Orange Rocker 32 Guitar Combo Amplifier (30 Watts, 2x10")

With a 2x10 setup and wide spread, the stereo-capable Rocker 32 is perfect for pedal-happy players looking for a full-range delivery that doesn't lack life.
Many of today's guitarists are looking for the best partner for their pedalboard but ultimately end up with an amp that's lifeless and lacking in character. With the Rocker 32 however, we've nailed the perfect pedal amp. What makes the Rocker 32 so special? Simple. It's an all-valve stereo guitar amp in a compact and portable combo format.

The Rocker 32 can be run just like a 'normal' combo - straight in or with standard mono effects loop connections. Even before you start experimenting, you'll soon realise that this is not just another bland, soulless pedal platform, but a serious amplifier in its own right. The Rocker 32 has classic Orange mojo in abundance and its 2x10" configuration means a full and fat delivery whilst keeping the footprint small. There's even some clever circuitry under the hood to give the amp a wider spread of sound than most regular twin speaker combos.

At the heart of the Rocker 32, though, is its stereo effects loop which opens up a world of limitless possibilities for your pedalboard. If you're into epic panning delays and massive soundscapes, connect the Rocker 32 for full stereo operation for enormously spatial tones that wash over the audience. If you're more old-school, you can patch your pedals in 'wet/dry' mode, with your effects appearing on one speaker and your clean guitar tone on the other. This makes for great separation and clarity on stage.

The front end of the Rocker 32 is one-of-a-kind. The read more Natural channel features just one control (Volume), and has been carefully voiced to bring out every nuance of different guitars, pickups and pedal combinations. There is plenty of clean headroom here but this channel also loves to be hit with overdrive and distortion stomps.

The Dirty channel has a more familiar look to it with a three band EQ, gain and master volume controls, and can be set clean or adjusted for different flavours of British crunch. There's also a handy half power mode to drop the volume level if you like to push the EL84 output valves a bit harder for more saturation. This switches the Rocker 32 from the full 30 Watts (15W a side) down to a more home-friendly 15 Watts (7W a side).

Features

MONO OR STEREO OPERATION
There are some great studio-quality effects for guitarists nowadays with two outputs for stereo operation, but normally you'll need a pair of amps to take advantage. The Rocker 32 features a stereo effects return with two separate valve output stages, so you can unlock full potential of your pedalboard with just a single self-contained stereo combo.
If you like to keep things simple, the Rocker 32 can be connected just like any other mono amp, but the loop can also be patched in various ways to achieve stereo panning effects, a wet/dry setup or even to run separate effects chains to each speaker (with the help of a ABY splitter).

UNIQUE TWIN CHANNEL DESIGN
If you've ever wondered what your guitars or your pedals actually sounded like, the Rocker Series amps are a joy to play. The 'Natural' channel features just one control for volume and is voiced for absolute transparency. Single coils ring out with true clarity and humbuckers sing with woody overtones.

Cleaner settings produce clear, glistening tones whilst cranking the volume reveals a bluesy crunch that loves to be kicked harder with boost and overdrive pedals. Quite literally, you get out what you put in. The 'Dirty' channel has a more traditional layout with Gain, Master Volume and a three band EQ. It too can be set on the cleaner side as a second rhythm sound, or dialled for various flavours of British grit for leads. (Optional FS-1 footswitch sold separately).

BIG SOUND, SMALL FOOTPRINT
The Rocker 32's clever dual output stage design and 2x10" speaker configuration means this amp sounds much bigger than its dimensions would suggest. One output stage features its own cathode follower which adds a subtle widening effect.

"Orange Rocker 32 review"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have not purchased many amps in my life, so lets just say I went "big" on this purchase. I must say that my expectation level was exceeded by the Quality of the Orange Rocker32. The sound is clean and loud. The dirty channel is my favorite, and you can tweak it to sound really nice and warm, or you can crank the gain and get this thing to really growl. So far I have played a Epi Les Paul with a pair of Humbuckers, and I was blown away by what I heard! I since added some Seymore Duncan Antiquity Texas Hot SC Pickup set to an old Squier guitar I picked up, and HOLY COW! This amp DELIVERS!

Sound
The tone from this amp is really nice. I cannot express how satisfied I am with the sound and power of this amplifier. I play in my garage, and I wanted to be able to hear the full tones of the guitar and notes being played, and I got all of that and then some. I never plan to play for an audience, but this amp is well capable of supporting a live show. I have always had it at the half power setting for my application, and knowing I can double that output gives me comfort knowing I will never need to buy another amp again.

Features
The send receive makes for sweet reverb / modulation effects to be heard in stereo from the combo box is incredible. The stereo out option to a second cabinet will separate the stereo sound and really bring the sound to life! I plan to add a 1x12 Orange cabinet to the setup soon for the added read more spatial sounds.

Ease of Use
This amp sounds amazing! 3 - 4 volume setting in my garage is about all I can push without being to disturbing, but the more power you give it, the better it sounds! seriously, this is a remarkable sounding amplifier.

Quality
Rock Solid build and I think this will last for the rest of my life.

Value
Would I have liked to get the amp for less than $1000.00 , sure.. but at $1099.00 at the time I purchased it , I cannot complain at ALL. It has exceeded my expectations and set a bar of expectation if I even need to purchase another amplifier again

Manufacturer Support
No need for support

The Wow Factor
