Orange Tiny Terror with tubescreamer/a good overdrive.

That combination is pure sex.

The Classic 30 is so much better than the TT. But neither does metal, so you're looking at the wrong amps to begin with.

Or a Hardwire CM-2.

You can get a really tight 80s metal tone (Like slayer or judas priest) with just an EQ pedal.

Tiny Terror, it's a great amp, my friend has one and it's a great amp. Drops down to 7w for bedroom practice as well. Get a good overdrive thought, to get the balls you will need for metal as the amp sounds a little british on its own.

if youre playing a lot of metal, be wary that both these amps have more of a vintage voicing. even though they have enough gain to get into metal territory, they do not sound "correct" for it. for example in robchappers' video of the tiny terror doing metal, we can tell that its got enough gain but a "scooped presence" that a similar-priced metal amp like a bugera would have isn't there.

Neither. The TT is a good amp and can peak in classic metal but it doesn't really excel at it. The Classic is more versitile but doesn't sound quite as good IMO.

Get the smaller, higher gained and just as versatile Blackstar HT-5. Smaller than the TT so it is the most bedroom friendly with the high sound quality of the TT and the versilitlity of the Classic. It also has more gain than both and can do metal quite well on its own IMO.

If I had to pick between the two, I'd say get the Classic 30, but as the poster above said, a Blackstar HT-5 MIGHT be a little bit better for bedroom levels. Alternatively, at somewhat close to the same price, you might want to look at Bugeras. Despite some reliability issues, they get an amazing metal tone compared to C30 and TT.

Maybe I'll shake things up a bit and say that the TT is not a good amp.
Overpriced, tonally flat, lacking in bite, one-dimensional, and WAY underfeatured for the price. It's voiced for a vintage British crunch. It's not a metal amp. If one more person posts a Chappers video as evidence that Oranges are t3h m3t@l, I'm going to scream. He has bad tone. You might be able to make an Orange do metal, but they aren't metal amps. See the difference?


Now, the Classic 30 is a good amp, but not for metal. Again, can do metal, but not a metal amp.


I second the HT-5. Also, a Randall RG-50TC won't be much louder than a Classic 30 if you're into bedroom. Since most of the stuff you mentioned is all about the preamp gain, you can get the proper tones at any volume.

+1 I seriously did not like the TT when I tried it. I actually didn't like any orange I tried..

If you're not playing a lot of metal or it's not teh br00tals the C30 would be a great amp.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Hey the Orange TT can do metal just look at Rob Chappers!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uig9BEE-JCY and he has great tone!

Try going to my profile for a decent TT metal tone, Chappers' tone is only good for doom metal.
