I've spend plenty of time reading here, but this is my first actual post so please go easy! I have learned a ton from reading what everyone posts on here, so I figured I could get a little help. So some background... I've been playing for about 5 years. Not great, but continually getting better. I started learning on a terrible electric with no amp, then moved to acoustic, which is where I spent most of my time playing. So I'm finally really getting to electric playing and attempting to form a little band with a friend of mine. He is a drummer, and my girlfriend is a pretty skilled vocalist, so that gives us 3. The idea is to just get together and play some songs and see how we do before we attempt to add anyone else into the mix. The general concept is to cover all sorts of stuff we like and just create our own sound. I'm not seeking to replicate a particular tone, but a big fan of The Beatles, Psychedelic 60's, British Invasion, Rolling Stones, Black Keys, U2, White Stripes, Lenny Kravitz, etc. As of now, I am playing an Epiphone Casino (61 reissue) through a Vox Pathfinder with a Hoof Fuzz as my lone effect. I also have a DS-1, but I don't care for it whatsoever. I'm now in the market for a tube amp and need some help with amp and pedal acquisitions... 1) I love the sound I get out of my Pathfinder and have kind of settled on the Vox AC15C1. It is within my price range, especially used and I haven't found a better fit in that price range. I've played one a few times at GC and it seems great, but I don't have much to compare it to. One of the criticisms I seem to see consistently is that the Vox AC's don't handle low end or some drive pedals well for that Dan Auerbach type tone. I have seen vids of him playing through a Marshall head and it seems to have that Vox-ish type bite to my ears, but I am still fairly new to guitar and amp tone. I know I love the cleans on it, but will the AC15C1 satisfy my desire for that vintage, bluesy, crunchy tone? 2) Would a darker overdrive, such as the Way Huge Green Rhino, fit with the AC15? And how would it affect the tone? 3) I love the sound of Fuzz pedals, and I intend to buy more. How is an AC15 with fuzz? 4) Does anyone skip the distortion altogether and just use an overdrive along with a couple of fuzzes set for different tones? I appreciate any help or input!
