a local guitar store near me is selling 2 orange crush amps one 10r and one 15r. me and my friend tried both and the gain on the 10 was easy to use, sounded great and the amp itself worked very well. when we tried the 15 however we could not get the gain to work well but the amp sounded about the same. the prices for both are good but im wondering which would b better to buy.
You'd be better off getting a cheaper Solid State amp, save some money for a tube amp later. Roland Cubes do gain better which is what you seem to be after...

Oranges are actually a revolution though - they're the next step from Rectos IMO.
The crush is an okay SS amp, but considering you'll be spending more dosh than its worth, go with a cheaper SS/modeller, then save your bucks for an amp that has better tone.
