Orange OR100 - New Twin Channel Amp
In time for Winter NAMM 2013, Orange Amps introduces their latest top-of-the-line model, the twin channel amplifier OR100.
The OR100 is the first amp from the OR series to have two channels and it delivers a staggering 100 watts of Orange tone.
This amp is inspired by the original "Pics Only" amps launced in 1972. It follows the same intuitive and straightforward controls, as well as features when it comes to its tone, construction and design. However to make it sound larger and more powerful, Orange employed the latest in tube technology. Like their other tube amps, the OR100 utilizes their experience with valve technology to produce that distinctive Orange tone, in a more powerful and versatile package.
The most notable feature of this amp is its twin channel, which is the first time ever seen within the OR series. The clean and dirty channels add versatility and make the amp an efficient tool for serious guitarists. It also comes with a tube driven FX loop, foot-switchable boosts and independent EQ controls that further improve the practicality of this amplifier.
Another nifty feature of the OR100 is its scalable output power, letting you tone down your volume while still getting great tones, depending on the venue of your gigs. You can switch between 100, 70, 50 and even as low as 30 watts - which gives you a wide range of volume and tone combination to choose from.Specifications:
