Hi guys. So I've narrowed my choices down considerably. These two options are pretty night and day, but I can't really decide.

Option 1: Orange Dual Terror with PPC112 cabinet
- Should be able to get it for a total of around $1000.
- So-so cleans with a great stock overdrive, haven't got a chance to try it out, but it really seems to have that crunch and amount of gain I've been looking for.
- Ability to switch wattage (good for playing live, or bedroom levels)
- much less versatility

Option 2: Fender Blues Junior + Carl Martin Plexitone + MXR Carbon Copy
- Total should come out to around $900/1000 as well
- Great cleans, plexitone will add good crunch
- always wanted to have a delay

Which would you guys choose?

I've got an orange boner, so I'd probably go with the dual terror.


Me too!

AHH! I knew asking you guys wouldn't help at all. I've been obsessively looking for amps to buy. I'll be selling my Taylor DN3 so will be coming into a bit of money .

I think both are great options. I've just been listening to Orange clips and want one sooo bad. But at the same time, the blues jr. option would also be SO worthwhile!

Does anyone know how well the Dual Terror takes pedals?

Which do you/would you use more, cleans or distortion?

I definitely value good cleans. I have a Fender Deluxe (just too big and loud for my needs really). But at this point in time, I've realized my tastes are more suited to good overdrive and distortion.

Thing with the blues jr. would be that the plexitone would provide really good distortion as well I'm pretty sure. But would that compare with the distinct tone of Orange amps? Dunno.

I would take a Blues Junior any day of the week over a Chinese Orange made out of sheet metal and whatever electronics they had lying around.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Tough call. I'd probably go for the Orange but that delay is really tempting. Perhaps wait and get those two.

what tones do you want? and what is your budget?

How do you think the Orange will take a delay pedal? I was kinda turned off by the lack of an effects loop, but if it sounds ok, then it wouldn't be too much of a negative.

Led Zeppelin, SRV, Jimi Hendrix, RHCP, Pink Floyd, Santana, Muse, John Mayer, Cream

Mostly classic rock, some decent cleans would be nice, obviously. Would like the extra gain for some lead work/soloing.

Budget is around $1000 but its very flexible.

If you are pairing the Blues Junior with a plexi-stye pedal, that leads me to believe you want plexi-style tones.

The Orange does not provide those tones. They do their own thing, and they do it well, but its not plexi tone.
#17
I was going to say Orange (And that would be my personal choice), but after looking through the tones you want, I'd say the Fender setup would be better. And I'd recommended a DD-7 over the CC, unless you've spent alot of time using one and you're sure it's what you want.

For that, I would definitely go blues jr. The Orange is just a little too dark, dirty and modern sounding to get good convincing classic rock tones, but that's just my opinion.

I'd get the mud (Orange)!!!

For the sounds you listed the BJ is the obvious choice. Depending on where you are they're cheap used too. I just got one for $300 the other day. Throw some JJs in there and you're good to go. Try to avoid the one with the green PCB though, I've heard they're pretty noisy due to a problem with the reverb circuit. This was fixed with the newer, cream colored board ones.
