sound like Paul Kossoff!

sounds great through my 1960 lead 4x12 with greenbacks.

Sold my Tiny Terror

I could not be more impressed with this amp and cab. These amps really soar. I love the effects loop with my G system and the EQ is a nice upgrade from the Tiny Terror. I highly recommend this amp to any one who is looking for a low wattage amp with a effects loop.

I'll try to keep this short. I play lead electric on the weekends at a local church that plays modern praise and worship songs, ie (Chris Tomlin, Hillsong... etc... I used to own a Rockerverb 50 and have dearly missed it since I had to sell it. I tried other orange amps (Rocker 30, Tiny Terror, Dual terror, Dark Terror, Thunder 30) None of these seemed to fit right, I'd given up on Orange since I need an FX loop and it seemed they only put FX loops on their modern hi-gain style amps......Until the OR15 This looked to be just right, vintage orange flavor with plenty of gain (too much for me, I changed my preamp tubes to Jan-phillips 5751 to clean up the preamp section a bit) The OR15 reminds me a bit of the Rockerverb 50, harmonically rich, musical midrange and great low end presence and the highs stay present without being harsh. Overall, it's tone is extremely balanced but with Oranges typical fat harmonic midrange that I love. This amp can really sing. As the other reviewer stated, it doesn't have much clean headroom, but this is to be expected from a single channel orange amp. It does the cleanish bluesy breakup thing in spades and will do classic to hard rock and beyond no problem.

A Marshally Orange!

This is a classic hard rock amp that to my ears has a bit of vintage Marshall in it hehe. I own a 78' JMP 2203 and a DSL50 so I love classic Marshall tones...not modern. This amp crunches up very nicely and from noon on spits fire like a hot rodded 800 would. Good grief I'm having fun with this. The amps voicing is vintage to me and even though it has so much gain it still remains in that vein. I would say it will do 80s metal but for me that stuff isn't modern voiced saturation. More hard rock-ish. It has lots of useable gain and stays pretty defined. I have mine plugged into a 412 loaded with Greenbacks. I'm a blues, classic rock and hard rock player. This amp excels at this. I like my cleans rolled off from my crunch settings using guitar volume. This amp does that well. Otherwise the clean only is average and headroom little which suits me fine. Non issue. I prefer a little break up or a dirty clean. The amp will need to be biased if the power tubes are changed. It isn't cathode biased like the TT is. Not a problem for me cause I can bias my amps but those that won't will have to have a tech or someone who knows do it for them. I love playing this amp and I have some nice amps. I'm getting callouses on my callouses cause I won't leave it alone. It's not the best amp "evar" but it is fun as hell to play.

Orange Monster

Ok. I admit I liked Orange Amps the first day I seen some old 70's footage of some band and seen the orange setup. I usually play in the living room until I fill out the rest of the band. Ok. First I plugged into my orange 1x12 cab and plugged in my les paul studio 15 watt setting volume at 9oclock. all eq noon and gain at 1 oclock. Banged an open E power chord and was like wow!!!! Played around and was like this is not going back. Pulled out my Weber attenuator put the attenuator volume at 2, it goes to 10. I then bought the volume to 2 oclock and kept the gain at 1 oclock. WHOA!!!! The amp sounded like it was mad at me, roaring and trying to come out the speaker. It has that beast sound that I like. Do not underrate power tube distortion. It was loud, probably too loud for apt or sensitive neighbors with the attenuator on 2 but man!! If you are looking at this amp page, you know about Orange. They did not disappoint. Put effects thru the loop. No issues. No noise. I am digging this amp. I changed the V3 chinese 12ax7 to a tad 12at7. I feel it make the amp tighter. I also noticed on the board it says Jim Root Terror. I have not heard the Jim Root Terror but I take it that this is some modded Jim Root Terror with a different voicing. But all in all if you want want an amp to growl, bark, while you are rocking out . Look no further. Tone is there
