I'm planning on buying an amp for Christmas. My current "drive" 10 watt peace of crap isn't holding up lol.

So my budget is 400 AUD. I want a decent amp. I play lots of high fuzz alt rock, punk, heavy metal and dabble in classical 60s-70s style rock. I have a Tele HH.

I want something that's solid and the best in that range.
So far I've looked up the orange crush 35rt and the fender champion 40

Any suggestions are welcome as well as thoughts on the two amps I've listed above.
Thanks

I would suggest neither of those. For your budget maybe something from the Peavey VYPYR series? You would have to buy used but I am not sure of that market in Australia.


Any reason why you don't think I should get one of those? Are they bad amps?

The Orange 35RT is a great amp and because it has an effects loop you could get a good used multi effects unit to play any of the style of music you can't dial in on the Orange.

How about a fender mustang II v2?
Actually that may be a good choice for your budget. If I am correct it is a bit more versatile of a modeling amp than the Champion 40. Listen to some demos and see which one fits you best?

Valve king? They aren't the BEST thing out there, but it is cheap and is pretty flexible.

I'm split between a. Orange crush 35rt or b. Fender mustang ii v2

The main features I'll be using is reverb (spring included) and distortion/OD.

I'm so totally new to this, so sorry if I dont make sense with something

Okay

So I've narrowed it down to two that I liked while trying them out in store.
Fender mustang II v2 or vox vt40x

The box is slightly more expensive. Which would you all recommend?
