Mostly covered above, but you could also consider some lower priced dynamics which will also give you different flavours to the SM57. Sennheiser e906 (with onboard EQ adjustment) and Beyer M201 spring to mind.

I tried a bunch of SM57-like mics on guitar cab, and also the guitar cab mics, and I really like the sound of these guys (Peavey PVM45, PVM45ir , etc.) : https://peavey.com/products/index.cfm/item/664/116542/

Its like an SM57 only better for guitar amps IMHO. And you can get them used very inexpensively. That way you can mic every speaker which gives nice depth to the sound.

Man I have 4 speakers to mic up to get it to sound really good!

Grab these mics when you can find them.

Thanks for that. I'll look at the CabGrabber. I bought a similar product, the "AmpClamp", but at the time I was trying to record with a Blue Dragonfly, and seem to remember I couldn't get the mic positioned correctly with it. Since then I've bought gear which is more for direct recording, but now I really want to experiment with mic'ing an amp/cab.
