"Amp-wise, Mascis turned to classic British and American combos to provide the thunderous tones that are such a powerful feature of I Bet On Sky. 'I used a '59 Vox AC15 and a [(Fender) Tweed Deluxe](http://equipboard.com/items/fender-deluxe-amp) and a [Tweed Bandmaster](http://equipboard.com/items/fender-bandmaster),' he explains." - [*Music Radar*](http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/interview-j-mascis-on-fender-jazzmasters-fuzz-pedals-and-i-bet-on-sky-567500).more
"Also, a good friend of mine named Jon Gries, here in Los Angeles, has tons of vintage gear. He brought me all kinds of microphones and pedals and guitars, including a vintage Les Paul. He also brought a vintage Vox AC30 and an AC15, and a bunch of old pedals [...]" - Bingham in an interview with Gibson.com in 2012.more
This amp is pretty cool. I use this one in stereo with my HRD. I like the contrast between the warmer, more bassy HRD and the brightness of the Vox. I get a really wide range of sound when using them together. Only 15 watts, though. Not enough headroom for me to use on its own, but it still sounds great!
I got the Blue Alcino speakers version of this amp, and its glorious, it really is, the tone variety of it is amazing. Delivering vintage tones, it goes from Rock Blues, to Modern Metal tones. I got this amp because its used by some of my favorite bands of all time. Nirvana used an AC-30 on nevermind, but the ac-30 is just a louder version of this anyways.... The Foo Fighters used one too, The Beatles, yep! But even bands which might not have used this amp, you could probably get their tones anywho....Such an amazing amp..
