You can use it. Close, Far, doesn't matter.

It has a SPL rating of 137dB. The threshold of pain is 130dB

I think you can use nt-1 for recording an amp. Experiment with the distance and the angle. Depends on your room-acoustic and want you want the sound to be.

Take a look at the rode homepage and the link to the "rode-university".

If you do a lot of recording you want another mic sooner or later anyway.

Let us hear you´re recordings.
