I'm planning on getting a classic players 50s strat. My friend has a strat with vintage noiseless pickups in it and also has the Hot Rod Deluxe. The problem is that the Hot Rod doesn't have enough gain/is too bright. The pick ups sound just waaay too thin. I'm assuming that I the 50s strat will sound similar. I tried the 50s strat with a VintageModern half stack and it had enough gain to get a chunky overdriven rhythm sound. Will the Tiny Terror have enough gain to work for me?

They have a high gained crunch, I don't think you'll get metal tones though, maybe some EARLY metallica sounds, like Seek & Destroy, but Nothing like Killswitch engage sorta sounds, without a pedal, atleast.

they get to a nice 80's hard rock/metal gain, your ts-9 will certainly get you there

So you think I'll get those tones with the Tiny Terror and the 50s strat? I have a TS-9 that I had modded for more gain so I think maybe I will have enough.

To me, wolfmother sounds very crunchy, not so much thick. Sometimes people mismatch the terms, and set their amps very bass heavy instead of mid-heavy. That bass generally is coming from the bassist, and so bass-heavy guitar sounds get very, lost in the mix.

That being said, i think your LP through the TT alone (cranked) will give you a very nice AC/DC,zeppelin,wolfmother tone.

andrew stockdale uses orange amps, so I assume the tiny terror will get you that crunch, if not, throw in a big muff or a different fuzz pedal

well with the strat and hot rod its very very very thin. piercing and overly bright it also seems to be lacking a lot of gain.

well how thick are his strings? maybe a higher gauge will take away from that thinness.

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.

+1 for wolfmother, if you listen to woman you will hear AS's tone is fuzzy so a Fuzzpedal for Wolf mother, but for classic rock in general the TT should be able to do it alone. and with your Tube screamer you could pretty much do anything.

Wolfmother isn't a problem for the TT. It's well within it's range.

You'll definately get Wolfmotherish tones from the TT, Stockdale uses Oranges.

sweeeet, well I was thinking about it and it might be worth the extra 300 if i just get a rocker 30 combo. Cause if I get the TT its gonna be 500 for that and then another 300 for the cab but if I just get a rocker combo it will be $1100.

Yeah but if you buy TT+cab you can use the cab later on with other heads, but the combo is stuck to one amp

I do believe you can unplug the "head" part of the combo pretty easilly and use it as just a cab.

A bit off topic but I keep thinking people are referring to the Laney TT, instead of the Orange Tiny Terror. This inappropriate abbreviation must stop! It's time we nip this problem in the bud before the situation gets out of hand!

Yeh go for the rocker 30 if you think it does your tone, its loud enough to gig, tone in abundance, easily manage wolfmother and many other rock, rearing on edge towards hard rock. And that isnt even counting being boosted with a ts-9 LET ALONE a modded ts-9.

And the classic players is a superb strat, and if you still think the tone is not thick enough, you could change the pups for something higher output (the cp50's pups are pretty low output as far as I know)

i love the rocker 30...i just hate how there is no eq for the clean/natural channel :/
