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


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


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.


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.
