This is an exciting head from Orange is a two channel head with added reverb and 50 watts of power. Orange claims they are the Marshall slayer or killer and to an unmodded Marshall there definitely is an argument for that statement.

This amp has a sweet chewy gain distortion that is very inviting to play. The clean channel is also equally as amazing. It is pristine and chimey with a big dose of sparkle. Both channels has a great use in a live setting as well as being in the recording studio.

SOUNDS

I prefer the distortion channel a lot for its thick gain that sustains and is very easy to play. Some times amps can be to tight of too sloppy on the bottom end but I find that this amp has the perfect blend of tightness with the added chewier thick distortion that gets a little looser.

There interesting thing about this amp is that it doesn't have a presences control knob. I thoughts that is interesting because Marshal does have those and you would think an amp that claims to slay the Marshall would have that feature. Either way this is a great amp for some good clean vintage tones and some nice grind distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $ 2100, which isn't bad for this amp. It is a great sounding boutique amp quality 50 watt amp. I would recommend this to a classic rock player you likes the voicing of a classic rock amplifier and needs some modern features. These are great amps for the money and their tone is worth the price of admission.
