These are full of tone and simple features. Orange in my opinion has really done an exceptional job at producing some of the best if not the best small solid state amps on the market.

This has has a natural tone that is very close to the tones you hear from other Orange amps that have tubes. The tone is full and though still thin as all solid states are, it still is able to sound great enough to record with and practice with a band.

SOUNDS

At 20 watts this little amp is able to produce some high volume riffing. The tone is remarkable for being a solid state amp. You can get some meaty tone or even some sparkly clean tones with easy.

I like Orange amps with a nice Gibson Les Paul. They have a nice chewy tone that is complimented well with a sweet mahogany guitar with humbucker pickups. It will sound fantastic with a Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster too, but I find they work best with a good solid guitar. Since it is solid state the single coils can get very thin and the tone is less desirable.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $160, which is a steal of a price. You can get a whole lot anymore for less than $200. This amp is a stellar amp for practicing at home or in your office. It has the headphone jack to you can jam along quietly without disturbing anyone around you.

I would recommend this to anyone needing a good practice amp and doesn't want to break the bank to buy one. You really only need a guitar and a cable since it has a built in tuner. You can take this easily on the go.
