Organic Orange Tone
On the "Pics Only" control panel of either Rocker amp, you'll find the Natural channel accompanied by a single knob with a speaker icon. That's right, Natural is as pure as it gets -- just a single volume knob, letting your pedals shape the EQ and do the rest. And fear not, this is no sterile-sounding clean channel -- it's got plenty of headroom, but is also touch-sensitive and translates your pedals' tones brilliantly.
Just to the right is the Dirty channel, with volume, gain and 3-band EQ. This channel also sounds great with pedals, but makes for easier tone shaping and gets you into that signature Orange crunch tone right away.
Rocker 32's Secret Weapon: Stereo Effects Loop
Own a few stereo modulation or delay pedals? Unless you've got them hooked up to two amps, you're probably not getting their full character. The Rocker 32's ingenious effects loop that can be run in mono or with a stereo return, to accommodate two 1/4" outputs from a stereo pedal. This split signal heads to two valve output stages which lead to each of the 32's two 10" speakers. You can also connect your pedals in stereo for a wet/dry mix between the two speakers, or run two unique effects loops to each speaker with the help of an ABY switch.
As a 1x10" combo, the Rocker 15 does not handle stereo effects like its big brother, but it does offer a valve-buffered effects loop, especially handy for those who like to use modulation and delay with gain dialed in on the Dirty channel.
From Bedroom to Headroom
If you need an amp that's appropriate for practice at home and with the band, you'll want to give the Rocker 15 a look. Its on-board attenuator lets you switch between "Headroom" and "Bedroom" modes, which -- when run in conjucntion with the selectable full power/half power/standby switch -- lets you dial in 15, 7, 1 or .5 watts of power! That range represents everything from small gigs to studio sessions, even volumes that won't wake the neighbors.
The Rocker 32 does not feature the same attenuation control, but its half power/full power switch lets you between 30 and 15 watts, letting you crank those EL84s a little earlier if you like.
A few key accessories from Orange can really put your Rocker combo over the top. Of course, you can never have too many cables -- why not try a matching Orange instrument cable?
