I currently have a Vox ac15. I liked it at first, but I have a few things that keep me from wanting to keep 7it. First of all, it weighs too much (I know some of you think 50 pounds is nothing compared to a 70 pound twin, but 50 pounds for a 15 watt amp seems insane to me.) secondly, The chime of the amp is starting to make me sick. I love the tone of Vox amps when other people play them, but I cannot for the life of me enjoy it with my own playing. It's bright but in an annoying way with my playing. And thirdly, The reverb tank rattles (atleast I think it's the reverb tank) and thats a common thing with ac15s. I want an American sounding amp. Fender I think being the way to go. It would be nice to get a bad cat, a jackson, or a third power, but let's be real here.... I can't afford that crap. I know Blues JRs are really popular bedroom amps, and a lot of people have success gigging with them, but what is your opinion on that? Does Fender have another tube option in the 30lb range? Would it be smarter to go head and cab instead of combo? If so what's your suggestion? Help?
