"Thick Orange Growl"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is such a useful and great sounding head. Easy to take with you. It sounds good at low wattage volumes, and sounds great with a band. I can see wanting a Fender for some more serious clean tones, but I would not replace this little monster.
Great Orange "growl" through and through. Tubes are easy to get warmed up with the options of cutting out half of the output tubes, or cutting down the wattage. You can get great saturated tone at low volumes, or can really get it cookin at 30 watts. It gets plenty loud. Of course, with Orange, there is great overdrive sound... and the drive is just better than a lot of pedals could ever do. There is also a very nice just slightly dirty tone, with the drive right about half way up. This amp doesn't have a lot of clean headroom, but that really isn't what Orange is about.
Very simple, and meant to be. Vol, Tone, and Drive for each channel. I love that the output is switchable between 7,15, and 30 watts. There is a jack to plug in a footswitch (not included). An effects loop would have been nice, but the limited pedals I use work fine in front.
Ease of Use
Very simple to dial up great tone.
It is PRC, but seems very well designed and made. Very sturdy.
For the (mid)low price, it is a great tube amp. Can easily power a 4-12 and cook, and sounds great through my 1-12.
Have not had an issue.
The Wow Factor
Simple amp that sounds great. It has a nasty heavy growl, but can play some great blues tones, too. Everyone that hears, sees, or plays it loves it.
