Well I'm thinking about getting this amp but I was wondering whether it can pull off Frusciante cleans and Slash tones. I also play Zeppelin sort of stuff but I think it could do that. My dream amp is a Marshall Silver Jubilee 2550 but that's like double the price of the Orange. I'm just asking because there is one for £550 2nd hand. Or should i just save money and get a Laney VC30 and an OD/Speaker & Tube change/Both?

I think it does Frusciante cleans quite well, and it could cover Zeppelin type stuff. Slash tones I'm less sure about. You really need to try it out in a shop, even if you buy second hand.

Also talking of second hand, I've got one that I'd sell for about £520 if you wanted, it's less than 6 months old and it's basically in new condition!!

I have a Rocker 30 that the other guitarist from my band uses. It can defiently do Frusice cleans and Zep overdrive. I don't play a lot of G'n'R, but I've had no problem getting a Slash tone out of mine.

+1 the rocker 30 is a great amp, but for a bit more money, you could get the AD30, which is about 1000 times more versatile. But you should try them out if you can, before you but it.

Yeah the problem with the 2550 clone is it costs more and I would have to buy a cab too. And I'll have a look for a 2nd hand AD30 because £800 is too much.

And also to the guy who wanted to sell his, if it's the combo then maybe.

It would have no problem with frusciante cleans and Zep overdrive tones and Slashs rhythm tones should be no problem but for his lead tones you might need a bit of a kick from an OD pedal

It can do those tones very very well. Anything more and i recommend a fulltone ocd to boost it.
