If I Had a TT could i use it to gig or should i get a dual TT? Also id be throwing in a cab with two vintage 30's. The size of the gig is about a size of a standard gym (not a gym but a size of one ...yeah ok a gym) . Idk if i could mic it but ill see if i can and would it be possible to use it for band practice un miced. (Metal band btw and ill be throwing a boost and maybe if needed a dist. pedal in the mix as well.)
I use a line 6 what of it?

TT is not really suitable for most types of metal, at all.
Rob Chappers would disagree he has a few vids of him playing a TT metal and all he used was a boost. Though i can understand if your saying that the TT is not made for metal but can play it and there are more sutible amps for the genre at around the same price out there. The only problem is that im going to be using it for a alt rock band as well as a metal band so problem solved with a boost and dist running to a TT.

Chappers' tone is absolutely awful. The TT isn't voiced for metal. No Orange really is. They might be able to do passable metal, but it doesn't make them metal amps.

Don't judge me.

I'm an Orange fan (heck I LOVE my Rocker 30) but I agree that they aren't really metal amps. Oranges have a rather "loose" sound and it isn't very tight. They're great for Stoner, but not really metal. Also keep in mind Chappers is endorsed by Orange so he can't really say anything bad about them... (Not that I have that much to say that's bad about them though...)

I played a gig with my TT this week and got an excellent metal tone and surprisingly good cleans without having to touch the amp during the set.

I agree Rob Chappers tone is awful, but the TT sounds a lot better with an OD pedal and a lower gain PI valve.
A metal band?

Unmic'ed, you'll have to get your power amp cooking which sucks for tight metal riffing. Mic'ed, with a boost and/or active pickups, it's a possibility.

He clearly says for band practice.

I'm not sure how loud TT's get, but I would think there is enough volume to jam with even a loud drummer. I have an Egnater and it doesn't need to leave the 1w setting.

That's because that knob does just about nothing.

ok.. i have the TT.. its loud enough to jam with a loud drummer.. it's also loud enough to gig with un-miced. it's one channel, so as you turn the gain up, you get more volume without even adjusting the volume knob.. i rarely take the gain up above 6 or 7 for punk stuff..

the gain does not sound very metal, and it doesn't take pedals very well at loud volumes (because the tubes are already distorting the tone)

Basically, don't get the TT if you want metal.. get a valveking or something

Yeah, it raises and lowers the wattage of the amp, from 1-20w. There isn't gonna be a huge jump in volume, mostly headroom and the way it drives lower wattage speakers.For instance, I use AlNiCo Blues and can tell quite a difference in how hard the speaker gets pushed, when I adjust the knob.

i agree with those who suggested bugera. the tt can do gigs but has more of a vintage voicing than a metal one.
