Here's the problem (and I hope this is the proper forum so please move if not!!) I love the sound of my rig and have spent alot of time (and some fair $$) developing it. My band loves the sound. Even my wife loves the sound! The problem is that the audience never gets to share the love. Almost without fail the sound comming out of the P.A. is nowhere near as good as my sound on stage, and due to the circumstances under which I play I have not been able to participate with the sound guy as to my tone settings. To get to the question, do y'all think that micing my amp would be a quick way to have a better chance at capturing my tone FOH. I rarely get to use my rig without P.A. support. but when I do I get lots of compliments on the sound ( and never do when all that is heard is the P.A.). I am sure there are problems associated with mics as opposed to DI but I want to sound good out to the audience not just the band. Also what mics are recommended??
