My 4 guitar mics are 57,67,421,121. Blended together they sound great, but it’s also a lot of work micing 2-3 speakers with phase. Sometimes I take one or two out, but if I take the 57 out, things sometimes get lost in a thick rock mix.

Typically it’s 57/421 dominating with 67/121 low to texturize the mid/lows to taste. Both the 67/121 on distorted guitars by themselves can be a bit dark on capture.

421/57 fit together really nicely, but lack the depth the 121 and 67 have.
