Like everyone has stated, it's more like a hybrid/ tube power amp kind of deal and sounds like a Twin. They are good sounding amps.

I've merely borrowed one, but it sounds similar to an AC15 when set clean. There are a lot more options with the EQ and tone in general. The half power switch is nice and the thick mode can sound...

Ah, I've considered the Soul Food. It seems like a good deal, but I've wondered about the Xotic AC Booster. I've actually played an OCD and it has a bit too much mojo for how I want to use it...I...

On the contrary. A modeling amp would probably be the BEST, CHEAPEST, and SIMPLEST solution for you. The Vypyr 60 is seriously a good sounding amp that meets your budget. You'll be pulling teeth...

The Dual Rectifier can probably be dialed in to have a better clean sound, but the 6505+ with a boost is already in the right zone for the distorted tones. You should try it out, but the Dual...

I couldn't really hear a big difference. They both sounded the same to me, when I tried one, but someone else might have had a different experience. They SHOULDN'T sound different though.

You will drown out a 100 watt bass amp with that, but yes to everything. I'd actually look into Weber Blue Dogs, and alnico if possible.

A 6505/5150 would be perfect for the tones he wants. That's what Machine Head plays and nearly every modern metal band has at least used one at one point or another, whether live or in the studio.

It's probably one of better overdrives for subtle crunch and boosting in that price range. I'm getting one soon.

I'm actually curious about those. I love tube amps, and I have one, but good quality (supposedly/hopefully) SS amps intrigue me. Let us know how it works out.

The AC15 is really only different in the amount of headroom (it's also a little bit less smooth than the AC30 to my ears, but that is subjective). You will get crunchy at a much lower volume. Trust...
