so I've already got what i consider to be the grandaddy of metal, my lovely 6505+ but, it usually stays at my bands studio. I want something with a nice all tube crunch to have at home, that is either nice for the price or portable.

so how does everybody feel about the Orange Tiny Terror? I hear great things about it and am willing to buy a boost pedal (tubescreamer) to really get a nice chunk out of it. Now mind you I don't just want a metal tone, because I do play alot of other stuff, but can it give a sexy heavy tone?

Also if anyone cared, I'm gonna buy a 1 x 12 or 2 x 12 cab to go with whatever I buy (probally avatar)

I tried it about a month ago and yeah it's brilliant, the crunch is awesome and I found that you don't necessarily NEED an OD/booster for it to do metal, just do the Marshall trick and pin everything (bar volume) to 10 and it can actually do it on it's own - a boost/OD would make it better of course though.

awesome, I'm gonna try one on Saturday so I'll have to see. Any other suggestions besides the Tiny Terror? or does this seem to be the ticket?

IMO, mate. The 6505+ is overrated, but each to his own, right?
I suggest a Peavey valveking combo amp for little home practice stuff, but thats just me.
Quite.

Nice one.
Yeah it's also very versatile, turn stuff down and it could get blues nicely with a little bit of dirt (I hate sparkly clean cleans without a light touch of OD).
I would personally go with a 1x12 with a V30 in it - I played it through the 1x12 Orange cab and it sounded grrreat.
I'm not sure about other suggestions unless you were to try for a Blackheart or something and boost/OD it to hell, but I would personally still stick with the TT.

I dunno, I tried the valveking, and it wasn't to my liking...it sounded kinda thin to me. But then again people say the 6505 is thin sounding, whereas I find it HUGE with the right eq

Put the bass/resonance up and man it sounds big.

It won't compete with the big sounds of a half stack of course but i can't see how it sounds thin, you know?

Considered a Laney combo or a Mesa combo?
Quite.

If I would buy a new practice amp it would be a TT stack or combo.

Tiny Terror is fantastic for low volume hard/rock metal.
Honestly I don't see why I need to sell mine, it's tiny with the 1x12 and brilliant.

And a good OD does help get a better sound for metal.
