    I have the OD202 and by itself, it can do older metal, but with an eq in the loop and a boost, it can get more modern. The reverb I do like because it feels not that invasive, the EQ on it gives you quite a bit of control. I am in love with the cleans and the gain is very usable and that's not even talking about the fact that you get three voicings on the amp. Just when you thought the amp couldn't get any better, it makes an amazing pedal platform. I'm not trading this little guy for anything.

    I've had my Orange Rockerverb 50 Mk1 (with 6V6s) since 2006, so I think it's going to stay around. Probably will keep the Mesa MkV 25 I've had for 6 years now.

    Just picked up one myself. Quite impressed by it. Although with so many texture options on the Lead/ Clean channel i never touch either crunch channels. Not that that's a bad thing!

    Rivera K-Tre, Orange Rockerverb 50 mki, Mesa Tremoverb and the Kruse modded Mesa Stiletto.

    They all have the right 'thing' going on for me.

    I’ve gone through around 20 amps the past 2 years and have extensively compared them against each other when I had them.

    The verdict after buying and selling amps for a while is, I will never ever sell my mesa Rev F dual recto rackmount serial #1377 or my Fryette Deliverance 120 v. 1 w/ Fryette FX loop.

    A Deliverance is the only amp that I need.

    Oddly enough I settled for 2 years with PRS MT15. Smallish, light, stupid loud and cheap. The gain structure is perfect for me. Like a boosted blend of recto with ubershall with weird eq pots freqencies. With the eq pedal in the loop I can get everywhere I want. Great little amp.
    Sold my Mesa Single Rec, Dark Terror and plan on selling Katana, maybe Vox ac10… but MT15 is keeper for now.

    It's an obvious reply really, but having owned so many amps over the years the one I always go back to is the 5150. I've owned both a Peavey 5150, 6505, 5150 III... all amazing. Sadly I've moved around a lot over the years and ended up selling them all. At one point I had some extra money to spend so I bought a Mesa Mark V, I was initially blown away by it but after a few shows and recordings with it, as awesome as it is, it's just too clean for my taste. I recently bought another 6505, and instantly got the feeling of "that's what I've been missing" when I hit that sweet spot with the resonance control and thick mids. Since then I've only used the Mark V for cleans and reamping the odd solo.

    Marshall Origin 50 head. So killer with an overdrive in front. Sweet glassy tone, rich in harmonics. It's the tone in my head.
