    Hi there, I'm recording an album this week, I haven't done much recording before and I was wondering what your guys thoughts was on miking the back as well as the front etc. I'll be playing through a 4x10 deville.

    I really like mixing the sound of a mic in front and one in back. Here's a really helpful video on the subject:

    For mic placement on the front of the amp, a lot of times you'll get the best sound just by placing the mic dead center on one of the 10 inch speakers almost touching the grill.

    Good luck!

    Great tutorial. Thanks for posting this! It would be cool to hear a couple mic varation like a Royer ribbon, etc.
