    I've just bought myself a Tiny Terror and the matching cab, can anyone recommend a valve to swap for the stock one, I don't have much knowledge on valves, I don't want to spend a fortune but just something to maybe warm it up a bit?

    Teles and Oranges go together well. Here's a pic of me form a few years ago with my RV50.

    I'm not sure what happened to my photo in the post above, but here is my CR60C in my practice room.

    And onstage for its first gig last weekend!

    I played a CR60C twice now and it's spoken to me. Slowly falling in love. I haven't cranked one yet - how does the amp respond at higher volumes?

    Took my Tiny Terror out and jammed for the first time. I've used it at home at low volume which is fine but I finally had the opportunity to let the beast loose. All I can say is wow. I bought this thing on an impulse. Then bought a 1x10 cab and loaded it with a Red Fang. That thing barked with authority. It is small but surprisingly powerful. All I had was guitar and amp. Roll back the volume to clean it up some. It didn't get real clean but it was usable and bluesy. Then crank it up, total fun! Do most Orange amps sound similar, with that aggressive mid range, or are they all their own thing?

    It sounds great cranked with plenty of gain to go around. Orange did quite an impressive job with the Crush Pro series.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this.
    my first gig with it was so much better sounding than in the bedroom due to volume!
    The clean channel is quite impressive, IMO.

    Thanks guys!

    The clean channel is the side that sold me. I expected the dirt to be fantastic (and it is), but the clean tone was easy to dial in on any guitar.

    Crush 35RT Owner here... I've always wanted one of those Orange amps.. finally bought the 35RT couldn't be happier..
    The dirt side is interesting in the fact you can run it as a second clean channel. It has that much versatility
    Dirt is more smooth than crunch or maybe it's the setting I have it on but you won't be playing Lonely Boy by the Black Keys...
    Oh yea it's a loud 35 watt amp...real loud!

    It is a Keeper for sure...

    I traded my 65 deluxe reverb ri for an orange OR15H and a PPC112 cab. In the group I'm in I was never able to really crank the deluxe enough to get the tubes to distort and depended on effects for a little dirt. I played a show new years eve with the orange and it performed beautifully with lots of delicious sounding tube distortion. I'm considering getting another PPC112 and loading it with a Celestion blue, I think it would go nicely together with the vintage 30. Has anyone tried this combination, and if so, is there any problem with the alnico speaker with the bell fitting in a PPC112 cabinet?

    Just purchased a minty 2014 Tiny Terror combo yesterday. Has Mullard tubes in it. Anyone ever swapped the stock tubes for these? I'd like to know if I'm missing anything from this swap? Also looking forward to getting another cab for a Vintage 30 and running it with the internal speaker (is this possible?).

    I have a Tiny Terror and a Micro Terror.
    Count me in!

    For now. My Plexi clone makes them expendable.

    RV50 here!

    Good one, even if I am still (after 10 years or so) studying how it could sound best with my guitars!

    That was the comment i was waiting for. I own already the MT and it sounded awsome, the only downfall is the head phone jack(direct recording) and there's no effect loop on the MT.
