Orange has been building high quality amps now since the 60's. they claim that they are the Marshall killer. They certainly do have a great tone to their amps and you don't have to get the thing modified. So maybe they are a Marshall killer but any company that uses another company to claim what they are is still only second fiddle.

This amp has two channels and a basic Eq sweeping control section. You get the basic setup like an old Fender amp. You will be be missing the middle control knob like you would see on many Fender amps. You also don't get a presence control knob which many amps do have to allow you to shape the tone depending on the room that you are in.



Clean/Dirty channels
Switchable 7W, 15W, 30W outputs
Clean channel controls: Volume, Bass, Treble
Dirty channel controls: Volume, Shape, Gain
4 ECC83 preamp tubes
4 EL84 power amp tubes
ECC81 FX-loop tube


The tone of this amp is very good. It defiantly has a vintage feel to it. You get the controls set up much like a vintage amp where they didn't have a midrange control knob a lot of times. So the clean channel does not have that but the gain channel has a shape knob that changes the midrange a little bit. So you don't really need it in the clean channel but the gain does make up for it. This amp is really a vintage style amp through and through. You get many of the features and the basic overall tone is very vintage feeling.


You can find these amps pretty easily online or in many shops where you would buy other similar products like Mesa Boogie or Marshall. These amps come in new right at around $1200, which is a great price for this kind of quality amplifier.

I would recommedn this to any player that needs a great sounding and high quality vintage style amp that is 30 watts and two channels. this is good players amp and will serve its owner quite well night after night of gigging. You get a solid tone and very usable front panel to dial in the perfect blend of channels.
