I have some Mesa V30's I threw in my 2x12 Avatar cab. My 66 never sounded better. Add my OD808 in front and it's JTM Marshall Angus Young tone, without tinnitus.. Every time I plug into to the 66 it blows my mind.. Nothing inhales pedals like this amp..
Yeah for that kind of tone the midrange of the amp and that extra upper mid whack you get from a Vintage 30 should be a good combination. When you add the TS you get even more midrange honk so you will be heard!
My favourite speaker is the G12H30 anniversary, I have both the 1x12 DrZ cab and a 2x12" closed back for larger rooms. Yes, I play The Blues! The only other speaker I would consider is the Creamback, I tried a friends 2x12" Two Rock cab with the 66 head and is was great sounding but not that much different from the 2x12" G12H30.
Lately I have gone tired of the Tube Screamer honk, The 66 has plenty of midrange and I am using the Joyo Sweet Baby which is leaving my basic sound untouched but just adds a bit of sweet sweet grit. For solos I boost it with the Joyo booster. For more drive songs I use a homebuilt Zendrive clone which has a bit of that midrange honk too but such a sweet sound.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
