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.

Best,

I have about a 15 dollar mic, and that's a good description of how my recordings usually sound. How goods your mic.
