 ?
