"Orange You Glad I Didn't Buy a Banana?"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
There really isn't much to say about this cab; it's a standard Orange closed back 2x12 with the Celestion Vintage 30's. I needed something a little smaller than the 4x12 I was using, and yet it seems like I've upgraded everything about my sound
This is the sound I always thought my Peavey 5150 was supposed to have; and I've finally reached gear Nirvana (at least for my tone needs). It has the solid low end; perfect mids, and creamy highs that you seek (assuming you seek the same sound as I do; of course, your mileage may vary). It's super responsive, and sounds great no matter what I'm running in front of it.
I typically switch off between the 5150 and an Orange Tiny Terror; some days I'll run 10 pedals up front, sometimes I go straight Guitar to Head; but this unit sounds phenomenal with anything you throw at it.
If you're familiar with the Celestion Vintage 30's, then you know exactly how this will sound. It is your standard rock setup; whether hard and heavy, or soft and mellow, this cab will make your axe sing.
There really aren't any crazy features; it's a guitar cab. You've got an input jack, and a link jack (for connecting a second cab, I believe?).
Ease of Use
It's plug and play.
The quality on this cab is amazing; however, it's so sturdily built, that it's a hefty unit. While still very portable, it is only slightly less heavy than my 4x12 was, and it's a bit bulky.
I wouldn't be afraid if this thing fell down a flight of stairs, it just wouldn't look as pretty.
If it wasn't built so sturdy, I would say it's not worth it; but this is one of those cabs you'll keep for life (or until your drug habit forces you to sell it after you've become a famous rockstar and hit rock bottom).
I haven't had to deal with Orange Customer Support; but I'm sure they're super nice guys and gals.
The Wow Factor
It's a cool orange color, so that's pretty sweet. I'm worried that the orange will show scuffs a little better, but that remains to be seen.
