Default Use all the tools

Use an amp simulator with a reasonably good sound source that you can send to a small tube amp, say 20 watts. Turn the amp's clean channel volume full, or almost full. Stick an SM57 or an SM7b on the cab. Use a room mic about 3ft away if you got enough channels. Listen on headphones, set the mic position, the amp, amp simulator and mic input levels until it sounds incredible, then record each source to a separate track. When you mix this afterwards, it sounds real.

Use all the tools, enjoy!
