Hey there…looking at one in a possible trade. I already love Orange crunch, but it’s the clean channel that appeals. My band is adding more and more songs requiring a sweet clean tone. Any impressions you can share are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I played the TH30 for a few years. Excellent amp! The shape control offers a variety of sounds from vintage crunch to modern scooped. The clean channel was very nice as well! Tube buffered FX loop and very well thought of EQ and as mentioned Shape control.
Versatile amp, great sounds, highly recommended! Sounds and behaves like an amp, that was designed by a musician for musicians.
Why did I sell it? It didn't look like a Plexi But in all seriousness, i just cannot bond with the visual appearance of these amps, although they make fantastic amps! If you have the chance, play an OR15 (that's a great Marshall Kerang sound in a small package) or OR50 (bigger and better) and the glorious Rockerverb!
How was the clean channel?I had one. I liked it but found it to be pretty tight, modern, and maybe a hair compressed compared to other Oranges. I like a little bit looser gain so sold it.
It was a great amp, though!
It was nice! It does get a little bit of grit when cranked up. That's the more "vintage" feeling channel. Also, I remember it being voiced nicely but not necessarily being "fat." I don't recall that low end bloom like a Fender or JTM. More like a clean Vox but not quite.How was the clean channel?
Nice! VOX cleans might just be my favourite. I like the sparkle and chime.It was nice! It does get a little bit of grit when cranked up. That's the more "vintage" feeling channel.

I don't know how loud you play. If really loud, the dirt on the clean channel may be an issue. But I will say these 30-watt Oranges (TH30, AD30) are LOUD for their ratings.
Oh, that sounds perfect! Thanks for the reply, I think I’m going for it. Just a matter of meeting the seller and making the trade….hopefully, TBCDefinitely not sterile or just an addition to a great overdrive channel. I'd say it's a little bit of Vox and a little bit of a Deluxe Reverb.
I do too. Not too worried about ‘modern’ sounding dirt, I can always get something I like for a Garage Rock sound with the addition of my Bad Monkey OD. However, the clean tone sounds great in vids (with headphones on) and the descriptions here concur.Good luck! I bet you like it.
