I regularly use a small 1x10" tube amp and when close micing the proximity effect makes it sound WAY bassier than you need in an actual mix. I usually cut the bass to make it more natural sounding (in ReaEQ I use a highpass filter, freq 330 Hz, bandwidth 1.74, use the wet/dry mix to adjust to your liking).

The cab DOES make a difference, in that if you used the same speaker in a larger cab it would sound different compared to using a small cab BUT bearing in mind thow shockingly different speakers can sound from each other, and how much control we have over sound with mic placement the only question worth asking is if the recorded sound is close to what is required for the mix.
