My friend had an Orange amp for a while and hated it. Beyond that, I'm no help. "Try before you buy" is the best tip anyone can give you about gear.

nah my friend has an orange crush 30watter and it really sucks. You wont be able to get a nice distorted tone outta it and its pretty damn quiet for 30watts.

Orange Crushes are ok for solid states, but Orange's valve amps are great.

Yeah, the Crush range are all solid state. I love my Crush 10!

But the main thing is, yes, they are LOUD.

You have to try before you buy; they aren't everyone's cup of tea.

Ive heard orange amps have the fender clean with the marshall distortion, but I never believe what people tell me.

Try to find the valve amps. The Solid state ones are only decent. ALWAYS try before you buy and ask if there is a way to upgrade the tubes.

Basically, if it doesn't say "Orange Crush" then it's all-Valve.

Orange aren't, say, Line6. They don't make amps that try to sound like other amps.

If you like Orange tone, then buy an Orange. If not, then don't.

If you're wanting an amp in the price range of an Orange Crush, then look at some Vox Valvetronixes.

they have an ok clean but crappy distortion and are quiet.. if your looking for heavy distortion id say try out a spider 2. They are pretty loud too but loads of people claim they sound really cheap, but they are better than the crush series in my opinion.

Id definately recommend a Vox, specifically the AD50VT. The distortion varies depending on the "amp" style you use, but the choises you get are amazing. Its not all-tube amp, but its pretty damn close. I do not, however, recommend the Spider II. Line 6 has a reputation of sounding like sh!t, and seeing as i love both RHCP and The strokes, I'd assume we have similar tastes. But yeah, definately try before you buy.

^ +1 to the vox AD.

I second Laneys. They have a very nice distortion and better than average cleans. Look at the L-Series Combos, perhaps.

EDIT: Maybe try the TT50 combo or the VC30 combo...?
