What amp(s) you currently use for live setting. I use a VOX AC15 mic'ed of course but am looking to add another for stereo.

You should probably try and find out what kind of amp compliments that vox in a stereo mix. It won't be quite the same amp, but it won't be the polar opposite. The vox has a really chimey, sparkly clean to it, and it doesn't get much gain, but the gain it can get is very thick and mid heavy. Try to find an amp that works well with that vox.

Might I suggest an old Ampeg? One of the Blue Checked ones, like a Reverberocket or Gemeni? Great amp, with a bit of clean bluesy breakup, but rather than being bright and chimey, and it's full and robust. It'd give you some contrast, yet still remain in the ballpark of clean with a bit of breakup.

If you want a 2nd amp with a bit more clean headroom, I agree on the vintage Ampegs
or 20-40 watt Fender circuits.

Check out the Magic Amps Vibro Prince & 22 watt Vibro Deluxe.
Also the Gries 12 & Gries 35
Reeves Custom 30
Bad Cat Black Cat 30R

I would suggest a Princeton Reverb to use in stereo with your AC15. About the same wattage, with a different (but great) texture to the sound.

Try to different tube amps that are voiced differently. A Marshall haze would balance two sounds. A Fender Pro Junior would blend too.
I use a Twin Reverb for outside gigs. Indoors is my Deluxe Reverb.
