I've been pondering birthday money (15 today) and I've been wanting a tube amp forever, and I was thinking about getting a smaller one, is this more of a quiet amp or can it really blow people's heads off?

Would a Tubescreamer be a good addition to the amp?

5W tube will still be very loud

AD5 + TS would be great but fot the money theres so much better

Thanks, yeah I was guessing it'd still be loud as hell.


And about these better options, they are...

Budget wise I really could only stretch to about £300
I'll play mainly Alternative Rock, a fair bit of Psychadelic rock and a dollop of Classic Rock.
I should be gigging relatively soon, but somewhere I can mic up.

I was considering one, but I've ALWAYS wanted an Orange, i'm in love with the tone. I'm not really a 40 amp knob person. I'd rather have 1 knob, a few pedals and my guitar than an over-complicated amp, a billion pedals and a guitar.

orange is a very british tone, so's the laney, the VC is a pretty damn good substitution.

orange are so overpriced, all you'd get is an AD5 or a TT head on its own.

and a 5 watt combo isnt up to gigs IMO, 15 minnimum

i get a very british tone from my VC15, and you'd have cash left for an OD

Yes, but I love the simplicity of some Orange amps. And I can mic up to a very very high standard of PA System (Church). I used a Laney for a gig once, the tone was nice, but not anything special. I never turned it past 2 anyways, what's the need in volume if you don't use it.

And anyways, a Laney VC15 would only be about 1/6th louder than the AD5. 50 watts tube would be twice the volume.

loudness is dodgy

let me put it like this:

if you get the orange, you wont be able to gig without a PA

But won't there already be a PA for vocals?

OH!

I will I think there may be a shop opening almost near me that is going to stock Orange, give him a try, if not, I'll most definatley be getting a Laney VC30.

My son has gotten away with gigging with a 15W amp, but I really wouldn't suggest anything smaller than 30W - especially if you have a need for cleans.

I've got the Laney Lionheart L5-112. It's pretty damn loud for a 5W amp, and I can keep up with a (girl ) drummer with it in the studio. But with another guitar or keys, I'd be drowned out. No way I could get any cleans out of it at all in that situation and still hear myself.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.
