Classic Orange styling and tone.

The Orange OR100H is the first OR model to feature two channels and delivers up to 100W of incredible Orange tone making it the crown jewel of the OR series. Drawing on the heritage of the original and iconic ‘Pics Only’ launched in 1972, the new OR100H has taken the best of the original features in terms of tone, construction and design, then uses today’s expertise to create a guitar amp of epic proportions.

The OR100H incorporates for the first time on an ‘OR’ series amp; twin channels, as well as a tube driven FX loop, foot-switchable boosts and independent EQ. The output power can be scaled between 100W, 70W, 50W and 30w, plus there is a choice of clean and dirty channels. As well as being one of the most versatile and dynamic amps Orange has ever made, the OR100H delivers a classic tone that is unique to Orange; a sound that so many famous artists describe as ‘the holy grail’ of tones!

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR100 100W Dual Channel Tube Guitar Head:

    I recently purchased this amp after having issues with my previous one (an Ampeg Gemini 1969). I got it for a few reasons: durability, sound, and the ability to notch the wattage down.

    This amp is one of the best British sounding amps I've ever heard. It really roars, and the gain is very versatile and goes from a light bark to huge saturation. Its a very characteristic distortion that sounds great from lead to rhythm. I watched a lot of online videos of this amp, and something that worried me was it seemed a bit muddy. Trust me, its not. For some reason the internet videos do not properly show how punchy this amp is. You can feel it in your chest, and its clarity even in high gain is top notch.

    My only criticism is that its a bit too dark. Don't get me wrong, it sounds great, but in order to get the cut you want, you need to have the treble on 10, and significantly ramp down the bass. I don't understand why they make it with so much bass. On both the clean channel and the gain channel I have the treble on 10 and the bass around 6.

    The clean channels clarity is very very good. With the proper eq, using either pickups results in smooth and detailed guitar work. This is a very british clean sound though. Don't expect Fender twang.

    I love this amp more than anything else I've ever played through. It responds to your touch perfectly, and if you ramp it down to 30 watts, the tube bias makes it respond more like a class A amp than a class A/B. This amp is special, and I'd recommend it for Hard Rock, Classic Rock, and even Indie or metal. It is nothing short of a work of art.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR100 100W Dual Channel Tube Guitar Head:

    fairly versatile - good clean sound - *great* overdriven sound with good range. Extremely loud, but can sound good at lower volumes. Only amp I've seen made after 1990 in which I decided to keep the stock tubes.

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR100 100W Dual Channel Tube Guitar Head:

    This amp is quite the specimen. I've been searching for an Orange to purchase for quite some time and found the glory days OR80/120s to be far too loud and unwieldy for smaller venues. Also, they don't mesh well with pedal fx. The rockerverbs and thunderverbs were heavy and dark, but both models' eq sections did not provide me with the ideal dynamic range for my style of music and the excessive gain made the amps difficult and finicky to dial in my choice grit on the fly. The ad series had the hospitable eq and near perfect gain, but lacked serious headroom and an effects loop. I'd been eying the OR50, but once again headroom and effects kept me off the beach. This bad boy dropped, so I brought my guitar and pedalboard in for a test drive.

    Rarely have I had as much fun windmilling chords and journeying through a brief history of rock in the loud room.
    This amp is beefy and nails that signature super middy orange tone. Having owned this amp for a month, now, it is fully gigable in smaller venues despite it's wattage thanks to the output reduction circuits (though let's be real, you'll probably still want to mic that combo instead of lugging a 70 lb head and cab). The cleans are NOT fender cleans, they are not chiming and sparkly but dark and very THICK with lots of mid harmonic resonance. The gain channel has a very dynamic eq with the bass affecting the mid and treble and vice versa. This can make the eq a little difficult to dial in that "perfect" setting on the fly, but on the other hand you cannot make the amp sound thin or tinny and virtually all of the eq settings are well voiced and organic. The gain itself has that orange loose creaminess to it, though I find it rather excessive for my needs after 2 o clock, though this guy can move from Beatles breakup to doom (if you throw a little fuzz on top) across the spectrum. The clean channel is awesome for fx, taking overdrive, distortion, compression, modulation and time effects like a boss. The dirty channel is a little more fussy and sounds quite different with analog and digital effects. The boosts for the amp are surprisingly useful and despite the online demos, far more apparent than they appear on youtube. Amp sounds awesome with humbuckers and single coils, so bring both. I used an American strat, Gibson CS SG, and a home made tele with PAFs (the drop tuna) for my rig in this review.

    This is not a Mesa Mark V, it is not a chameleon that can impersonate any amplifier in history. This is a sonically versatile, uniquely voiced amp utilizing el34s for mostly low mids instead of high mids (say Marshall). The amp is monstrously thick and I recommend open back cabs with v30s for a wall of sound.
    If you're looking for a single very dark-voiced amplifier with the output versatility to move between any practice and venue setting, look into this amp, though I STRONGLY advise you try it out before you make the purchase, as there is not much to compare this amp to, tonally speaking. Best I can do is, it sounds like a Matamp Green that is less dark, with more fluid gain, and a completely different eq. Haha. Not very much help, is it? Just try one out.
    Cheers, mate.
