Hey, I really wasn't sure if this would be better in the amps forum or here, so if I put it in the wrong forum, the mods have permission to beat me. In all seriousness though, which do you prefer? All of the soundmen/studios I've worked with have usually either ran me direct through the balanced output of my amp or a DI box. I did play with a band once in which we miced my cabinet. I really don't have any specific reason for this thread other than curiosity. Which do you prefer and why. Any sound guys want to put in their two cents? Do you find one approach easier to mix than another?
