I'm thinking about doing some recording at my band's home studio this summer, though not for my rock band. In the studio, we have a Marshall DSL100 head and a 1960A cabinet. My step brother, who would play guitar on most of it, uses a Sovtek MiG-100 head (great, great head) and a Carvin 2x12 cabinet that may get replaced. I have a Bassman 100 that is my bass amp, though I can imagine it being used for some tracks. Is there a small, inexpensive "studio" amp that could be used to stick out? I'm thinking an ultra-simple combo of less than 20 watts, so you could crank it and get nice power tube distortion. Also, as far as micing the cabinets - in my band, we've always put two SM57s on the 1960 - one near the middle of a speaker, and one near the edge (usually the same speaker). Is there a better way? Or a different way? Our resources are pretty limited, but any help would be welcome.
