i've heard so many good things about the orange one, but that haydn one looks such great value for money. buy both, problem: sorted xD

ORange - great sounds, not much versatility
Hayden - Versatility in a small package, not very welll thought out...

I'd go for the Orange.


Dempsey, I have tried your chord and must say it is alright.

Personally I thought the Orange sounded awful when turned up loud. It also dosn't have an effects loop.

The Hayden is a lot more versatile in my opinion, it does have an effects loop (although its a strange one input, Y cable type one). It also looks a lot cooler, I think, if that matters at all.

The Hayden is also cheaper.

The Orange probably has more gain, but the gain isn't as usable as the Haydens in my opinion.

The orange actually has two channels, where as the Hayden dosn't, but it does have the 'mofo' boost mode.

The Hayden is a far better amp in my opinion.

Also if you're lucky you'll get a handwired and signed by Dave Green one.

do you need two channels and high gain?

if not- valvepower 18 watter is worth considering too (i haven't tried the two amps you listed)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I could do with two channels, but i could just use pedals.

And don't really need high gain.

how much gain do you need? the vp might be ok, but it doesn't have as much as even something like a tiny terror.

The Orange Dual Terror has a lot of gain, and most of it is surprisingly functional. It's loud but still great for home use. The clean tones are pretty dull - they're way too thick and "straight" (i.e. there is little in the way of dynamics and spontaneity) - but that's not what it was really designed for. It's best when you stick it in 7 watt mode, crank the master volume and crank the gain. It's a little too loud if you have angry neighbours, but fine otherwise.

I haven't played the Mofo but I hear it's not particularly aggressive, while the Dual Terror is, I know that for sure. Also, Orange amps tend to be a little "dark" in that they don't have huge amounts of presence, treble or midrange. And that suits certain genres of music - notably stoner rock/metal, alternative indie and doom - but it can be tricky with modern forms of metal or strict blues.

For your style of music, I'd probably recommend the Orange over the Hayden, but I can't say for sure.

I have the Orange and it's fantastic. The thing is, it will start to sound lackluster as your strings die, you can't get away with having the same set on your guitar for a month at a time. New strings really make the cleans bloom, I get an amazingly open sound without any reverb.

I'd get the Mofo just to be different. Sexy looking too.
