    I'd go as far as a wormhole of failure.

    Really, I get my primary mic right, and mostly then just get my secondary mic phase-coherent with the first, and then balance the two to taste. Just a little bit of the second mic is usually enough to go a long way fleshing the sound out.

    I have an Axe-Fx, my recorded tone is already great. I don't need your prehistoric technology anyway.

(EDIT - Rereading this, I'm not saying "Quigs sucks at recording" even though at a glance it sort of reads like that, so I'm adding this to clarify that I'm agreeing with you - unless you can get a good sound out of a single SM57, then you're wasting your time trying anything more complicated.)
    It's all good, I've posted plenty of good sounding 57/Cab examples on here in the past so I'm not terribly worried about my "recording cred".

    Maybe your sweet Boss stuff can help you obtain the foghat tone you seek.

    I'm surprised it took you this long to start being a shit-talking

    Whereas you on the other hand went from zero to ruffled panties immediately, as is tradition.
