Good stoner rock amp?

Hi, ive been playing for about 3 years now and i have gotten very into Stoner rock/metal like Sleep, Electric Wizard, Uncle Acid, Fuzz Manta, Acid King, and Kyuss. I have a Samick AV6 and a Line 6 Spider 4 (i think, i am horrible at roman #'s) Recently ive grown tired of my Line 6, mainly because it is impossible to get a sound seperate from the 4 presets that the amp comes with (although it is a great practice/starter amp.) I have been looking around at some amps and noticed that Josh Homme (Kyuss, QOTSA) stated in an interview they he uses an Ampeg VT40. I have also consiered using my bass amp (Ampeg BA-115) for the lower tone. Does anybody out there know about any good stoner rock amps? Money isnt really an issue.

Laney AOR is a great stoner amp and it is really cheap used. They average $299-$399 for the 50 or 100 watt versions. This is what Sleep used

If you want to spend a little more money

Orange AD30
Orange OR50
Orange TH30
Orange Thunder 100
Orange Thunderverb50
Laney GH50/100/100TI

Yeah deff Sunn, but they are quite hard to come by these days, thats why I did not mention them. Matamp and Electric amps are very expensive, but really good for Stoner/doom

Totaly forgot the Sovtek MIG 100

This, mostly. Electric Wizard toured with Rectos, and I've seen bands with anything from Marshall Superbasses to 5150s playing stoner/doom/sludge.

Probably others
