NAMM 2012: Orange OR50H Guitar Amp Reissued, OR15H Launched

Orange OR50H Guitar Amp Reissued
NAMM 2012: Orange OR50H Guitar Amp Reissued, OR15H Launched
The Orange OR50H Guitar Amplifier has been reintroduced for the NAMM Show 2012, alongside a smaller OR15H Amp model. The OR50H was first introduced in a very limited run in 2008 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Orange Amplification company. Due to huge public demand, Orange are reintroducing this model at the NAMM show. The OR50H is heavily indebted to the original 1972 amp that defined their sound. Without any text on the body, this amp became known as the "Pics Only" - the construction, tone and cosmetics of the 1972 amp have been closely followed for the OR50H. There is a traditional single channel with a three stage gain section, with an added HF Drive control. Turning this control clockwise increases the presence of the power amp, while adding something new to the gain. The amp features 2 x EL34 valves, as well as 2 x 12AX7, and a foot switchable master volume. The OR15H follows the same trajectory as the OR50H, delivering vintage Orange tone and Pics Only styling in a 15 Watt Class A guitar amp.
