So, I'm looking at getting a new practice/band practice amp which is easier to move around than my Peavey Valveking stack

I've been looking on youtube and I like the sound of both the Peavey and Orange, but are you paying more for the Peavey's extra effects rather than a good amp? I don't think I'll use the effects.

I play mostly metal, and I've heard people say the Orange can't do metal, but a lot of videos on youtube say otherwise.

So which do you think would be better? Or any other recommendations in the same price range?

This is a sig...
i have the 60w tube vypyr and i love the thing to death. id def go with the vypyr
the orange crush most definetely can not do metal on its own. take the vypyr for metal.

The Vypyr has massively thick high gain tones, too. It's awrsome! misspelling intentional

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
There's really no competition here between the amps. The Vypyr is a very versatile and great sounding practise amp. The Crush is not.
