Mikko's talk of awesome AC-30 tones on the forum reminded me that some of the best rock tones can be had from a really pushed AC-30. It overdrives in this way that's really compressed, but smooth, and it sounds freakin' awesome with a hollowbody guitar in front of it. You keep some chirp on the notes, but you get this deep grind that all AC-30. Check out some 90s-era Our Lady Peace or Foo Fighters to see what I mean.
It's a favourite of Bob Rock and Joel Kosche too so I did a little Collective Soul clip to show it off here: https://soundcloud.com/iaresee/quantum-creamy-ac-30
