Over xmas I went and saw an old friend, and did some gear trading, and came home with an iso cab he'd built. Basically a hell of a lot like the Randall iso cab, except no mics, no speaker and it's roadcased, and made with proper birch ply inside.
It's also alread got one swan neck mic holder, and I have a spare fixed mic holder I haven't mounted yet, but thinking of getting a second movable (and still mounting the fixed one, which I think lines up with the edge of the cone when attached)
Been after an iso cab for ages, but they were always too expensive, and didn't expect to get this, so haven't done much (read: any) research into any of this. So:
I've never mic'd up a speaker before (shame on me), so I've got a few questions:
1) What speaker would you put in it?
2) Is it worth using two mics?
3) What mics would you use?
4) Where would you position them in relation the the cone?
5) How far away?
As far as mics go, SM57 is the obvious choice. Speaker to go in it and the position? Relative tastes. Whatever you think sounds best. Why not use what you have in your Mesa cab?
