I just saw these online and was shocked to see it's only $120. I might pick one up to travel around with. I play Hard rock,Thrash, and Heavy metal and do use pedals (distortion/OD). What do you guys think about them?

Don't!!!!!!!!!

I got one today for £10 - not a typo - £10. My friend bequeathed it to me until I can save up for a better amp as my Vox died on me, but it is really really bad. I was going to post my un-epic amp day thread tonight but this will do, as I'm too embarrassed to make a song and dance about it!

It doesn't do anything well at all.

They are okay, I suppose. For a particular purpose - traveling around/bedroom practise - they do the job. But I still stand by the Valvetronix series as a far better alternative. You can pick one up for

The Vypyr series is also worth mentioning, as is the Cube series.
Kustom make some nice practise amps too:

I have one it's a decent amp, mainly it's the reverb that makes it sound good. The overdrive isn't that good but the clean channel is decent and it works good with pedals. I used it happily for two years before I got my tube amp.

Sorry. I hate Modeling amps and Vox wouldn't be my first choice anyway. Though there are several people at my school who swear by them.

I love the sound of it (don't have one though). It's not your average amp, it has it's own charactor. Don't get it f you want the sound of your average say marshall SS.

Bad thing is I'm in the US and no one has them.

i used my orange crush 10 for 3 years straight, and was relatively happy with it. but i suppose i was no tone nazi. it serves the job well, and imo it has a nice blues overdrive, but will not suit you well for metal.

I've had the misfortune of having both a Marshall MG and now an Orange Crush, as a stand in amp whilst I save up/wait for an amp to be repaired. Hand on heart, the Marshall was better out of both of them, although both are not very good.

Like the Marshall MG series, the Orange Crush amps sound nothing like a real Orange amp.

Get a Valvetronix or a Vypyr, don't fool yourself into thinking that because it doesn't do modelling it is some pure toned beast. If you want a good solid state, get a Tech 21 Trademark 30. It is basically a Sansamp with a speaker, so you can get metal tone you'd want, and you'd sound good too.

1. Not looking for a different amp just asking about the cheaper oranges for travel
2. I hate Both of those amps
3. I don't like most modeling amps (haven't played one i liked yet)
Thanks for trying though
