I don't know if it will be good with your line 6 gear, but with an eq pedal it can do metal really well, especially thrash.

What is so "awful" about that sound? Care to explain? Because you're not helping anyone, just confusing. To me, it sounded just like the kind of metal tone you use to hear when you hear a metal song somewhere and I heard nothing wrong with it.

^I thought it was lacking high end bite that you can get from some of the "good metal amps" but I wouldn't call it awful. All and all the tone was very average and bland. I guess that could have been due to recording and video compression too.

I think the TT is a good amp for somebody that does a little bit of everything but sticks mostly to classic rock. The crunch and mild distortion on the amp are great while It's reasonable metal and clean tones are nothing write home about.

Yes, yes it can.

I tried the combo at the shop, using my Strat with a LOW (Duncan TBAPH) output bucker at the bridge, an MI Audio Blues Pro on the ground and into the amp.

I set the amp for a quite crunchy tone from the start, then I could get a nice clean sound using just the Strat, and when back to full volume and hitting the Blues Pro I got a SHITLOAD of gain. And I mean, A LOT of gain. And this means, A LOT of gain. Well you get what I mean.

Without the boost it also had enough gain for most metal, but it wouldn't clean up as well nor sound as tight.

for a classic rock voiced amp, it can put out passable metal tones.

There are in most cases - better amps for the money, if you're playing death metal.

Often times the gain associated with metal is derived soley from the preamp, and with the TT you'll be driving the powertubes in any sort of band situation. Powertube overdrive is more commonly associated with the classic rock sound.

For metal you'll probably do better to get an amp with more headroom.

Also - with a good amp, voiced to your genre - you won't need the uber metal. If you plan to use the pod xt, you'll also probably want an effects loop (which the TT lacks if I'm not mistaken).

It's not that bad at all, I think it would be much better if it were well recorded.

^that is all down to his tonebone pedal. I have a tonebone classic myself and know from 1st hand experience that the tones that the tone that guy is getting doesn't need a good tube amp, it can be gotten with any reasonable solid state and the tonebone classic.

IMO, the Tiny Terror's best metal tone is with the gain on 2 o'clock and a 800Hz boost, which gives a tight thrash tone, with ample gain. Probably not good for modern death metal though, and you will really need a bassist in a band situation to make up for the lack of very low bass.

but he's got a point. If you're looking for a metal tone, stay clear away from the tiny terror.

He clearly states in the description that he uses the amp with an MXR boost pedal for the first video. The second video I'm not sure about, but he shows the amp and then a tubescreamer so I assumed that is what he used.

Man a Orange Amp is like the holy grail of cool Im saving up for a tiny terror head to go with my 5150 head the orange for cleans of course but still an Orange TT's can kick out some sweet Metal tones

of course your going to need an OD metal on it a tubescreamer can do the job boss makes a few OD petals a metal muff is supposed to be really good.

the "^" means I was talking about the post directly above mine. In that post he linked to a video that showed a tonbone radial classic. I know from from personal experience that his tone was down the the tonebone. The original video was the one I said was sub par in terms of metal tone.

However, he also shows the tiny terrors with the gain turned right up, therefore most of the tone comes from the tiny terrors.

No, the tone is shaped by the pedal before it ever gets to the amp. The amp just makes it louder. I like the TT, don't get me wrong, but the "metal tone" that guy was getting was his tonebone and not his amp. Power amp distortion sounds nothing like preamp distortion and what you were hearing in the last clip was preamp distortion caused by a 12ax7 valve.

But how many? the tiny terror's two 12ax7's do sound like that last video.

Anyway i'm sure at least some of that last video was all amp, and some was mostly tonebone.

Yes and no... The distortion in the second video was all pedal while the overall "tone" was all amp. The 1st video was more amp in terms of distortion and was a much better representation of what the amp can do.

Again, I like the TT and I think it's a very good amp, just not all the good for metal. That said, the best classic rock amps (including the ones I build myself) don't do metal very well. It's just one of those things.

there is no way in hell a Tiny Terror (much less a "Tinny" Terror) could pull off death metal.

I wouldn't say its for Death Metal, but you can get nice Heavy Metal tone.

Although, they're so expensive in Australia, im getting a Buger 333XL combo, for a lesser price.

thank you for proving my point.

he's using a boost pedal, and all the bass from his tone is coming from the compression of the video.
