im new to home recording so sorry if this is a stupid question.
i want to record guitar from an amp, i have just been recording useing my condenser mic near the amp but this gets so much fuzz and background noise.
also i find when the amp is distorted and loud my recording is terrible, im sure im doing this the wrong way, what tools or gear do i need to record properly
any help would be great thanks
You do need to experiment with the position of the mic, and a noise gate would also help if you're suffering string noise.

A dynamic mic and offset the mic on the speaker.
Are you using a mixer :?:
I have about a 15 dollar mic, and that's a good description of how my recordings usually sound. How goods your mic.
