I'm just getting into the recording world and I'm wondering what everyone else is using for guitar mics. A short description why you use them would be great but not needed.

Thank you much, all you kind heads!!

I've been using MD421 mics on cabinets a lot lately.

For live and stage I've used an e609. Slightly cheaper than the e906. I can't hear a difference for sound reinforcement. Isolated/studio I think the e906 is slightly warmer and overall a hair nicer sounding. In a stage/bar reinforcement setting I won't believe many can hear a difference that can't be overcome by placement or slight EQ.
