Orange Thunderverb 50H
The Orange Amps Thunderverb 50 is a tube based guitar amp head that, like the name states, delivers 50 watts of power. It has a 1/4 inch input the front and has a speaker cable output in the back. The amp has two channels and has separate setting controls for each. On channel A, there are parameters for volume, treble, middle, bass, and gain, and on channel B there are knobs for volume, shape, and gain. There are then knobs for reverb and attenuation that apply to both channels.


Using the Orange Amps Thunderverb 50 amp is very easy and if you understand what basic parameters on guitar amps do, you will have no troubles with this amp. The inherent tone is great, and both channels have a good amount of parameters to control your tone. The manual for the Orange Amps Thunderverb 50 is thorough, but it is easy enough to use that you don't need it if you don't have one.


The sound quality of the Orange Amps Thunderverb 50 amp head is top notch for both clean and overdrive sounds. I have only used this amp for recording, and always get awesome results when I track with this. I usually use this amp with a Fender Strat or a Gibson SG, depending on what type of sound I am going for. While I love the clean sound, the overdrive on this is what really makes this a great amp head.


I've been using the Orange Amps Thunderverb 50 for recording for about a year and have found it to be a truly great amp. It is extremely easy to use, and has a very unique look to it, with symbols above each of the knobs. I have come to love just about every Orange amp that I have used, and this is one of the best they have to offer. Even though it isn't cheap, it is a high end amp that is probably priced right. If you are looking for a great amp for rock music, you absolutely can't go wrong with this amp.

Orange Thunderverb 50H
Any amp 50w lamps
Amplification Lamps: 2x EL34/6CA7
Lamps Preamp: 4 X 12AX7 & 2x 12AT7
Effects loop, attenuator, two channels, reverb, connectors 1 x 2 x 8ohm 16ohm


The config is on n'peut easier!
No need to book, it quickly gained a very good sound coupled with Orange212 cab or 412.


Channel 1 is crunch! We can still get a good clear sound by adjusting the gain of it (knob at 10 Max)
Channel 2 is much more wicked can dig the sound with the one setting Shape of the channel. It's very effective. Skip to medium distortion, see Lenny Kravitz at a much widened and its very sharp. With an orange 412, you literally take off.
We can change the sound by changing the lamps preamp.
I use a lot of effect to the delay loop. The result is superb with a good Telecaster!
The atténatueur is very useful to manage its level. The crunch is impaired if the attenuator is in position 3h (reverse run). Knob 1 hour is a good compromise.


I have 4 years.
I played on Hughes and Kettner and Rocktron (amplifiers), Carvin Amp coupled Tc G strength. The sound of the orange really is organic! Very hairy!
I'm not about to part with it, even if it is sometimes weighs 26kg me ...

Relatively simple to use, it sounds immediately. English manual.


Amp extremely versatile. Channel A clean sound to rock, the Crunch channel B to the metal. The clean is clean and warm crunches are beautiful, after the super grain distos must love the Orange. As I said we can go to the metal, but not extreme. I use a mh400nt Ltd., a sc-608b and ESP Ltd Standard Series E2-7 tb.


I use this head for 1 and a half months coupled with a PPC212. I tried the Engl, Blackstar's ... I wanted to say that the palm mute are huge, excellent! What I like is its versatility and quality of workmanship is impeccable. At the price it is an investment but it's really not disappointed. The attenuator is a real plus and not a gimmick. I will do exactly the same choice when I see the quality. If you are looking for a versatile amp, quality, manageable power, well do not look any further. To me this amp is a reference.

Orange Thunderverb 50H
50W lamps (as Marshall EL34)
1x8 ohm or 1x16ohm or 2x16ohm
2 channels - separate Eq
An attenuator

It's been ages that I peel magazines and one could cite 500 pros who have found the ultimate gear. Oddly, two years later they play on something else ... Every scratch knows that the amp to do anything if there is necessarily a defect. There are excellent pedals but 1) When you change the sound program cuts and 2) Passing through scanning: reactivity and certain sensations are erased. Of course, there's the stars What never changed, they have their sound. And if you like their sound, buy yourself the same stuff and you'll have the same sound (if you got the same technique, the same fingers on the same sound engineer ...)
Anyway, here to talk about the ch'uis Thunderverb 50.
Benefit # 1: Flat => 5W, home => 15W, repeat '=> 30W, cabaret => 50W, Outdoor => 100W, Bercy => 50000W ... The Thunderverb solved the pb. It includes a power attenuator (Powerbrake style) that dissipates power in the drifting resistance. Thus, heat lamps retain full capacity they would not turn down the volume (and PAN! Écubrouzoufs 200 of savings).
Benefit # 2: If you are young and crazy with lots of friends when you love muscular lugging your 4x12 just for fun. I have the middle part of Angus Young and I am not sure to beat the 100m Gibbons (Gandalf in dark glasses home zztop - 60 in 2009) or Richards (Stones 66 years in 2009 eaten by osteoarthritis). So a amp head of 55 cm it can be less large speakers that look like nothing in a Marshall head (75cm)
Benefit # 3: Tchénolé & tchénolbi. Yeah two channels is common and even more qu'y'a elsewhere. But if you seek sound like singing solo in the 70's then you'll buy a vintage Marshall tone and clear sound Well thou shalt make the volume of the guitar had only 1 passqu'y tchénol to the EPOC. Na!
Benefit # 4: The Dark Side Of The TonerreVerb. Orange, they have patented a special grave: the ETR (Extended Tone Range) that extends the bandwidth [which usually starts at low e is 80hz] to 30 Hz!. Low frequencies are handled so well (in fact, all channels gain and output transformer must be able to line up) that you can play on the guitar Thunderverb baritone or even bass without it boiled parte.
Disadvantage: The weight. We must seek to find the weight of the head. Finally it is heavy => consult the catalog of the brand.


Using simple hyper
Getting good sound is easier than getting a bad
The doc is very very shallow but very unnecessary


Really versatile with a provision for vintage sounds is missing in many other side but sounds, I prefer to leave the words to professionals.
Dr. Boost (Guitar Part) =>'s absolutely fantastic, electric guitars to sing, its organic matter almost palpable clear and crunch sounds, singing character of the range of distortion among the best ever heard, sitting absolutely remarkable in the lower register . Articulation unusual. A masterpiece of electronic and musicality.
Judge Fredd (Guitar-Xtreme): super fine grain, super powerful and can easily go tickle a lot of 100W. A setting of low bass that gives good solid round and present, highs very musical, never aggressive, full of nuances very rewarding, beautiful clean sounds, for the crunch and subtle, and the frank fat saturation well.


+ Sounds (it's still what counts)
- Weight (although almost a common head lamps)

you do again this choice? I doubt it. When you see the amount of all models more attractive as each other it would be too limited as to restrain his curiosity.

If not the kind to do anything stupid today, I know better
