pussyriots's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect Studio"

Orange AD5
Features can be more simple, a lamp, 5w, plug and play

UTILIZATION

Configuring Feneant is what I wanted. I have an old AC30 voice so I do not want 10 settings but I stand to stay in his brit and ad5 fulfilled all these criteria.

SOUNDS

For my part, I make garage rock (or es335 fender strat japan) but again it is too light with a drummer who hits like a lumberjack (I never tried transplanting). on the other hand Studio is a marvel. I use it with a firm 2 * 12 vox and it defends more than fine.
To double track or a solo by one by her, have a different tone in a tower volume is really terrible.

OVERALL OPINION

It is now three years since I used to supplement my AC30 in the studio and although I hesitate long ac4 with the opportunity to fact that I turned to this small (but powerful) orange.
I wanted to sell it there's little need for money, but to be honest, I pulled the ad because I think I really missed.
The price / quality ratio is very good on the market occas' and I would be up to € 250 but not more (remember that this is a 5w and you also pay the brand).
With the experience I would do this choice with a big YES because as I said, in the studio it's a bomb.
Why put a score of 8/10 then??? Well because they have added a 5W/7W switch that would not have been a luxury. Anyway, had to find a fault ;)

scarium's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Orange AD5
Amp watt bulbs 5W

HP 40W Celestion

Two knobs: volume (which coincides with the gain) and tone

Simple, but very few may lack rglages supplmentaires (gain)

UTILIZATION

Nothing to say, very simple: from 0 to 1 / 3 volume: clean which tends cruncher
above: overdrive and distortion from noon approximately

No manual.

SOUNDS

I played with a standard tlcaster.

It should be my style of music, blues / rock, grunge, garage.

Nothing to say about the sound is a very good quality. It sounds very british! With an OD pedal in front is even beautiful.

My sonority prfr on this amp: just over half the volume knob and 2 / 3 the volume of tonality with an Ibanez TS9 before, it sounds very grunge, garage.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months. I has a `other amp numrique compared the sound is really AD5 dgueulasse.

Report qualitprix way, paying off the mark. But the sound is, Don has nothing wrong.

The only problem: we must push for volume gain, and sends strong ca ... Should not be difficult neighbors.

With exprience, I would do this choice: to house, the sound is adequate, in that same group nickel. And this quality of sound ... !

rubnvanvel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Orange AD5
5W-power lamps (very powerful, especially mounted on a 4x12)

-1 Volume (mounted between the two preamp gain =), a tone (treble cut)

-1 HP 10 "40W 16 Ohm and 1 output

UTILIZATION

We can no longer simple, an adjustable volume (gain) and a tone

One branch, we play ... there is no simpler! a manual? I have not had

SOUNDS

-Sound is already amazing in combo, it is bluffing when it is plugged into a speaker (2x12 "front for mine)

-The only problem is that it is a single channel ... So if you want to pluissance, we must play with distortion and vice versa, we can not play at low volumes with distortion.
(Unless you go up a volume knob at the entrance of the light amplification)

-The sound is typical of Orange, vintage vintage vintage! You can spend a very creamy with a clean greasy and aggressive distortion. The advantage of 5W is that really benefits from its typical volume resonance lamp!

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it for 2 months as amp apartment

-I like the feature on this amp is its warmth and crunch to mid-volume, the less it is crunch fairly quickly (in 1 / 4 gain) ... but what a crunch too!!

"I hesitated with the Super Champ XD Fender 15w, which has more possibilities bcp (long live the digital) but with experience the AD-5 is much better quality!

-I am now in love with the Orange so I do it again the same choice with experience!

09:squeal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Orange AD5
5W tube amp: a EL84 power and a 12AX7 preamp in
An instrument input, an output HP 16 Ohms (in addition to the output for the combo of HP)
Simple adjustments: an OFF / Stand-by / ON, volume, tone

UTILIZATION

Super simple setup, plug, turn the volume knob and it sounds right now! Note that the volume control is also used to gain control: from 1 / 3, the volume is already at maximum, then the more you increase this setting, the greater the gain.
The tone is very effective

SOUNDS

It is perfect for my style of music: rock 70's / 80's
I play a Hamer Standard Custom fitted with Seymour 59 'and with a Stratocaster Classic Player 60's.
There are really sound a bit "fat" feature of Orange amps. With a "large" Orange AD30, the comparison is easy.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month, either at home or in rehearsal, where he is more than enough, even with a drummer maniac!
A € 360, it may seem expensive for a small amp like this, but the quality is really there, and it has nothing to do with a field 600 or a Valve Junior (I have these 2 amps), the Orange is in the range above.
This choice I would do without hesitation.
