Savage is one of the best Engl's. I don't know about the 60W version, but I have no doubts is as good as it's big brother.

ESP M-II -> Randall Diavlo 100 -> Mesa Rectifier 4x12 and 2x12.

I dunno - should you? haha

It's a good amp but it wasn't for me, but I didn't play the 60watt. Also I wouldn't base it off of Ola's videos - a lot of them have post processing and seem to make things sound bigger and more polished then they actually are. Can you buy it with a return policey? That way worst case scenario you are out just shipping, sometimes even that is covered depending on where you buy it from.

thanks for the answers guys
I'm pretty sure I would be able to sell it for more in the UK, because it's super rare over here
right now i have an orange TH30 boosted with a bad monkey. i was looking for an improvement, something tighter and more aggressive so I'm pretty sure it fits the bill.
would you guys think that it would be an improvement to a boosted orange TH30?

Definitely - the Savage is a fine amp. For a decent price go for it, you know what it sounds like after all. Having said that, Ola Englund makes all amps sound really processed and polished. I can guarantee it will sound much more raw and big when you play it.

It will be an improvement if you prefer its tone to the Orange. It is much tighter and aggressive.
