I'm looking at buying an Orange Tiny Terror soon, and I want to get a decent 2x12 cabinet for it. I'm looking to get pretty cheap, as I want to start playing it soon and don't have a large budget. I don't know much about cabinets but I think I want a closed-back one, my mind could change though. I'm looking to play a lot of metal (I know the tiny terror is NOT a metal amp, but I love the sound of a British amp cranked with an OD over the super saturated sound of a Mesa), hard rock, blues etc.

My budget including amp is around $700, but seeing as cabinets are expensive, I can be a little flexible.

Thanks for all the help!

usually people will suggest avatar, but its almost becoming a bandwagon. Ive never tried one, bu go search avatar cabs.

Also, you can select speakers, style, and color.

I would stay away from the marshall 212..especailly the 1936. Terrible sounding.

an orange ppc 2x12 would be a good match for the tt. that's about $550.
avatar makes an orange 2x12 clone, i think that's somewhere around $350.

As I said, I know very little about cabinets, but I'm looking for a cab with some pretty good low-end, something a little more modern sounding. I don't know what speakers I want, as I don't know much about them; and color isn't an issue for me. Hell, it can be neon pink for all I care, I'll just tell everyone I'm trying to be unique.

Don't get me wrong though, if possible I would...totally, not get a pink cabinet.

Check out http://www.avatarspeakers.com/. I think most everyone around here would agree they're the best place to go for decent quality, affordable cabs.

Thanks, and what speakers would anyone recommend for that?

Also, how loud can a little 15 watt tube go?

for a lot of metal, you could go with 2 v30's, a v30 + classic lead 80, or maybe 2 classic lead 80's.

and 15watts from a tube amp can be pretty loud. i'd say it's the bare minimum for being heard in a full band setting... which is loud if you don't have a band.

I was considering a Bugera 333XL 212 at one point so it will DEFINITELY be a better practice amp than that 120 watt monster. Then again, the Bugera is not meant to be cranked, and the orange is.

I digress, I will be using this for some band work, but might need it for some decently sized gigs.

at any decently sized gig, the people there will mic you up, so you'll be fine for that.

at practice you might be struggling to be heard if you're playing a lot of loud metal though.

We practice in a very tiny room so that wont be a problem.

Avatar are nice, but having played them and my Lopoline now. The Lopo destroys it imo.

Mine is front loaded, baltic berch and has a removable grille, which is VERY handy for recording, I got it when they were moving for 20% off, with Eminence Texas heats, it cost me less than $300 shipped. Very sturdy cabs and very cleanly built, good communication and customer support and quick shipping/build time.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
