Sorry for making another orange thread but i've never played the AD30 and i'm wondeing if it would suit me better than the R30...i want to get a good bluesy tone (SRV, Buddy Guy, Hendrix), and good classic rock tone (Zeppelin, Who, Thin Lizzy) and a good heavy tone (deep purple, sabbath, uriah heep)...Orange R30 or Orange AD30?

I've been watching some demos on youtube but they are all blues :/ so i don't know if it'll do some of the heavier bands i named

I've heard people say that the AD30 can do everything from clean all the way up to a JCM 800 type of tone. I've yet to play one, so I can't vouch for that, but it's what I've heard
Gear:
Gibson X-Plorer Studio Yellow
Orange Tiny Terror
Orange PPC-112 Cab (2 stacked - 1 open backed)
MXR Phase 90
Fulltone OCD

^Believe it or not the I found the Rocker to have superir cleans!

I'm gonna say the Rocker 30. Great blues amp, I play lots of the type of blues you play and for what classic rock and hard rock tones you want, it's perfect.

doesnt the guy from stonesour play oranges? listen to his stuff


Yes he does play a completly different model of Orange.

Anyway I think the AD30 is much better for the classic rock sound, but the Rocker 30 is probably better overall for what you are going for.
