OVERVIEW

A homage to the past, classic Orange looks and tone with modern technology.

Orange Amplification celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2008 with the issue of an extremely limited edition OR50H tube guitar amp. Due to overwhelming public demand, Orange Amplification has decided to re-introduce it.

In 1972 Orange launched an amp that defined their sound. It was dubbed the "Pics Only" due to the absence of any text, instead using pictures only on the front panel of the amp. The OR50H owes more than a nod to this vintage legend; from the method of its construction, to the blues and rock tone, even the cosmetics. Featuring a traditional single channel with a three-stage gain section, the real weapon in the OR50²s arsenal is the HF Drive control, which is two controls in one! As you turn the control clockwise you will hear the power amp presence increase while adding an extra dimension of power amp gain. Along with a foot-switchable master volume, this is truly one of the most versatile single channel amps ever created.

FEATURES
  • Single channel
  • Bass, Middle, Treble, HF Drive and Master Volume controles
  • Footswitchable Master Volume
  • 50W

    Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR50 Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This amp is so sweet and simple. I didn't have to do to much tweeking to get the sound I was looking for right out of the box. I really can't describe it any better other than just perfect tone. It excepts my pedals amazingly, I use a boss bd2w and it screams tone. Great clean tones with hard hitting crunch. I've owned a variety of amps from vox ac30, fender bassman 59 reissue, orange dual terror and now this or50 and it is the sound I have been looking for, for years. Extremely easy to use and the hf control just adds more clarity to your sound. I couldn't be more happy with this amp, if you are considering getting it, do it, you will be happy you did.

      Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR50 Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Awesome tube overdrive and distortion tones, and awesome clean tones. Excellent tone with or without pedals. Yes, this amp sounds so good, you could easily leave your effects board home if you want. This amp provides the legendary vintage Orange amp tone of 1970's, with some modern accouterments. HF drive can role off harsh high frequencies, or add presence. Additional outstanding feature, foot-switchable from master volume mode to non-master volume mode. My all time favorite amp.

        Comments about Orange Amplifiers OR50 Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I'm not going to lie - the first thing that caught my attention were its big black retro knobs. The OR series amps are pleasing to the eye and have a funky vibe going on that just works aesthetically with my band.

        As for the sound, it is glorious! 50 watts is just perfect for rock. If you want tons of clean chimey headroom, this amp may not be for you as it lends itself to wanting to get dirty. However, it can be clean sounding if you crank the vol attenuator clockwise and turn up the gain knob up to taste.

        My band plays progressive covers, original music, ska, post rock, punk, dub reggae, and everything in between. Teamed with some good stomp box pedals, the Orange tone reigns supreme.
