Also, remember that the vox AC line doesn't have footswitchable distortion. It can be "blended", but I'll be damned if I can figure out how the fuck to do that properly. I sold my AC 30 because it was too god damned heavy to lug around to gigs. I was using the AC 30 for distortion and a deluxe deville for clean. Now I use the deluxe for both.
Just look at decent practice amps. I agree with line 6 amps, as they're versatile and most have onboard effects. But if you can snag a decent vintage 5-18 watt amp, I would do it. Some of them can get pricey though.
Whining about someone disclosing their salary on a message forum usually leads to said whiner being a broke dick. If you don't like it, go elsewhere.
