Versatile amp and yet unique.

Ivo Zlatanov, 14.11.2017
I have to say that I'm using my second amp, the first arrived worked two days and stopped, so I had to returned to Thomann, communications and all their assistance were perfect!
When I received my second one the fun began:) Excellent amp! My main guitars are an American Special Telecaster / single coils/ and a Traditional Les Paul / 57' classic humbuckers / , the amp takes both of them perfectly, preserves and even emphasizes the specific tone of each of them. The amp takes effects very well in front and/or trough the loop, I prefer front though. When I practice in my home studio I use an attenuator to achieve reasonable sound levels, this thing is loud...The amp is very well built, and although there are not too many knobs , tone wise you can easy go from jazzy cleans to extreme power distorted sounds.

That oh so sweet orange sound...

Michael I. 487, 21.08.2013
So I've mainly gigged amp heads and 4x12 cabs over the past 15-20 years and maybe age is telling but I'm getting a tad tired of hauling those big pieces of equipment around. This resulted in researching quality valve combos that wouldn't leave me with a permanent stoop. I ended up picking the TH30C aka the Orange Thunder 30 Watt combo! This is such as versatile little amp with some very cool features. First thing is it can be configured to 30, 15 and even 7 watts which allows you to crank the tubes up at home with 7 watts (make sure wife is at other end of house) and also cut through nicely on the stage with a very loud 30 watts. It comes with a 12" celestion G12H speaker but also has multiple options for hooking up external cabinet units at 8 and 16 ohms. It has 2 channels, clean and dirty... the clean is very crisp and has a lovely bite to it as you roll the volume up using a humbucker guitar. When you get dirty on this amp, you get down right "Orange" dirty... This channel has 3 controls, typical volume and gain controls and then a third known as shape. It's this control that handles the mids of your tone, rolling back for that classic British rock sound whilst giving you a modern metal edge with scooped mids when dimed. Some people may see the lack of specific bass/mid and treble controls as a limitation but there has been little I can't achieve from a tone perspective when messing with the gain and shape controls on this amp. Conclusion, I play classic rock music and it does everything I need and it does it with that classic sought after orange tone... It should be noted that a switch pedal needs to be purchased separately if you need one.
