If you are bored at work and need to get some cooling down time with a guitar and amp in hand but limited in space and noise, then this is a nice amp for you. This is a great little practice pocket amp for those who are in need of some jam time and need to be quiet or on a tight budget.

The tone from something this small is quite amazing! It actually replicates a very close tone to a real tube Orange amp. It is obvious that the tone will be different but the character of that famous orange British tone is all there in a small package.

It doesn't matter what guitar you are playing with this amp. You are intending to quietly jam away in piece. So grab what ever guitar is your favorite and jam along with a pair of headphones. The amp will not take away from your guitar's natural tone.


Another great feature I love about this amp is that it has a tuner built right in. So all you really need to carry with you is your guitar and or headphones and a cable. This makes jamming in your home or office a lot more convenient.

At new these amps come in at around $60, which is a fantastic price for something this basic and portable. It carries a strong tone for those worried about how good it can sound. I highly recommend this amp for the silent player at home or office.
