    At one time I owned a Relic Tele, a Klon and an AC30. Tone does not get much better than that! Muscular, beefy, ballsy - I loved it. Not sure why I sold that gear off....

    I love my Silver China Cot50 and my Replica. For my strat and lap steel I can keep the amp clean/semi clean. Waiting on my JJ tube kit and 200lbs of tone.

    My dirt pedals, from left to right on your dial:

    RC Boost; Hot Cake; Crunch Box; Peppermint Fuzz

    AC15H1TV right up to the edge of breakup, (which is pretty loud) and they all do pretty well. Oh, and I'm playing strats.

    I use the FDII with an original expandora. I think it sounds pretty good. The expandora is a little thin but coupled with the FDII it makes for killer OD.

    I got a hotcake after many reports on this board that it was superb with an AC30, but it didn't work for me at all. Always seemed to be something "metallic" about it's tone that I didn't like.
    My crunchBox seems to work well with anything I use it with, including the AC30. Blue boy deluxe is also excellent with my AC30.

    Barber Tone Press, Small Fry, and Nova Delay. Unbelievable with an AC15cc. Stunning, really. I have to assume it would be even better with the AC30.

    Keeley BD-2 and Fuzzhead sound really good with my AC30. I think it takes everything I throw at it really well.

    I think they take anything frontend to be honest. Overloading the input just seems to enhance any effect and gives you more dynamics ad response to envelope effects.

    The vox pedals do tend to sound best through an AC30 too.
