Hey im really wanting an all tube amp to upgrade from my solid state marshall. I'm mostly just practicing in my bed room and jaming with my band. I play mostly classic rock like GnR, Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC etc. and little bit of punk (Nirvana, Sum 41) Would the Tiny Terror and the matching 1x12 cab be a good choice for me? Im kinda worried if it will be loud enough for jamming with my band.
Also would this be able to pull of a metal sound with a good overdrive/distortion pedal?

Thanks in advance for your help

15W probably won't be able to keep up if you have a loud drummer in the mix.

What's your budget?

BS.

It'll keep up fine, just don't expect cleans.

Yeah, but not a very loud one at gigging volumes. OD will be fine.

For cleans + OD, look into a 30w tube amp.

if you get a 212 cab or even a 412 or 410, you wont have a problem keeping up. my VJ is only 5 watts and it keeps up when cranked, but only cranked. the 15W will give you some more clean headroom. but agian, dont expect cleans too much. fortunately the crunch tone on the terror is GLORIOUS. and yes, put a metal muff or a shredmaster in front of it and get gaintarded!!!!

You obviously have never played one before pal. I can drown out my drummer with mine no matter how hard he plays.

Do any of you know how loud this thing actually is? It's more compared to like 30 or 40 watts of solid state, i mean it is LOUD you can play a 100-200 gig with it no problem.

Buddy, this is PLENTY loud and it can pull off a metal sound with a tubescreamer in front.

I will second the notion that the Tiny Terror is ridiculously loud for a 15 watt amp. It seems to be pushing a lot of mids which helps it cut through better than a lot of other amps.

The TT is a cool little amp, but it's not your best choice.

Your best choice is a Traynor YCV 50 Blue. Significantly more amp for less money, and perfectly voiced for the bands you like. Plus it's built in Canada!

Although I love Orange, and the TT is a great amp, it will probably struggle to have a decent clean tone at drumming levels, I will have to say +1 to Slat's suggestion of the Traynor.

I have a Tiny Terror. It is amazing. Cleans won't hold up very loud though, but the breakup is very smooth and musical, perfect for AC/DC. It can easily be heard over a drummer but it won't be clean. It packs quite some gain, more of which can be coaxed out with a overdrive pedal to pust the preamp tubes. If volume is an issue, get a large cabinet (2x12 or 4x12). Technically the volume won't be any "louder", but it will sound MUCH louder to the human ear. However, if you are looking for cleans at a high volume, the TT just won't cut it for you.
