volume control, gain, overdrive, low high med ...
no effects.

Quite nice finish. Facade aluminum, woven grill cloth I think. Quality plastics.

UTILIZATION

Super simple to use. I bought it for my students. Small, easy to store and nice neutral sound to play at low volumes.
On / Off button is located behind a little soft to the touch. Few give the impression of the game ..

The horizontal facade is really well thought out. And yes, they have finally understood that small combos have a different use of heads being placed on a stack ...

SOUNDS

What about ... For 66 € it is suitable for all styles and no.
The sound is neutral, and quite audibly playable ... a little dry. A little reverb would surely have been an asset. One can easily assayed the volume with the gain and overdrive to find a good compromise that suits the guitar.
I can not find the super overdrive. The sound was a bit disappointed compared to the demos I saw on the internet with some models + flights.

This is an amp for beginners or study. I use it for spinning classes then.


OVERALL OPINION

Although the Orange logo suggests a completely different song, the value for money is beyond reproach ...
In hindsight, I would add qques euros for a model with a little more character.
