stepping up my tone. I've narrowed it down to two amps. The Orange Tiny terror combo and The vox ac30. Im not to concerned with power. Tell me what you think. Share your opinion.

This, and are you aware that there's is a big price difference (almost 1000$) between those two?

I can understand a night train and terror, but thats a big price difference like the above said.

Vox fo sho. I can't stand the TT. It's way too muddy.

that's kinda like asking "do you like apples or baseball?"

I like apples... and the Vox

VOX AC30 , it speaks for itself.
Quote by ljohn
The thing is, in a band like chickenfoot, think of the JSX as a submarine and the Marshall as a plane. No matter how good the submarine is, it might be the perfect submarine, if you need a plane, a submarine ain't gonna do it for you.

to give TS a little more info on these, other than which one we all seem to prefer...

the AC30 is a classic, has been used on countless major productions since it's release in 1958. charchterized by it's smooth and gentle, yet creamy breakup when overdriven, and sparkling clean tones, the ac30 is a favorite amongst country, classic rock, and inde musicians.

My experience with the Tiny Terror is rather limited; however, another amp by Orange that could in some ways be considered "on par" would be their rockverb, which is reminiscent of classic "british" voiced amps, albeit with a little more umph.

while both amps are suitable, and in many cases ideal, for classic rock type tones, the rockverb wins in aggression, whereas the ac30 has substantially better cleans and arguably better dynamics.

i suppose in many ways it boils down to mikey's question, what style will you be playing (if you had to narrow it down to one style that best suits your desired tone). perhaps neither of these amps would be best in your case?

from a personal standpoint, i find it extremely hard to NOT find a use for the ac30, regardless of genre, even in metal (if only to layer certain parts). i really love that amp... and have serious GAS for the 2004 model, though i wouldn't reccommend it as your primary amp if you do infact play heavier styles of music.
#13
I would've thought that the Orange AD 30 combo would be a more equal match between a Vox AC30.

The Tiny Terror is rather overrated. It was great when it came out, but now there are many better amps. But the AC30 is a classic and one of the best bang for the buck amps you can find!

The cheapest AC30s are like 1000-1500$
I think you are not talking about the right amp there, maybe you mean the AC 15? It would make more sense

Edit:
AC30: http://www.proguitarshop.com/product.php?ProductID=364&CategoryID=
AC15: http://www.proguitarshop.com/product.php?ProductID=361&CategoryID=


But, anyway, the vox is better than the TT by far imo

If your only deciding between the tt and the ac30, go for the ac30. BUT!!!! What I'm saying is, go for the orange dual terror, its like the tiny terror but has 2 channels and one you could make your clean I tried and ac30 combo, and it sounded a little too bright for me... but seriously, check out the Dual Terror.

hats, call it a personal bias, i'd take the original over the clone any day... thought i'd throw something in the mix that presented a legitimate condender.

TS, there's a lot of amps out there, what drew you to these two?

lolz makes a good point. if you're looking at the TT, you might as well look at the DT, but neither holds a candle to the ac30. what you really need to do is find a dealer of many amp brands and just go nuts trying **** out.

i hope you don't mean the AC30, because originals of those can cost nearly $10 000. not really within reach of the average guitarist.

no, i'm talking about the original company's reissues, not an actual $8K original.

like i may have mentioned before, i like the 2004 reissue.

You can not get wrong with AC30 ever.But it is easy for me.I own both AC30 and TT (and AD30HTC+40 amps mostly Hughes and Kettner ).But if you looking for AC30 you can maybe look for Framus Ruby Riot 2 (I own 1 and 2, but 2 have better distortion).It is a little better then AC30 (for me of course).Clean is directly from heaven .
