I am thinking about getting a Vox AC15cc1. i play mainly classic rock (Zeppelin, AC/DC, Queen) I have not had a chance to try out the Vox myself yet, but from the videos I've seen, it can get a pretty good distortion on its own.

But, I have been told I should get a pedal if I want to come close the Jimmy Page distortion sound. What would be a good one to get?
I'll pretend I can mod your amp but break it instead.

Boss DS-1 distortion and OD-something overdrive are good ones. I myself have an Ibanez DS-7 and ****ing love it. It gets good distortion and good overdrive depending on the settings.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

I have an AC15. Sometimes it doesn't give out enough gain on its own.

However, if you're gonna use a pedal, make sure you do the bright cap mod, it sounds okay without, but just okay.

Oh yeah TREBLE BOOSTER. DO EET! Classic Rock tone right there!

just got the OD808 awesome dude. really nice crunch, but definitely not a heavy distortion by any means, just a very nice, subtle crunch to it. in fact i would say it is crunchy!
