1.how well do they take pedals?
2.how much gain do they pump out?
3.how are the crunch/cleans?
4.with an OD can it do teh br00talz m3tul?
5.why are they so renowned?

Depends on which ones you're looking at but if you're looking at a Rockerverb 50/100 for example you can tick every box. They have more than enough gain for all metal styles, but sometimes need an OD or EQ in the loop to tighten/brighten things up.

They are so renowned because they are terrific amps in general. You can't really go wrong with a good Orange amp, they also invented the Effects loop

Orange amps are all different based on model. Pick a model to ask those questions about.

In that case how about the rockerverb/thunderverbs?

1. Just as well as any decent amp.

2. Depends which Orange you're talking about. All of them apart from the Tiny/Dual Terror sound good in my opinion. Unless you play death metal, they all have a considerable amount of gain, that's what they've always been known for.

3. The Orange crunch is typically 'darker' sounding the a Marshall's crunch, I personally much prefer an Orange for most things. The cleans on all Orange amps that I've played through have been good (apart from the Tiny Terror), they're not as good as a Fender Twin or a Vox AC30 or anything, but I suppose it all depends on what you're looking for.

4. Depending on how br00tz you want to go, some of them could do it without an OD in my opinion.. But with one, you could do pretty much anything.

5. Because they are orange in colour, seriously.... But it just so happens that they sound fooking awsome aswell. Many famous people used them too, which helps anything become popular.

I have an AD 30 that I love (though it just died on me, still trying to figure out why)
it's a very straight forward amp, but it has great cleans and an amazing overdriven tone. I don't play metal and I don't know if it could go there, but it can get quite saturated =)

Oranges to me are like grumpy Marshalls.

They're pretty cool I guess if you're into that kind of sound. I prefer the sound of a Marshall for most purposes. They make some typical, mid gain amps similar to what you'd get in a plexi or JCM800 and then they have some higher gain, modern sounding amps. They all have that dark, growly, fuzzy tone though. It's a love-hate thing.
