Not meant to be a VS thread, I'm just wondering.

I really like Marshall tone I hear on albums, and the tone my teacher gets out of them, but I've only seen ONE youtube video where anyone gets what I'd consider good tone out of a Marshall. I've seen plenty of Orange demo's with great tone.

I've heard orange beats marshall at having marshall tone, can anyone show me a video with good marshall tone? I'm starting to lean towards an Orange amp, even though I think they're really ugly.

Try them out and see if you can get a good tone out of either.

"Marshall tone" generally refers to the sound of a cranked JCM-800 or Plexi, and you'll get far closer to that sound with an Orange amp than with any modern Marshall.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

no
I have an orange, and they are NOT the master of the cleans. Fender = master of cleans.
Orange is incredible, but don't buy an orange amp for its cleans. But it for it's awesome overdrive and crunchy tone.
Overall, I think THE BEST marshall amp will be better than THE BEST orange amp, but there will be a difference of about $30000. Therefore, for the price, orange will drown marshall in a sea of pwnage.

I guess I'm asking if it's worth paying AT LEAST 500$ more for just the orange head, when I can get a JCM-800 combo for 600-800$
