Just finished my Elmwood profiles.
I own a nice sounding Elmwood Modena M60 with the Elmwood 4x12" cabinet.
This cab sounds very good - very different from other 4x12" IMHO.
The sound was not this easy to be captured - close miking did not work at all - it sounded not even close to the great sound of the 4x12 "in the room".
So I experimented and found that a distance of about 1meter works fine.
But then was the level of my microphone this low that I had to boost it with the KPA 'Return Level' - which leads to the well known 'loud / distorted' profiles (bug). So I used a mic-preamp and now all is fine.
I don't now if all here are doing close miking or far field / medium field as well.
