What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor, ...)?

What is the power delivered?
30W Class A

What connection?
A guitar input
2 output 8ohms
An output 16ohms

What are the settings, the effects?
2 channels: Clean / Dirty
One volume for the clean
3-band EQ, volume and gain for the Dirty


The configuration is simple?
Conernant is how clean the ... saying childish. Volume, I have never seen an amp that simple. I even lost when I use the other.
The dirty, a little more difficult compared to clean.

Do you get a good sound easy?
I do not see the interest as dune question, there is no bad sound on this Orange. I use it constantly with clean, it's my guitar and my effects that alter the sound.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
I have not seen the manual, at least I have no memory and I've never had any use.


Will it fit your style of music?
Ah very good question, I am very "boring" for the sounds I want. In general, I play casiment all styles of music can I go to a beautiful clean a large metal.
It keeps in all cases the warmth and roundness of the sound, but it swallows all the pedals I give him, as for the guitars.

With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
It took a lot of guitars:
- Ibanez SAS, Sabre, SZR, Jem;
- Gretsch: G5120
- Epiphone: Tribute
- Blade Texas Standard
On the effects, as mentioned above, he accepts it all. I have not seen a single pedal he did not like in 3 years.

What types of sounds you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat", ....)?
Just find the pedal or guitar and you'll get the sound you want easily. Do not forget that it keeps its characteristic sound so warm and round for clean rather slamming the Fender is difficult.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I will talk about sound in terms of clean or dirty, no effects added.
I begin with the sound I do not like it because after having my vox, I finally gave up the kind of clean Fender Beatles, Hendrix etc.. When he, yeah he does well but next to a vox ...
I love the sounds, the Gretsch with Dirty while playing the ZZ Top. In the kind "I have the sound of Gibbons' yeah quite frankly is was very confusing.
The rock, the blues a little round or harder to ACDC is just beautiful. Noted that Angus has played a very short time on Orange before being Marshall.


How long you use it?
Since 3 years and this is just the beginning.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
Frankly, everything. This is my first Orange, I do not really know the brand and the sounds that came out today and I do not want under any circumstances to part with it.
What I like most is the side P & P, because I do not use much the Dirty, a single volume knob is enough for me very well. As long as the guitar is good, I manage my saturation with it.

Did you tried many other models before buying it?
So to be honest, this is my first full lamp. I can already hear the critics arrive like "it begins well, it means he has expensive tastes." Just look at the price I paid nine to understand that I jumped at the chance.
More seriously, then I tried a lot of amp full lamp and although I am big fan of Vox for example, the Orange will never leave me.

How would you rate the quality / price?
For me, € 677 new, 3yr warranty ... I have trouble finding such a quality / price ratio. On its normal value ie about 1200 €, the value for money is fine, but nothing. The prestige of the brand that appear in the price anyway. Do not forget this is a Made In England.

With experience, you do again this choice?
No need to answer this question because it is so obvious. For information, I go on a stack and I was so afraid of not finding this version in mind that I preferred to find the head before selling the combo is to say ...
