Hi all, My new band is a 4-piece (guitar, bass, drums, vocals) and our guitarist is looking to employ a live stereo arrangement once he takes delivery of his Fractal Audio AxeFx and Marshall 9100 power amp in the next week or so. The initial idea is to mic his stereo 4x12 cab (custom made, with 2xV30s and 2xCL80s) with two identical mics (prob SM57s or E906s, panned left and right) and keep the stage volume moderate to help get the widest stereo image out front. Of course, we're aware of the many millions of variables such as poor PA systems, bad rooms (too small/big/muddy/bright etc), lazy or incompetent sound engineers ("Don't be a tosser I'm not putting two mics on your cab"), small gigs without PA support, etc etc. So my question - what have some of your experiences been with stereo 'amping'? Is it more hassle than it's worth?
