    Hey guys. I'm trying to get a AC15 soon and was wondering what you od/dist pedals you are using with it. I'll be getting most of my overdrive from the amp, but I'm wanting something for solos and big power chords. Right now I have a Tim and a CJOD clone. I've heard the Tim sounds good with the AC15. Do you guys have any suggestions. Thanks.

    Do a search (AC30), as this question has been done to death. For me, I'm entirely happy with a Barber DD and a Hotcake as well as most fuzzes. The HC just arrived last week, and it is truely an amazing pedal.

    Are you saying most pedals work equally well if I'm using them on the AC15 or the AC30? I have not tried the AC30, but I know the AC15 is pretty much just using the top boost channel of the ac30.

    The ac15cc is the top boost channel of the ac30 in a 15 watt config. I was saying to search for ac30 because the results will be more numerous and just as relevant.

    +1. Probably the best OD I've had in front of both my VOX amps. For Distortion, the Crunch Box will work fine.

    Thanks again for the suggestions guy. I can't wait to get the Ac15. I played one this weekend and it sounded great. Just gotta sell my Mo'd and then I'll have the funds.
