Orange OR50H Review

The OR50H is not a new product. It belongs to the "Pics Only" series launched in 1972. It's a legend in amplification history and its "so British" sound had a great impact in the destiny of the manufacturer. Now Orange has decided to reissue a limited version of the amp for its 40's birthday. The idea was a great success and Orange decided to add this amp indefinitely to its product range. After this short story, it's time to unpack the amp. Read more…

    - Here we have an amp in the largest historical style Oranges'70
    X2 EL34 power
    3 12AX7 preamp (with a 12AX7 preamp more than historical amp for extra gain stage), a great simplicity of construction so.

    settings:
    attenuator
    "Presence"
    EQUAL three band (ultra efficient)
    gain

    bypass footswitch possible attenuator (possibility of a clear sound of madness

    UTILIZATION

    - "L" tube amp "!
    frankly here is a creature that I am not about to let go ...


    after fiddling around Orange amp that would suit me best (I did laugh vendors GuitarShop in my opinion .... super nice ADDITION ..)

    I initially purchased:

    - The OR15: nice grain but gain not progressive enough for me......

    frankly here is a creature that I am not about to let go ...


    after fiddling around Orange amp that would suit me best (I did laugh vendors GuitarShop in my opinion .... super nice ADDITION ..)

    I initially purchased:

    - The OR15: nice grain but gain not progressive enough for me (its impossible to have a clear-crunch loudly) and too rough with humbuckers. I mostly play on Gibson ES339 Custom Shop that (for me always) does not react the best in the world at this amp. I also use a certain piece Custom Strat who was doing a little better ..


    - Then TH30: Very clear, but a saturated too modern for my games and a really progressive gain at all) channel. frankly favorite purchase one month after OR15, I will listen to the best in store .. does absolutely not fit in my current directory (rock-blues 70'S)


    then the revelation: the OR50!

    use a little bit more complex than foreshadow the 6 buttons on the front, but once tamed beast is really fantastic ..

    SOUNDS

    Then it's the best for the Blues-Rock-Fusion 70's and beyond style ....

    we can go from a crystal clear sound (reminiscent of the old 70's plexi) Fender, types Vox light crunch, crunch typical Orange before entering the world of fuzz-saturation dear to the brand.

    clean sounds are wonderful, very friendly touch and types of guitar used. Reserve power is simply huge (especially with footswicht engaged and bypassed the attenuator so) .. you feel with a 412 that can fill its arena of Nimes without sound!!!!!!

    the crunch: I've never played an amp with which you can via the volume knob to interact well with the thickness of the jug (hard to describe) guitar. is super musical. my whole group hallucinated the first rehearsal with this amp. there is a very important natural reverb ..

    saturated sounds are striking: very dynamic and qualitative ... gary moore, page, zztop, clapton, .....

    should be noted that I play on tube amp for 15 years and I know very well the single-channel heads .....

    OVERALL OPINION

    absolutely perfect

    Single channel 50 watt lamp

    UTILIZATION

    It is therefore reissu the façade is very close to 70 amps with Pics Only and no registration is superb. The settings are very simple and you get a great sound is some configuration.

    SOUNDS

    It is relative, yes it is on the clean is very nuanced dynamic and progressive distortion goes crunch to hard rock or even more depending on the microphones and almost breathless.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not have, I just tried it with a Strat and a Lp and is the top in both cases. It is well above the RV and TH and power is manageable but the headroom with a 4x12 is huge so it is necessary to have a room with a large volume purchase otherwise it is a pure loss imho.
