    Do AC15s handle fuzzy/stoner sounds well?

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy my first amp and I've been looking at an AC15 for a while now, I love their classic rock tones and when I've played through software emulations of them, I've found that I can get a satisfying stoner rock/doom sound out of them, but I know software and real life can differ quite a bit. I know the standard advice for stoner and especially doom would be to buy an Orange, and while I love Orange's doom tones, I don't care much for their less aggressive classic rock tones, plus the only Oranges I can afford are the solid state ones, and I'd really prefer a tube amp (I'm looking at used AC15s, they're at the very upper limit of my price limit. I know OR15s can be had for similar amounts of money, but I wouldn't have the money to buy a cab.) So does anyone here have any experience trying to get stoner/doom tones out of Vox amps, and if so, what would you recommend?vidmate mobdro word counter

    I would say no, only because I associate doom/stoner with super high headroom amps with big bottles.

    What I've found while looking at making a decent bedroom rig for doom, its more about playing it loud through a 2/4x12 and just getting the air moving. I've seen videos of people cranking Micro Darks just fine for doom, so it all depends how you run the amp.
