The Tiny Terrors are really nice amps. If it's what you want (maybe take a trip to a store and try one out?), I'd say go for it.

Definitely try the Tiny Terror in a store out before you buy it.
Going from a Vypyr to a TT is a big change. The TT is one of the most puristic amps.

As you're in Brighton, get yourself down to GAK. But don't take more than a fiver with you, it could be fatal!!!!!

ive played a dual terror before and i loved it i just dont think i can afford one so i need some alternatives

You should really try a H&K Tubemeister 18. About the same price range, but personally I really prefer the H&K lead channel to the Duel Terror's.

I always use mine with an orange cab, great combo.

I, and many others, have been there, and done that. Do not stopgap. Save up for what you want. Seriously. You will waste a huge amount of time and money stopgapping.

Big Tiny Terror fan here, but it is kind of a one trick deal. Try it out, and if the sound floats your boat, you'll love it. I considered some smaller fender combos and the vox night train when I got my TT, but again they're all just different flavours of amp, plus the fenders tend to be combos.

Wait, you're in Brighton? GAK is your friend.
Dude, where's my band?

jet cities are pretty cheap. won't sound the same as a tiny terror, but as a good-sounding, cheaper alternative, would be worth considering. thomann has them cheap, and jet city has set up its own UK online store with prices similar to thomann on the heads.

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.

Tiny Terror all the way, I picked myself up a Dark Terror after playing in a store for about 30minutes, amazing sounding amplifier, with the gain just past 12 o clock it sounds amazing, and it cleans up really nicely with the volume rolled down on guitar and some lighter picking.

Really really impressed with it,

Definitely go and jam on it!!1

Yeah, I didn't know you guys had reasonable prices for Jet City products in the UK. Nice. I've played a few JCs & the TT, & they both sound good in their own ways. The TT doesn't clean up as well if you roll off the guitar volume-it seems to retain that Orange "fizziness" to some degree (but, as stated above, can be compensated for somewhat by lighter touch). The JC has a bit better articulation that holds even as you roll down the guitar volume, but that being said, the overall feel of the TT is a bit more lively. Myself, I'd probably choose the TT, because I seldom use cleans, & I love the lively, crisp, responsive feel of the TT. I will one day buy a TT just for fun.

^ yeah jet cities are one of the few things we get decent deals on here in europe pretty different style of amp than the TT, admittedly.

I wouldn't bother with a tt. watts i ha ve the dual and to be honest the second channel is so much better especially getting a different tones.you also have another footswitchable channel. 30 watts is nice, but i use it at 15watts.

My room mate had a TT for quite a while Loved playing through it. The TT is kind of a one-trick pony, but what it does, it does very well.

Since the Jet City-Tiny Terror discussion is well underway, its worth noting that the JC is a brighter amp to my ears than the TT. The JCA20 is my main amp, and I love it! Seems that gain-wise the amps are fairly even as to the amount of gain on tap. One of the biggest differences is the 3-band EQ on the JC as opposed to the tone knob on the TT.

I'm a big fan of both amps. I'd love to have both amps and use them in the same rig, running both through 2x12's with the JC set a bit cleaner for the articulation and the TT a bit dirtier.

I said in an earlier post that rolling down works nicely to clean it up, was playing it last night with a guitar loaded with EMG60/81 pickups and I found it almost impossible to clean it up even with the gain around 10 o clock. It's just too high an output pickup. Just to give you a little more information.
My other axe loaded with BKP Warpigs, again still very high output does clean up real nice with the neck pick up though.
