For this paper it is researched about sound engineers and guitarists perception and preference of the guitar amplifier as the distance between microphone and amplifier is increased. 6 distances from 2 cm to 80 cm was compared with each other in an A/B listening test. The results from the listening test show that both groups identified similar tendencies in spectral perception as what could be predicted from previous research. The groups showed however differences in perception of other parts of the guitar timbre.
