Hey guys been offered a TH30 combo for my Engl Fireball, is this worth it? Just curious as I've never heard a TH30 before and I'm not sure.

60W Fireball I assume? It might match up price wise, but altogether it depends on what's the main tone you use.


That's the one, I'm not sure it would do the metal that I play very well (Speed/Power along the same lines as Helloween, Gamma Ray, Stormwarrior, Hammerfall and Freedom Call)

I mean, it would free up some space though...

I wouldn't do it.
The orange is more british-voiced, sloppier and stuff.
Plus I once ran a funny test at a music store.

I had there a Victory 4x12 with a Victory V100, an ENGL Powerball 2 and an Orange Rockerverb 50mkII.
I tried one after the other, clean channel, flat EQ.
Maaaan the cleans on the orange sucked shit through 12" bricks.
Dunnow if it's the same with the Fireball and the TH30, but if they come even close to what I heard, by any means keep the ENGL.

^You must've been doing something wrong, then. The Rockerverbs have great cleans.

Just outa curiosity, what's the Victory like? What's the closest amp it's voiced to?

If you're looking to do some trading, the Orange is a better regarded amp than the 60W Fireball and would be easier to trade for something else. Just a thought.

Didn't really try that a lot.
What I remember is that the cleans were aaaaamazing, to kill for, but I don't really know what to compare it to - some warmer and punchier ENGL.
Yeah, some warmer and more natural ENGL kinda sound.
The pushed clean channel sounded a bit weak for my tastes, bit sloppy, and the distorted channel sounded something between a higher gain JCM800 and the rockerverb's.
And the knobs were pretty damn uncomfortable

That's a good point, but in terms of couriering and stuff I wouldn't feel safe posting for a trade, plus it costs money I don't really have at the moment.
