What size guitar amp should you use to record professional rock songs?

What size amp do all the pro bands use when recording records? I have a Marshall JVM41 stack, just wondering if that is too big to record with? Anyone know any examples etc cheers :]

Some of the biggest guitar sounds have been recorded with very small amps. Jimmy Page is a fan of low wattage amps in the studio. So is Joe Walsh (I just mention them because they are two of my favorites, and I’m familiar with their preferred recording techniques).

My favorite recording amp is a little Fender Vibro Champ that’s a whopping 4 Watts! But, I can turn everything on it all the way up. Stick a good large diaphragm condenser mic in front of it and stand back.

You can record with larger amps (and a lot of guitarists do). It’s just really not necessary. In fact, if you’re trying to use a large amp in a small room, you can get some weird boundary compression effects if you’re using any room mics.
