WATCH: Black Sabbath engineer demonstrates how to mic a guitar cabinet

Unlock The Secret To Monster Metal Tones

Production Expert has shared a video featuring Black Sabbath engineer Mike Exeter demonstrating how to record a guitar amplifier with two microphones.

Taking place at Oxford's Woodworm Studios, the video sees Exeter dive into his close mic'ing process on a 4x12 cabinet with a Shure SM57 and a Warm Audio WA-14 diaphragm condenser, achieving stellar results. 


For any hard rock or metal guitarist looking to record gnarly tones within their own studio, Exeter's technique is absolute essential knowledge for anyone keen on DIY engineering. It's definitely a bit of an eye-opener to hear how the same driver on the amp can sound so different with a little bit of tweaking from Exeter.
