    I had an ac15c1 for a few years. The cut knob on amp along with the guitar tone allowed me to tone the high end down enough to get a good blues sound. I've always played an SG, so if youre using a strat....might be harder.

    To such a statement, I can only say that the reported inability is wrongly put on the amp's choice.

    You asked.

    I think he is meaning 'if you can't make it work for blues its not the amp'

    I'd agree. Blues is a type of music, not a tone.

    Especially once you've heard Doug and Pat and that Ac10 SRT

    I read about lots of players who want a VOX to sound like a Fender or even a Marshall. Really not going to happen...

    Kid Ramos does alright through an AC 30 : )

    Use what you like, enjoy what you have.

    Right, because who says blues require a certain amp or a certain guitar? Some of the best blues playing I ever heard was when I was a kid, 12 or 13, and I saw a guy playing an old beat up Danelectro through a portable TV set.
