The Orange OR50 Tube Guitar Amp isn't a head; it's a monolith in the world of amplification, an archetype of of what defines one of the most popular company's sound. Designed after their breakthrough "No Pics" introduced in 1972, the OR50 is built in a traditional single-channel layout with a three-stage gain circuit that has plenty of tricks up its sleeve. Sporting a nuanced three-band EQ for carving out your sounds, the real star of the show is the HF Drive control which simultaneously commands your power and presence.
