Orange OR15H Guitar Amplifier Head (15 Watts)

A smaller sibling to the OR50 with an FX loop and switchable 7/15 watts power, this all-tube head combines vintage vibe with modern Orange design and tone.

Don't be fooled by the retro styling. Behind the OR15's "Pics Only" faceplate lives a modern, high-gain 15W amp capable of a hugely diverse range of Orange tones. Based on the Dirty channel of Orange's flagship Rockerverb amps, this EL84-powered little monster pushes out everything from classic cleans to cutting-edge Metal, oozing character at every notch on its five simple dials.

Amazingly playable and switchable from 15 Watts to 7, the responsive EL84 output section and power switching options offer the perfect balance of gain, volume and feel, finding the elusive "sweet spot" in any stage or studio setting. Complete with a valve-buffered FX Loop, the OR15 is equally at home with old-school players "riding the volume control" or at the centre of a complex, modern rig.

Single 4-Stage Channel

The OR15's stripped-down preamp shares its DNA with Orange's flagship Rockerverb's Dirty Channel. This simple, 4-stage design with its intuitive-yet-powerful 3-band EQ covers the entire spectrum of classic amp sounds from vintage to modern. Clean, crunch and super-high gain are just a tweak away, whether you're plugging straight in or boosting the amp with your favourite drive pedals.

EL84 Power Amp with Output Power Switching

Using a pair of EL84 valves and the same robust, proprietary transformers as Orange's Terror series amps, the OR15 delivers a hard-hitting 15 Watts in Full Power mode. Club stages are easily filled with rich power amp overdrive. For those seeking a little read more less headroom, the 7W Half Power setting gives you the same cranked amp feel at a more modest level.

Valve-Buffered Effects Loop

No modern amp would be complete without a great FX Loop. Orange's highly transparent, all-valve design makes sure your signal path gets nothing but the best treatment, no matter how complex your pedal setup.

Classic "Pics Only" Styling

In 1972, Orange launched a guitar amp which came to define the Orange sound -- the Graphic. Years later it was dubbed the 'Pics Only' due to the use of Orange's signature 'hieroglyphs' and the absence of any text. The OR15 echoes this design, saluting this iconic piece of Orange history.

I love this amplifier!! It does what it's supposed to. It's much louder than I thought it would be.....15 watts RMS into my 4-12 cab is so loud I use a Weber 50 watt Load Dump to tame it. This amp does everthing I need it to, and has an effect loop as well. Get one now!!
