One of my favorite British voice amplifiers in the world has to be Orange amplifiers. They have such a great tone certainly more leanings vintage type tones. They are pretty aggressive in their sound and heavy gain and a stick behind the motto of Marshall killer. I wouldn't say that these amplifiers are Marshall killers but they certainly don't have to be modified as much as you would see Marshall amplifiers. They already come well-equipped with loads of gain if you need that which is generally the reason why you modify a Marshall amplifier. Marshalls don't really come stock with a ton of gine but you have to send it off to a guitar or amp tech to get some modifications done to give you that gain you here on most hard rock and metal albums.

This amplifiers basically 30 watt two channel combo amplifier. Each channel has two separate signal paths that allow you to dial in each respective channel individually and on your own. This is not like a amplifier that claims its multiple channels then uses the same EQing as the other channel. This is a great amplifier to get you a great British voice tone this can be plenty saturated and great for recording and gigging. In any application this amp will be a perfect fit.


These amps come in right around $2200 or so on the new market. It is not that bad of a price for a great sounding solid combo amplifier that is made in the united kingdom. It is a good sounding combo that will be perfect for gigging and recording. It has a voicing more towards a vintage tone so if that is your thing then this is a great amp for your needs.
