Less is definitely more
ChrisR, 15.05.2018
I had considered some other Orange heads (OR15 and Dark Terror in particular) but decided to go for this one since it's more of an all-rounder. It didn't disappoint.

First off, it's important to state that this amp is not a total gain monster, but what it IS built for is tone. It does have enough gain on tap for a heavy rock sound, but for a really high-gain sound, a boost or OD pedal is probably needed (I've used mine with a Maxon OD808, TC Electronic Spark, Boss SD-1 and MXR MC401 in the studio, with satisfying results every time).

That being said, the basic sound of both channels is really good, the tone control on each channel is very versatile and allows a whole range of tonal variation. from rich cleans through to filthy overdrive; because it isn't voiced with a thousand dials, its response and signal path are very direct, it feels very organic to play, and it responds very well to pedals, which means any fine-tuning is easy once you find the basic sound you want.

It's also easy to maintain, changing the valves/tubes is quick and simple because it's self-biasing, and obviously it's mega-portable.

All in all, this is a good, versatile amp that is idiot-proof to use and gives "that" Orange sound, and can easily do what the more "specialized" Orange amps do, if combined with the right pedals. I would definitely recommend it.

Amazing little amp with big sound!
03.09.2015
I wanted to get a tiny terror, but i needed two channels so i can have a clean and a dirty channel for live use. I like smaller amps like 25-30 watts, because you can push them to the limits while recording and live without busting your hearing. Don't get me wrong its a loud amplifier and has plenty of great features like a switch to 15 watts, as well as the ability to go from four to two valves. All this makes a great difference to the sound. The only issue i've had with this amp is the absence of an fx loop. Either than that it delivers a great clean, crunch and distortion tone. It's not a very high gain amplifier, but you can always boost it with an overdrive pedal, but then again its not meant to be a metal amp. Its perfect for gigs, because its easy to carry and great for recording. I highly recommend it!

Cool head for rock!
GrandMasterBeat, 04.09.2020
This amp head is worth its cost. The only thing that I wanted to be in it-FX Loop (send/return), because without Fx Loop it is impossible use rever/delay pedals, u can do it, but I don't think that u will be satisfied with the sound.

Totally in love with this amp
Karby, 17.01.2021
I have been using this amp for longer than 7 years. Great at recording as well as home practice and jamming. I actually don't mind the lack of Bass Middle and Treble controls, the Tone control is very accurate and changes your tone a lot when playing with the knob.

I only recently had to change tubes and do some maintenance work, but so far i absolutely love this amp and i'm also using the Crush20 amp for practice!
