    So I've recently become fascinated by combo amps and how clean and fresh they can sound in comparison to a head/cab combination. I'm not ragging on half stacks, I've owned a few but I'm just gonna try something different now.

    I currently run a Vox AC30 2x12 combo into an Orange 4x12 with vintage 30s. The sound is full and awesome, very big Queenish tone, but I've been interested in running a twin combo set up for sometime now. I'm thinking about running the Vox AC30 in stereo with a Fender Twin Reverb. I'll probably keep the twin with a deep clean tone and keep the Vox on the Top boost overdriven. I just think having the ability to blend the tone on these two amazing amps would be incredibly sexy.

    I don't really like hi-gain tones and I'm just going for a deep crunch tone that's very responsive to my picking and sounds full and warm at the same time. There's a sweet 80s Twin Reverb at a music shop near by for like 800 bucks, it sounds pretty awesome.

    So what do you guys think? Should I go for it? I'm open to any suggestions, reccomendations, flames, whatever. Maybe some of the guys running twin combo set-ups can provide some insight on the topic. :)

    Yeah the amp switcher can make it or break it. Anyone else?

    I say go for it!
    It's hard to go wrong with a Twin (unles you get a POS reissue), and the AC30/Twin combo would be awesome!
    Running a stereo chorus or delay in actual stereo gives you a huge spatial sound that won't disappoint.
