im going to buy a new valve amp, ive tried out the fender hot rod deluxe and it was amazing. i mainly play metal but i want a good clean sound. ive also heard the peavey classic 30 is very good amp and likewise for the orange tiny terror although i havent tried the orange tt or the peavey classic 30. will the tiny terror be loud enough for gigs? are there any other valve amps in that price range?
Ibanez RG570 w/Dimebucker , Seymour Duncan 59

I say Classic 30 if you like cleans

But...

If you're in America I would recommend a Crate Palomino V32 and EHX Metal Muff over either of those.



EDIT: Damn, you aren't

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

Hot Rod Delux is a nice amp. Not exactly suitable for metal, although I've gotten decent metal sounds out of Fender amps before with an EQ pedal and a Dist pedal. If you play 90% metal, then you should pass on this.

Despite the love a lot of people have for Orange amps, I don't like them. Tiny Terrors do live up to their name though. I can't say you'd get a good clean out of them at gig volume though.

Peavey 30 is a great amp, nice cleans, nice crunch, not exactly metal though either. Might be a little better looking at a Classic 50 if you want good cleans at gig volume though.

Honestly none of those three are really suited for Metal though. Like someone else mentioned, have a look at Laney.

when you say you want a nice clean, you mean in addition to a nice metal distortion, right?

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.

Well I dunno if it's gonna be PRIMARILY your metal amp, but check out a Hot Rod Deluxe with a metal muff thrown infront of it.

Yes, Yes.

You are right about the cleans too. Unbeatable. Great over-drive channels too. Sexy reverb as well. What more could you want in an amp?
