Orange Thunder 30 or Thunderverb 50 ?


I'm about to buy a new amp and I want an Orange.
I was quite sure about the Thunder 30 but then I found a Thunderverb 50 second hand.
The Thunder 30 is 760 new and the Thunderverb 50 is 1000-1100 used.

What do I want?
Good warm and defined cleans (but dark is a plus)
Cleans have to be loud enough for rehearsal with 2 guitar players and a fairly loud drummer but may be on the verge of breaking up (or even breaking up a little)
Gain like a wall of sound but every note is hearable (NOT scooped super gain but great mids)
I play Postrock / postmetal with some doom influences...

Any suggestions, experiences with either of the amps?

Other recommendations for my style of music are also welcome (if u really feel the need :p)

Thanks !

The Thunderverb is definitely the one you want. Superior tone, superior build quality, more versatility, more headroom for cleans and tigher dirt.

It is a better sounding amp (not that the TH30 is bad). And the Thunderverb has more control over your tone

Thunderverb will have far better components, made in England, better resale value, and is overall just a better amp. Don't get me wrong I am a fan of the Thunder/Rocker series but they still don't stack up to a real Thunderverb.
Gear list here.

Check out my band!
