    Ok, I've been wanting to pull the trigger on a lunchbox amp forever but any time I get close I always want to get just a little bit better and end up wanting an Engl Ironball and an expensive 2x12.

    I just need to pull the trigger and pick a cheap one good for metal that I can plug headphones into so that I don't need to worry about the cab right now (I have a 6 month old so headphones are the only option right now anyway)

    I'm between an Orange Micro Dark and the Peavey Pirhana.

    Thoughts? Tell me what to do!!!

    Love all types of metal but I lean progressive in my tastes if it makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    I feel like the Pirhana would be better for your taste. Based on a tighter and more aggressive sounding amp.

    Or if you can find one, a Joyo ZoMBie. Based on a Recto.

    If I was shopping for a lunchbox amp I’d probably get this one.
