The all-new Orange Dual Dark Series is a range of high-end dual channel amps. Put simply, these amps showcase Orange Amplification at their most innovative. The new amps build on the brand's reputation for creating the ultimate British guitar tone. Bringing a new dimension of sound that delivers potent combinations of tone.

The 100W Dual Dark features footswitchable attenuators and Orange's signature low-impedance effects-loop design. And, for added versatility, output on the Dual Dark 100 can be switched to 100, 70, 50 or 30W. It comes standard EL34s fitted, but other tetrode valves can be used when biased correctly by a technician.

The models have a completely new voicing for Channel A, different to anything else in the Orange Amp range yet still true to their heritage. Channel B is has the voicing of the Dark Terror tone. Both channels can go from clean through to crunch at lower gain levels and offer four stages of gain.

The Dual Dark amps have been built with state-of-the-art components backed by Orange's ever-evolving design, and deliver the biggest amount of gain available in the history of the company.

Amazing product, just wish I had more time with it


from Rochester

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Dark 100W High-Gain Guitar Head:

I own the Orange Dark terror, the 15 watt version and I absolutely love that head. A friend of a friend owns this head, and he went out of town for about 3 months, and let MY friend borrow the head. Well my buddy plays bass so he let me hold onto it for a little bit. Man this thing just got passed around! anway... I plugged it into my Marshall 1960 4x12 cab that usually plays my dark terror and WOWEEEEE man I wish I could afford this head. It sounds so amazing that I almost felt guilty being able to use it. It is voiced very similar to the Dark Terror except it cranks alot louder, and has a bit thicker and meaner of a tone. The EL34s are a bit clearer sounding than the 84s in the DT. The cleans on this thing sound just fantastic. I think for 2500 bucks both channels should have full bass mid and treble controls.... I mean you can get almost anything for that much. The fit and finish on this thing is absolutely beautiful.

The darkest of all of orange


from Charlotte, north carolina

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Dark 100W High-Gain Guitar Head:

This head is a masterpiece. It weighs about 55 lbs. What's cool about it is that as opposed to other 100 watt amps. It can be switched down to 30 watts for smaller gigs like a bar or a nightclub. Normally small gigs won't allow 100 watt amps because of the power, but this thing can play in such a has 4 tubes in it and 4 stages of gain to make it sound filthy. The attenuator is an excellent component since it can lower the volume without lowering the settings. This head has 2 channels, so one can be for distortion and the other can be for clean play. Channel A is the dual dark channel for this head. Channel B is a dark terror channel and is like a more powerful version of the 15 watt dark terror from Orange. I have had this amp for 6 months and it is very reliable and awesome. I have a 400 watt 4x12 speaker hooked up to this head and it looks world class. The head has two half switches; one in the back to switch from 4 to 2 tubes and another in the front to half the power. All in all this amp can go from 100, 70, 50, or 30 watts. World class metal musicians like slayer or metallica would like this. 100 watts also makes this good for a big venue. In terms of power and limits this head has none that I know of. The dual dark that I've had still looks and plays like new after 6 months.

Comments about Orange Amplifiers Dual Dark 100W High-Gain Guitar Head:

This is a great head, however if you really want the best out of it, I found that using an OCR overdrive pedal with it really opens this head up to monster tone. I think its over priced, but Orange is never cheap. I also think there should have been a reverb option on it for the money you pay, and throw in the foot switch. The head is very heavy in weight.
