Your musical tastes are pretty much exactly mine. Of the three I would lean towards the OR50. Do you plan to use pedals? You might consider a Rocker 30 (not 32). Plenty loud enough and gain channel is basically the same circuit as the OR50. It covers all those bases for me, with some push from pedals in some places. For Tool I run the Diesel VH4 pedal on the Natural channel, which is a great pedal platform because its a single gain stage with no tone controls. You basically get what the pedal gives you. On its own the Natural channel sounds great cranked, very vintage sounding. The dirty channel I find best with a light crunch, very touch sensitive and responsive to the guitar. Really doesn’t need a presence control.

AD30TC is incredibly versatile. The two channels really nail what you're after. The AD140TC is WAY too loud - I know - I have both. The 30 watter is incredibly loud as well. OR50 is good but a twin channel amp is best for versatility....

I don't find the edge of breakup tones on the R30 all that pleasing as it's kind of "on or off", there isn't a smooth transition between clean and dirty IMO. The Natural channel cranked up does a better job but with only one knob it might be hard to get the volume you need.

For those edge/crunch tones in Orange land I would say go with the AD30TC. A Dual Terror might fit the bill as well if you can find one. I still greatly prefer my TT to my R30 for lower gain edge tones.

One thing you can try is to download the free demo of Amplitube. You can demo most of the Orange heads and see which one has the tone you are looking for. Of course they are not identical to the real thing, but would give you a rough estimation of what the amps sound like.

A spammer that has been lurking all this time after we stopped accepting new members wrote/copied the original post and we fell for it - then he went back and added a link to online casinos....

Ha! You were making changes as I was reading apparently. I thought I was going mental for a second there. First his post was there, then it was changed. I saw the casino link and was contemplating whether to reply seriously or report it as possible spam.
