"ORANGE How they got where they are"

First, zZounds must get props for doing the right thing. Hard to find a company you can say that about. I am an ecstatic Crush Pro owner, and took a "vulture's perch" over the Clearance section of the zZounds site, waiting for a blem, warehouse reseal, scratch and dent Crush Pro412 cab to appear. Weeks of failing that, a PPC212-OB blem was sitting there and late one night after reviewing the budget, I pulled the trigger on it....seconds after someone else bought "the last one". Not in the system, they took 1st payment, and I didn't find out about the cancellation until the next morning, and I was livid! While I was ranting at the Rep, I did a double take on his offer to make things right, which he most certainly did. When my new cab arrived, the ecstasy continued. Orange has always been Top of the Line, maybe with Marshall's top-line gear. BUT, your going to STILL need an OD pedal to get the Orange OD SOUND. Originally bought a Laney Cab cab 212 100w, because it was in my budget. The PPC line is the most impressive, and all the gloss poured on Orange is earned. Birch Plywood? Celestians, "crammed" in the tight cab. PERFECT! I could play thru the clean channel forever, Fender die-hard bows to the shimmer and the beef of the PPC212-OB! There isn't a room I can't cover. Reminds me of the first time I saw Orange; Wishbone Ash, Andy Powell playing through a head and ONE CAB? Day of Deep Purple, Marshall STACKS!! Never heard a sweeter sound, on chords and solos. andy painted murals with his Orange. Orange were $$ back then, as now, for a great REASON; they were better than the rest. Rock solid cabinet here. built to last. You could probably survive any cataclysm if you could just crawl into it!!! My Crush Pro has a new friend, and I think they have a beautiful future together. The 412 is a memory, but it took another ORANGE to unseat it from its lofty perch. I'm speechless and think the WOW factor should be SIX STARS!
