omg!!!! i think im in heavenlike the title says, omg!! I first purchased a marshall jvm 205 head, & returned it, I just couldn't get the sound I was after. too many knobs to fool with & sounded too thin. so I returned it . I then spoke to my sales engineer Christopher geissler & we discussed another possibility , which was the orange th-100. I explained what sound I was looking for & I took his advice & purchased the th-100. well I just received the amp today, plugged it in , & I was in heaven. Christopher must have read my mind . he surely hit a home run with this amp. iv'e been playing guitar for 30yrs+ & have owned everything , mesa boogie, marshall, fender, hi-watt, randell, etc: & honestly , never even thought about a orange, (other than eating) until chris mentioned it. he sure knows his business, & is a great guy. very helpful, & a total gentleman. he wasn't pushy in any way , just explained all the features & let me make my own decision. I want to tell you friends, this amp is a KEEPER . I love it . I build custom guitars for a living (riedell guitars) & I tried everything from single coil s to the most potent humbucking guitars through this amp. good god !! fantastic. loud isn't the word , even at half power, & the clean channel is awesome. ac/dc what ever you throw at it , it comes through. another thing is , dealing with sweetwater is a SWEET experience. I wouldn't go anywhere else after this experience. & I cant say enough about Christopher G. super nice guy. well that is pretty much it . now it's time for an orange.

The best sounding amp hands down.I have been playing for over 35 years and know when an amp has a good natural tone just by itself. I can only say that I was really blown away by the incredible sound of this amp. I had read all the stellar reviews, but it was not until i tried one that I could not believe how incredible it sounded. The Clean channel is crystaline clean !! Then, on the dirty channel you can get all of those awesome Orange british tones from the 60's, 70's, and up to full blown metal. I did add an MXR EQ in the effects loop, and it is a bit of overkill. The Made in China did not worry me since i've had a Tiny Terror for years and it has never had the slightest problem. BUT, make no mistake this amp is another totatally dfferent best. You can also go from 100w to 70w to 50w and 35w. For the price it has no match. Thank god I tried it and ordered it from Sweetwater.

Great classic and modern tones.Pros:
Smoking OD channel that's incredibly versatile. As a rock and blues player, the sweep knob functions perfectly for classic rock and blues tones all the way to modern hard rock and metal tones. The EFX loop was a must, and this has one. Multiple output setting makes this a great amp for just about any required stage volume. A pretty good price for these types of tones.
The clean channel isn't that inspiring.

Not the best for OrangeIf you're looking to play exclusively high distortion metal this amp might be for you. If you want a better sounding amp that's more affordable go for the Dual Terror. If you have the money, then go for the rockerverb.
