ok, i heard somewhere that bands sound best when the 2 amps complement each other. So hear is the delema.

i have a 1,300 orange amp

but the other guitarist cant spend more then 500 dollars, on his amp.

we play classic rock (heavily gun's n' roses/aerosmith inspired)

my setup:

Orange rocker 30/112
clyde mcCoy wah
Modded Boss DS-1
Agile 3500 With seymour duncans


so here is what i was thinking he could get, tell me if you have any other better options,

a peavey Classic 30/112- so we have the same wattage.
and we put a Distortion and a wah infront of it infront of it for some distortion.

the other guitarist plays a strat BTW

peavey classic 30...i have one and it could do aerosmith really well, its a tad short on the gain at low volumes for a slash like sound...i was just playing mine downstairs and doing quite the convincing clapton

I expect they'll go together well.

How do you like your Orange Rocker 30? I'm thinking of getting one.

- Squier Standard Strat
- Roland Cube 60
- Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde
- Boss OD-3
- Behringer EQ700

Hehe me and my other band guitarist have the same problem, although its slightly more extreme.

My Setup:

Marshall DSl 401
Gibson LP Studio (soon with EMG's)
Boss Metal Zone MT-2 (sometimes)

His Setup:

Yamaha RGX 12IZ (http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=69270)
Marshall MG10CD
Digitech RP100

So... slight problem there lol.

As for your question, either the Peavey Classic as suggested or a Vox AC30?

its tru, in a band situation it soduns best when the amps compliment eachotehr. For me, i have an MG15 running thru a 4x12, and he has sum 75 watt randall, and by tehmselves, neither sound great (especially mine lol) but when playing together soudns quite good actually

The Classic would blend well with the Orange.
You could also get him to look at some used Vox AC30's.

Get an overdrive like an SD-1 or a ts808. For a Classic 30, it'll be better than a distortion, IMO.
These go to eleven...

Yay Im not alone
My setup
Washburn custom series(with bkps)
5150 voodoo modded
His setup
Ibanez Rg

It makes my amp sound so crappy
EDIT: Too answer your question I
would have to go with the Peavey
and get a Ts-808

Traynor Blue?


my next suggestion, although i would say the peavey becuase well i love it, and its a bit cheaper so he could get an od perhaps to push it a bit...the classic also gives a bit different gain character than a traynor, i was looking extensively at both and chose the peavey, it has a more vintage fender vibe, whereas the traynor has a more marshally EL34 sound

#11
so if the rocker 30 has a more marshall esq- sound would i want to get a traynor?
#12
i think they're saying that the peavey would be a good compliment to the orange, because the orange already has the "brittish" tone, and the peavey would compliment it well with a more fenderish vibe
#14
now for bass, does the Bass/ bass amp have to complement the guitars, because our bass is just getting a fender rumble 60
