Was looking into possibly getting one of these at some point. anybody have any experience with these? like what kind of territory can they get into gain wise?

British crunch from Hendrix into VH or AC/DC... yes. Need to boost it with a pedal to get really heavy metal stuff.

buy the dual. trust me. the fat channel is really nice to have. you can footswitch.

*if* you get the dual you will have enough gain for whatever you need especially with a boost. i have had it over three years at least and love it.

the tiny terror channel is the same and its nice and very versatile (don't worry about having only a single tone knob, it covers anything fine. its also cool to dime the volume and slowly go up on the gain, you can get the no MV effect and is more responsive.

does well at quieter volumes (referring to mine at 15w)

there really aren't any cleans and no effects loop. i use both channels for dirt, and don't really run pedals, however i really wish that it had an effects loop.

if you want to know anything else, let me know.

I didnt like the one i used. I felt really limited by just having a "tone" knob and couldnt really get a sound out of it that i liked

Another option might be to save up a bit more money and get the Orange OR15.

Same wattage as the TT but with better EQ and an FX loop, not to mention that lovely orange tolex. Think it is voiced differently too

The problem I had with the TT is that it doesn't really do cleans. I mean you can try and get it to clean up by backing off the gain or rolling volume down on guitar but it just isn't the same.

The OR15 is much nicer but you'll pay for it too.

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.

thanks guys. clean channel isnt really something i care about too much. im looking into the others too. ive just been loving the orange amp sims on amplitube 3 and thinking maybe i should take the plunge and get a real orange amp.

i enjoyed the one i had, it was pretty limited though. not much power section headroom to keep the amp crisp enough for a truly desirable heavy distortion or pristine clean sounds but it did well enough most the time. it was great at dirty sounds, for gritty cleans to hard rock.

i loved how i got feedback on the unit. the tone knob never bothered me much and i used a number of OD/distortion/fuzz/boost pedals with it to add some versatility.

I personally don't care for effects loops on classic/hard rock amps. It takes more away from the sound and feel of the amp than you will be able to add with effects IMO.

That being said, I did like the OR15 very much when I tried it, though it was at a low volume . Seemed like it could get very loud for it's size though.

Re fx loop. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Tastes and needs change and you may suddenly decide you want an amp with an fx loop.

Tbh, I don't use mine but I'm glad it's there. I'm always put off by amps without them as I don't see them as particularly future proof

a fair number of amps have a hard-bypassable loop

No piece of gear is future-proof. You might not play the same things you did a year after you bought it. You may decide you want an amp with an fx loop but you could just as easily decide you want a brutal high-gain amp or an amp with shimmering cleans. "It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it" doesn't fully work with guitar gear.

I tried a Tiny Terror and couldn't get a clean sound I liked, the gain knob is all gain if you know what I mean. Currently got an OR15 and it's much easier to get a clean sound, not the best in the world but good enough.

So if there is nothing going through the loop, it is as if it weren't present at all?

yup.

my brigand has a switch that lets me bypass everything associated with the loop, takes everything associated with it right out of the chain.
