    thats definitely a sound! ALOT of the ROOM in that sound. Its 9 inches back now and its a nice blend with the 57. I can do a ROOM version if you really want.

    There's a book called Mixing with the Mind where there is a concept described when capturing cabs. The author described the cab beaming out forward a large flame. And sounds can be very pleasing at the "tip of the flame". There is a point where the speakers converge, and you position the mic right there in that spot. Imagine a pretty big flame. Each speaker is a source, and the tip of the whole flame is a few feet in front of the cab, and right in the center of the 4 speakers (if we're talking about a 4x12). I wouldn't be able to tell you exactly what distance it is, but when I do that I put the amp on max volume to hear the hiss, and with headphones I move it around until I find the fullest sound of all 4 speakers at that approximate distance

    I don't know if @junk notes is wanting to hear that, but I am curious to hear the tip of that flame.

    Cool sounds, by the way.

    Thats some meaty tone. Sounds awesome.

    What speakers are in the cab ? Front loaded or rear ?

    Sounds killer as always man. 2020 is the year I'm finally pulling the trigger on a Wizard. I know you've had/have a few Wizards, and my playing style is pretty similar to yours. I'm leaning toward the MCII, but of the ones you've tried...what's your go-to?

    Alrighty, now look up how to remove that mini transformer. Put it back together and record the same exact way. Dial in input level. How does it sound?

    I like what you've got dialed in on this one better than the Bogner.

    Or just get an SM77, which is a transformerless SM57 in a shorter body
