Orange OR15H advice

Hello,

I sold my JVM cause it was an overkill for me. I'm more of a purist.
The Crunch Orange and Red which is a JCM800 sounding one was great anyway.

So I'm currently looking for a lower wattage amp for practise _only_ .
A JCM800-ish amp with one channel. It just need enough gain for classic heavy metal.
Got a Maxon OD808 for boost if needed. I mostly play Stoner Rock/Metal.

My first thought was the JCM1, but it's pretty expensive.

Would the OR15H be a good choice and do you have any other suggestions?

The or15 isn't very Marshally because, unsurprisingly, it sounds like an Orange.

A proper little kick ass vintage Orange at that, I love it, it's one of my favourite amps at the moment, would love to be able to afford one, working in a guitar shop I can play on it whenever I want doesn't ease the GAS any either.

It's a proper vintage British crunch sound and will probably do what you want without any effort.

Then you need an Orange. The Tiny Terror series is awesome if you have access to a cab in your practice space.

I'll second the Tiny Terror suggestion. Marshall Class5 also comes to mind.

I much prefer the OR15 over the Tiny Terror. It sounds fatter and less fizzy.
