I was wondering how loud a Vox AC15 can get and stay clean? Could you gig with the volume???
#3
So like it could stay absolutely clean and play to oh say 100-300 people? I want to just use pedals for my blues and rock crunch sounds

^No, it will have a hard time being heard over the drums clean, if you wish to stay clean get the AC30, or the Peavey Classic 30. The Classic are similar to an AC 30 but closer to the AC15 price tag, and sound really good, they are not an AC 30, but IMO is a much better sounding amp than the AC15, which isn't really a smaller AC30 its something all its own. If your wanting to stay clean and with a gigging amp the look into something around 30 watts or more.

My ****ing ass it has a hard time getting over the drums clean.

My friend was borrowing one from my other friend, and it got over the drums cleanly just fine.

But a Peavey Classic 30 would ensure a clean tone that gets over drums even during bigger gigs with a few hundred people?
#8
i doubt it could do 100-300 people clean without a pa. it can easily beat the drums though.

Well I think I like the idea of a Peavey Classic 30 anyway. The cleans on it are much louder no? And the amp overdrive should be fairly usable?

play before you post
It will so easily get over any drummer clean, as will any other quality amp over 10 watts
Ts buy it. Don't let people who obviously never gigged with the gear they make out to know everything about, fool you. Trust me the ac15 will have LOUD cleans. And very very good cleans too. Search the forum. This exact debate has been up I donøt konw how many times within the last month

Yup i dont see why the cleans would be loud enough.

On a BJ maybe cause they brake up quicker even tough there the same wattage, but not on the AC15 the amp is damn loud, i was surprised how much room it had for cleans volume wise before breaking.
