Incredible...

ChrisR, 17.02.2017
I originally purchased this amp thinking it would make a good home practice amp and I'd buy an all-valve Orange head later to take into the studio and on tour (I now also own a Dual Terror but this little beast still gets regular outings).

What can I say? It sounds great even when you forget the size, price AND the fact that it's not even all-valve. It sounds simply unbelievable when you take those things into consideration.

I've used it in the studio a lot and it's always sounded great (clean, crunchy or just cranked loud for hard rock sounds) and it takes pedals very well too - I use it a lot with a Maxon OD808 in front but it responds very well to boosters and overdrives in general (and the effects loop works great). The one thing I'd prefer would be a tone knob rather than the shape knob, but that's just my preference.

I have also taken it on tour (being sick of schlepping heavy amps) and the laughter that came from the other band members quickly turned to shock and awe. It can easily drive a 4x12 cab and is absolutely up to touring. Absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants something lightweight that sounds good and won't break the bank.

Little beast

Gorshi, 25.10.2018
I just love this small amp. It is compact, but loud as hell. Plays superb and it is a really high gain beast for its size. I use it at home with PPC108 and also sometimes as a practise amp with my band with PPC112. If you don?t care much about clean sound and your go to way is gain, gain and gain, this little Orange is your choice. Add an overdrive pedal and you can shred from heavy rock to grind core.
