This is the first recording with my new toy, the famous battery operated 5w Pignose amp. I used two microphones, one at the front and one at the open rear. The amp volume was fairly low so the tone stayed clean, the Strat was on the neck pickup with the volume almost full up. As the guitar was plugged straight in the amp without any effects I added all sorts of stuff in the DAW, so this is not the ...

TeeGee Yes I saw that :) but I got the idea from Frank Zappa, ever since I read about him using it. He actually recorded with it. See here he plays it live on a TV show :O [youtube]_q0nImsfMvE[/youtube] +0

TeeGee Yes I suppose I could have added a little bit of gate, but I tend to not use it. It's blues, it can be a bit dirty... ;) +0

kimbo Find where the hum's from. Is it at the amp, or elswhere in the system? I think i notice one of your mic leada is a 1/4" unbalanced jack instead of a balanced xlr...
If you dont make the mic input so hot..ie gain stage the inputs, it should sort out lots of these problems.
Maybe an earth lift on the onterface might sort out the mains (50Hz) hum...or even a hi pass filter set to cut all below say 90Hz.
