"An awesome bedroom amp! "
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
So I bought this to be a bedroom practice amp just to mess with in my spare time and in the end I got what I paid for plus a lot more. The clean channel is okay, not as good as the clean channel in a Fender but as good as most of the other competition you'll find in the same price range. The dirty channel is where things start to get fun. This amp has a satisfying crunch that you wouldn't normally associate with a 250 dollar combo amp and it's awesome.
This little amp can also make some seriously loud noise for no larger than it is. I've yet to turn either master knob all the way over because, honestly, in my smaller room that I play in it would almost be painful lol. The speaker puts out sound at a high volume and the tones that come out are great.
As far as quality goes it's not bad by any means. The knobs feel like they're made of a cheaper plastic but they stay where you put them and that's all that matters there. I opted for the orange Orange lol and I wasn't disappointed, it looks awesome! The amp was shipped in two boxes and worked perfectly upon arrival so kudos to both Orange and Zzounds there.
All and all if you're looking for a good sounding practice/bedroom amp then you can't go wrong here and if you're looking for a good sounding practice amp that catches the eye then you really can't go wrong lol.
As far as the ratings go, everything is great. The amp doesn't have many features, however, as it's fairly old fashioned. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. With the amp you get clean and dirty channels, built in reverb, and a little tuner built in.
As for manufacturer support.. well.. I've not had to contact Orange so I can't really answer on that one.
The clean channel isn't bad but isn't the best out there. The dirty channel is very dirty, sounds extremely good for a solid state amp, and is very, very fun!
You get standard bass, treble, and middle as well as master volume controls for both the dirty and clean channels. The only real "extra features" you get are built in reverb and a tuner.
Ease of Use
It's pretty simple and analogue. Adjust a few knobs and go to town, option paralysis shouldn't be an issue here.
Everything is fantastic, only nitpick is that the knobs do feel like they're made of cheaper stuff but that really is a nitpick.
It's a bit on the pricy side when compared to similar amps in the same sort of category, but I don't regret buying it one bit!
Haven't had to call Orange for anything yet but I'll report back if I ever do.
The Wow Factor
It's a bright orange little amp that makes awesome noises. It's got plenty of wow factor haha.
