Dynamic with brutal simplicity
I've wanted an Orange since the day I saw one. Then I actually got this little guy and will use Orange for life.
The clean channel has so much headroom that I can totally see a large number of people using this solely for clean tones w/ pedals. But alas, the dirty channel is sooooo dark and swollen that I can't help but mess with it forever. I use this every weekend to gig with and I get many compliments about my setup. I used this with the Orange 412 CRUSH PRO and I'm rolling with unlimited amount of BOOM.
The tone knob, as simple as it is, is extremely dynamic. Never have I seen a single knob do so much with a simple twist to the left or the right. More gain than anybody could EVER want on standby is also included. As you've heard, these are made like tanks and solid/dense. Brutal simplicity in the controls means there's no wrong way to dial in a tone. I wouldn't change a thing about this amp and hats off to Orange to allow their products to be made outside of England, with the same attention to detail, to help make these guys more affordable.
