anyone that knows stuff about microphones, what are some good mics for recording guitar amps? im gonna try out some of the mics my school has and see what sounds i like but if anyone has any good recommendations id love to hear them

This kind of stuff might be a great thread in itself. The short answer is it depends on price range. Shure SM57 and Sennheiser E609 are both right around a hundred dollars and are standards for a reason. You get into some more varied options once you bump up a few hundred bucks, but for electric guitar you can get quality results with either of those mics relatively easily.

Yeah. The thing with the 57 is that on top of its versatility it really is great for electric guitar. Calling it a jack of all trades almost sells short how solidly it performs in that context. What kind of stuff are you recording, and what are you using for an interface?
