I'm thinking about adding that biting vox sound in stereo with my "warmer, bouncier" sounding Z-28. I get the feeling they could complement each other nicely. The Z-28 is very thick sounding and I'm hoping for a more scooped sound to go along with it for a nice blend. I'm looking into a Vox AC-15 for its portability, controllable volume (i may have it cranked up) and overall VALUE. I've seen them go for like the 400 or so range if I recall. So you think it's a good amp to get a nice dynamic, not shrill vox top boost kinda sound? I do a lot of cleanish twangy stuff, some really spanky country at times, and then a bunch of straight rock/ blues with smoother OD and light distortion tones. I'm a big fan of riding my guitar's volume knob throughout a song, but I also have gain-stages in my pedal board for boosts and such. I play all p90's. I've been really partial to boutique stuff lately (my top 2 amps are the Z-28 and Alessandro Doberman). But I'm thinking a stock Vox might get me what I want for a good price. Portability is essential and reliability is a major plus. So, is the Vox AC-15 with that "wharfedale" speaker a good representation? Or does a tophat, matchless, hayseed blow it out of the water? Thanks guys/gals.
