Looking for some input on Orange

Hey UG

I've been thinking more and more towards my high gain amp options, it won't be long before I start looking for one. I have a very deep love for the JCM800, I just feel it's a very well-rounded amp that can come in handy for a working player who needs to cover a lot of things. I don't need a lot of specific metal tones, just a great sounding gain channel. A while ago I was considering looking into Orange but that faded away at some point. What would be a solid choice for an Orange head? An amp like this wouldn't be for gigging as much as it would be for session work, I'm not currently playing in any groups that demand a lot of natural amp gain. I do know that I wanna get an Orange 2x12 cab with the v30s. I am mostly a strat player but an LP is a must for some things.

Thanks

Look at the AD30, Rocker 30 and OR50. I would only look at the TH30/100 Thunderverb and Rockerverb amps if you need lots of gain.

this might seem funny but to be honest i don't even know the big Orange players anymore. I remember years ago watching a rig tour from the guy in Alkaline Trio who was using one and that's when I started considering it, but anyways...

I take it those are 30/50/100 watts? I haven't put much thought into wattage yet either. I do remember liking the Rockerverbs though, thanks.

Yes most are 30/50 and 100 watts, but they do make a 200 watt thunderverb if you need to be that guy

I find Orange to be awesome amps, tone wise they have that british sound that i'm so in love with. (I know i have a mesa, it's the exact opposite lol). They are very well made and i find them to be tone beasts. Also very versatile.

If you like Orange amps you should really check out Matamp. Matamp is the company that originaly designed and built Orange amps.

If your in the USA also look at Electric Amp. This is the USA branch of Matamp and they make the exact same models.

i use an orange OR50H, great amp. it is only one channel, but if you are planning on doing studio work then that should be just fine.

it does have plenty of gain on tap, but it also has very nice cleans and great breakup. excellent amp. frankly, i tried out the AD30 and the rocker 50 and i thought the OR50H had quite a bit more to offer (outside of the multi-channel aspect).

but also +1 to matamp, those amps are cool.

they seem to have gone on an sponsorship binge

omar rodriguez uses them too, he's not on the list.
