Hey guys, I currently run a Hughes Kettner Duotone head into a 4x12 with greenbacks. This nails a 'refined' marshall medium to high gain tone. Also the really nice cleans is an added bonus. But what I am looking for is something to compliment my rig, something that takes pedals well (mod/od/fuzz). My search has lead me to the Vox AC30 circuit. I love the sound of these when they begin to distort and compress. That slight compressed breakup would work wonders in my rig (think Dean Deleo from Stone Temple Pilots..Vox and Demeter). Now my question lays with, WHAT AC30 do I want? I would prefer a 2x12 combo, weight is not an issue (I will always have help loading/unloading). My maximum budget is around $1500. I love what i hear about hayseeds, but I am not to keen on waiting 5 months. There is one on ebay that is close to me, but it does not appear to have a master volume. My problem with the vox ac30h2 is once again the lack of a master. I am reluctant to buy this amp without trying one (no one around me has anything! bah!) However, maybe an attenuator is a good fix. All ideas and suggestions welcome! Mike EDIT: Also to add, I am more partial to the 'top boost' sound. I also am not partial to extra features like reverb and tremelo, I have a pedalboard for that. I am also open to clones, building a kit of some sort, or anything that will give me those sort of tones!
