If you can't fix it yourself, don't bother. If you do do it yourself try to get one with a higher voltage rating than the one that was in it. Same capacitance but higher voltage. You'll have to check for scorching elsewhere on the board before even bothering. Caps will blow all by themselves at times but you'll want to be checking that nothing shorted out downstream that caused it.

AH! im not alone

i had the EXACT same thing as you,
i have the same amp, an Orange crush 30r

i was plugging in the cable in my guitar and i heard a loud BANG, then something fell out of the back (the tube thing), i looked at my amp and there was smoke coming out of it, and the dent in the screen is there too (looks even bigger on mine)

here's a pic:

but now im wondering, since i was googling for it in the first place, did you get it fixed and if so how much did it cost?

i really loved this amp so i would like to get this fixed maybe, but then again i'm on a low budget (student).. (also a reason why i can't really buy a new amp)
