If I were to do a mic, I'd rather go e906 anyway. It's out of the way, and sounds much better than a SM57.
    I've never worked with a 906, but while they're super position sensitive, I have yet to try anything that I like more on a guitar than a SM57. Yeah, I like it more with something to support it (the SM57/MD421 pairing rules), but once you get it dialed in it just rules.

    And if you're playing live and you're standing right on top of your amp then you've got bigger problems, I'd say. I'm not overly worried about a mic getting knocked, and honestly at this point I can mic my cab by eye and get it 95%+ right anyway so if it were to get knocked over it's an easy fix.

    This. I'll be the first person to say I vastly prefer mics to other solutions. But these boxes realistically do quite a good job of emulating a cheap dynamic microphone. My cab clone is far from the best product on the market for this but it's certainly not hard to get a good tone out of. The extra 15% I can get out of a mic just isn't worth the hassles involved in some situations.

    Price is fair for what it is if it sounds good. Honestly way more reasonably in pricing than I would have thought. Most people have spent more on pedals they never use.

    The 609/906 both have awesome side address designs and don't require stands. Fucking awesome mics, highly recommend trying one if you haven't already. Big fan. Best product Sennheiser makes in any of its divisions.

    You don't have to be standing right on top of your amp to have someone knock over your mic stand in passing. And yeah, I definitely like the e609/906 better than the SM57 any day, so there's that. Sounds better, easier to place, no stand needed. I'm glad I got the 609, and glad I listened to Greg and got the 906 too.
    I bleed BOSS blue. Yoshi Ikegami is my spirit animal.

    You clearly haven't tried recording with a toddler running around in the background

    That's something I'm quite proud of, actually.

    And being able to record totally silently with no cab volume at all is just too good to pass up.

    You do need to make sure you have a load though, FYI. This is just a DI. If you need the whole deal, the Captor is the nuts.
