Orange OR120
The Orange Amps OR 120 is a tube based guitar amp head that is delivers 120 watts of power, as the name states. It has both a high and low 1/4 inch input in the front, with a speaker cable output in the back for sending this amp to a cabinet. It also has send and return 1/4 inch connections in the front for echo if you choose to use it. It also has handles on it so you can easily bring it around.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Orange Amps OR 120 is really easy to follow, as it does not have an exurbanite amount of parameters. It does have knobs for master, gain, presence, treble, bass, and FAC, from the right to left and definitely provides a good amount of control over your tone. Getting a good sound is extremely easy as the inherent tone is very rich and the overdrive is outstanding. I don't have a manual for the Orange Amps OR 120, but it is easy enough to use that you don't need it if you don't already have one.

SOUNDS

The sounds that you can get from the Orange Amps OR 120 are really awesome. While it excels mostly for its overdrive tones, the clean tone is great as well. I have only used this amp with guitar, as that is what it is designed for - usually a Fender Strat or a Gibson SG, always with results I'm happy with. The overdrive tone is crunchy and quite full, while the clean sound is vibrant and nice sounding. This amp is perfect for rock music, especially for harder rock, but will work great for a variety of genres.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Orange Amps OR 120 for about two years, and I have found it to be yet another great amplifier from Orange Amps. When it comes to built in overdrive, no one makes better amps than Orange, and the Orange Amps OR 120 is one of their best in terms of overdrive. This amp isn't cheap, but whether you are a professional or an amateur it is worth the price because you will be getting a high end guitar amp that you can use for years to come. All in all, I highly recommend the Orange Amps OR 120 to all guitar players.

Orange OR120
Paid $1,000 CDN used.

I just love the way it looks, colour, knobs, graphics. It is also quite loud and is great for putting your processed tone through.

As there is no master volume, distortion requires that you really turn up..which is a big problem..because the amp will mercilessly blow the speakers out of the cab and the windows out of the house. It is also unspeakably heavy.

Still works after 31 years...

It's nice to have a piece of history.

UTILIZATION

CONFIGURATION simplissime IT IS SUFFICIENT TO TAKE TIME TO MAKE ITS OWN, THE ADVANTAGE OF THESE OLD AMPS: IT'S SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE.
The only downside is that it lacks A STAND-BY FOR LAMPS ECONOMISSER.
BUT WAS NEVER GOOD CA ORANGE ON THE CONCEPT forgiveness.

SOUNDS

I PLAY THE STONER STYLE KYUSS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, HERMANO, Soundgarden LET ME TELL YOU THAT THIS IS THE AMP TO BE ME, THE SON OF SATAN STRAIGHT TO HELL !!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!
I use a Gibson Les Paul PROBUSTERS WITH PRO AND HIWATT CABINET FOR NOW BUT I CAN I TAKE THE CABINET WITH ORANGE 4X12 V30 Celect.

Used the following ITS CRUNCH TO HAVE A PRETTY FAT:

INPUT HIGH / FAC MAXIMUM LEFT / LOW THREE QUARTER / A LITTLE LESS FOR ACUTE / PRESENCE THREE QUARTER / 10:00 ET GAIN MASTER 2:00 (I hope you understand).

I get a HUGE SUSTAIN.

FOR ITS A BIG STONER I add a DS1 DISTORTION OF BOSS IN MADE IN JAPAN OR BOX OF JAMES MERCER.
I HAVE FOR SIMPLIFIED three different saturation NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SOUNDS OF CHEMICAL AMPLIFIER DIGITAL MODERN PSEUDO.
I THINK YOU MAY ALSO HAVE A SON BLUESY IF YOU WANT TO DO IT JUST DO THE RIGHT SETTINGS.

OVERALL OPINION

SINCE I HAVE THIS AMP, a month before his little brother I HAVE THE FAMOUS OR 120, BUT THE SOUND WAS TOO ROUND WITH A LACK OF CRUNCH.
I THINK THE ORANGE OVERDRIVE 120 CORRESPOND MORE MY STYLE OF MUSIC.
THE FACTS 120 OVERDRIVE FOR A ROCK HARDER.
AND OR 120 FOR A ROCK OR MORE BLUESY JAZZY.
I have owned Marshall (JCM 900 and JCM 800) BEFORE AND IT IS TRUE THAT THE SOUND IS REALLY DIFFERENT ORANGE making it HIS SUCCESS, SOME IN THE LINE Matamp but better.
MINIMUM PRICES FOR 1000 AS OF OCCAZ .... I KNOW IT'S EXPENSIVE BUT ARE VERY RARE AND AMPS RATING TODAY. WHAT YOU IN ANY EVENT FOR THIS PRICE IN ANY LIGHT TODAY??
IF YOU WANT ONE: GO TO EBAY SIDE WITH A LITTLE PATIENCE AND CHANCE YOU MIGHT HAVE.

Orange OR120
It's true it's a pity I have not met yet this opinion, as bcp people want information on Orange amps!
then 120w lamps (4el34)
both inputs low-hi
college ki a knob changes the grain Lampl it looks like (it fo hear the result to describe what was done)
bass, treble, presence (and yeah no middle)
a gain knob groo
a master groooo portard
then echo send / return
and a switch on / off, no standby

Me just for his charisma, I want to put him anywhere lol 10 is not trs goals, go back I

UTILIZATION

The config is very simple, there are faster trs sound research (I think if you are interested this brand is that you know o is the sound you want)
good sound easy to get there? oh yes it is in large master 10, 4 / 5 we feel that the head said 'I'll put is 10'
orange sincerely aa a personality so the sound is warm, bold, smooth as we like (a feeling of tomato soup by writing a lol)

I'll put that nine out of 10 because the master 120w af bobo noreilles; neenmoins an amp technician can make the change for the switch to 60w (take the opportunity to ask him to add a stand by, look forward to your lamps )

SOUNDS

It is ideally suited my style of music can be a bit bold, but it does not matter
if you want to listen: www.moka420.com/mp3 (http://www.moka420.com/mp3)

I play on the head with a jackson and esp (no vintage trs eh) pending a prs that she must be happy;)

OVERALL OPINION

I have a few months, the head is more than enough for group rehearsals (if 120w lamps enough ...)
what I like most is its look and sound, orange amps are super charismatic and I am just waiting for her little 4x12 should happen in May!
what I like least is the fact that the sound is not final k background.
excellent price quality ratio!

exprience with my choice I do it again without worry and if fate puts puts in front of this situation so I bought him a girlfriend!

I use a Soldano sp-77 preamp and the sound is ultra heavy rock as we love

we will loose the marshall and they joined the orange
