Competition in this category has been fierce, with Blackstar's HT Venue series, Fender's redesigned Hot Rod amps and Vox's AC30C2 all proving that the gigging guitarist has never had it so good in terms of the availability of great-sounding, affordable backline.
Pipping its rivals to the post in this category is the fantastic new Orange TH30 1x12 combo. Reassuringly chunky yet not backbreaking, this little beast can be switched between seven, 15 and 30 watts to suit your needs. The Total Guitar and Guitarist reviews could scarcely have been more complimentary, and you can always count on Orange's bulletproof reliability.
