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.
