I've been getting into stoner rock, and I was wondering what would be the best amp for it. I'm probadly going trade in/sell my Vox Valvetronix's for it, so the price range would be around $700 or so.

Whatever Josh Homme used when he was with Kyuss.
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

Stoner amps? Old Laney AOR amps, Orange amps, Bad Cat amps, Marshall amps...

For your price range though. Check out Traynor YCV amps, Crate Palomino amps...

I'd say it's how you use it, not what you own.

Best stoner amp would be a Matamp GTL of sorts, or the new GT1 but they're like £1000/$2000 so not in your budget..

If it fits your budget, get a Tiny Terror and a 2x12 cab. Upgrade the speakers to greenbacks later down the track.. Should be great for stoner rock.

When I think of stoner rock, stuff like sublime comes to mind...

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

stoner rock sucks.


If stoner rock sucks, then you swallow good sir. I'm just kidding!

But yeah, CanCan makes a valid point. You could do Stoner Rock on just about any amplifier so long as you play your cards right.

You could EQ your amp to get the right sound but you can get a good deal by selling your AD100VT so it's really up to you.


Josh Homme plays through Ampeg bass amps but I don't recommend them if you want more versatility. Although they are excellent.

One of the local stoner rock bands here in town (Blood of the Sun) has a guitarist who plays a beautiful Les Paul (tobacco-burst Custom) through an Orange stack. Damn. Tone.
Whatever Josh recorded "Sky Valley" on is probably the holy grail, though.

I have the valvetronix too, but I think it sounds great for stoner rock!! Other then that, I would think any regular tube amp would be just fine....no more than two channels of course.....stoner rock.....how about Black Crowes maybe?? they are stoners and they Rock!!

Orange and Bad Cat amps will do the best. I know both are expensive, but you get what you pay for with them, and it's great sound!

Las week I tried a Schecter Ultra III into a Tiny Terror with a 2x12 cab and I managed to get a very very similar sound to QOTSA.
