Great Old school Orange tone. Very happy with this amp and Guitar Center. This amp is all tube and the tone can be controlled noticeably with tube selection. All tho the stock JJs sounded just fine. The tube buffered effects loop is quiet and works fine with echo and re-verb and does not rob tone. A more vintage Orange tone as apposed to the Tiny Terror.But still plenty of gain on tap. Fat blues tone up through early Ozzy. Loud amp for its size,when in its sweet spot but get a good low volume tone also. Big amp tone in a small package.
I just recently picked up a OR15 Head at the Syracuse store. For me, it was refreshing to purchase the head still in its original double boxed shipping set up from the vender. I ran the head first through an Epiphone Valve Junior cabinet loaded with a Celestion V30. The head was focused an punchy. It gave me sounds from in your face distortion, when dimed, to chimey clean when the gain was at 20% and the master volume at 60%. I then ran the OR15 head straight into a second Epiphone Valve Junior cabinet loaded with a Celestion Greenback. This set up opened up a world of Orangey goodness. I play a Gibson Les Paul Traditional and this set up married extremely well together. After going through the paces with the Greenback, I hooked up some effect pedals ( a nessassary evil for gigging ). I ran the Les Paul into a Dunlop Wah, an MXR Script 90 and then into the head. Gain at 60%, bass and mids at 65%, treble at 45% and the master volume at 30%. I also ran an MXR Carbon Copy through the effects loop (I only utilize the effects when the song calls for it). I kept the head at the full 15 watts and ran it back into the Epiphone Valve Junior cab with the Greenback. I was in heaven. I tore into Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak and The Warrior like I recorded the album. I have also played the head through various cabinets loaded with:a Roland Vintage 12, Eminence Lady Luck, Jensen C12n and a Mesa Boogie Dual Rect 2x12 loaded with two Celestion Greenbacks. Each one sang! The 15/7 watt flexibility allows you to crank up without disturbing your neighbors and swap out cabs with different rated speakers. It is light weight and looks cool. The minimal features keeps the guitar signal strong and toneful while remaining easy to operate. I am happy with the purchase and I believe that if you are interested in the full scope of 70's guitar, this amp is for you.
Thank you, Orange. After trying everything from Mesas and Marshalls (great for the stage, but no sweet spot at home volume), to modelers (meh) and even custom-made heads that promise tube goodness at sane volume levels (but still don't deliver), the OR15 is finally, FINALLY, the head that actually does heavy rock at home, and does it well (Led Zep to Van Halen to Crue and beyond). The preamp voicing is simple and effective and responds as it should even at home volume. (It's a loud 15 watts too, so band practice volume is there if you need it.) Aanother thing that sets the OR15 apart? There's more gain here than you need. What a concept, right? Set to 11:30 or noon, it's perfect for EVH. Wanna do Crue or Maiden or Nirvana? Push it up a few notches. The best part is, it's true, juicy, tasty, harmonic-filled ROCK gain, not ultra-modern antiseptic, might-as-well-be-digital nu-gain. There are plenty of other amps that do the nu-gain, modelers too. But this is the first truly satisfying, tube ROCK head I've found for home use. So if you're tired of so called "mini" heads that still need to be cranked up to "divorce papers" volume to sound good and other mini-heads whose gain maxes out at Skynyrd and ZZ Top, try the OR15. For me, it's replaced amps that cost twice the price and more. Again, thank you Orange. You guys rock, both literally and figuratively.
What a fantastic amp! I'm running mine through an Orange PPC 212CB. The responsiveness is amazing and the gain is incredible. The first thing I noticed was any slight movement of any eq knob made noticable differences in tone and sound. There are no "dead areas" in any of the knobs. Second, this amp responds well to touch. Even on mid to high gain settings at a medium volume, if I soften up my attack on the strings, the amp maintains a decent volume while cleaning up the tone. If I play harder, the tone dirties up. I know this is characteristic of most tube amps. However, compared to my other amps, the Orange seems to be a lot more responsive. I've rid my board of one overdrive pedal because I can get the grit I want out of this amp by just a change of string attack. This amp is punchy, too. There is no "flub" at high gain settings. It stays tight and full. The fullness of this amp is what really gets me. I mentioned the gain earlier, but the clean on this amp is so full. It surrounds my room and really brings out the warmth of my LP's. This is a must have for any tone-hound or minimalist that wants to work the amp vice pedals. I'm certain the marriage of this head's tone with any decent cab will bring a smile on your face while the volume parts your hair.
This amp cranks. My other amps are orange ad30, marshall jcm 800 and 1987 plexi. The or15 is much easier to bring to gigs. Works great for the band I'm in. I run this head through an orange 412 or open back 212. Great little tube head that won't break the bank.
This amp is evil. It seems to be set up on a heavily modified Tiny Terror base, and I say heavily modified as there is a 12AT7 tube for the effects loop with an extra 12AX7 in the preamp stage. 2 EL84s give this thing the juice! But, the whole amp is given a proper enclosure and there is a mids level adjustment knob thrown in. This amp sounds superb even without my fuzz box attached. I suppose this is because this thing has even more gain than the Tiny Terror I traded in for yesterday at my local Guitar Center. I took the thing home, plugged in, and annoyed my neighbors for hours, I'm sure. Stop reading. I'm finished talking about this product. If you've not been convinced that this is THE amp, then further discussion will be fruitless.
I've owned many amps through the years, and this amp is the best sounding amp I ever owned. I'm super happy with it. For those who are looking for a tube amp to play in bedroom levels, this is the one to have. This amp is not like a Marshall that you really need to push the power tubes in order to sound good. With the OR15, you can put on 15 watt, set the volume to 2, and still get some great tones out of it.
i played this amp in the store and didn't want to leave it!!! it was one of the best amp sounds i have ever heard for an amp under $1000. definitely worth the money! buying the amp in a couple of days so its mine to keep. it is definitely good orange quality they are known for!
Just tried an Or 15. Great amp. Plugged in through a ppc 212 speaker cab and a les paul. Awesome sounds. The clean is warm and mello. The overdrive is what makes this amp though. It's so amazing! Warm, articulate, and hits you in the face, with plenty of gain on tap and an excellent 3 band eq. It is loud! The only tones you could get for bedroom volumes are clean and a good classic rock. Any more gain and it gets fuzzy. A good overdrive pedal could fix that though. Outside of bedroom levels this amp seems suited for many areas, and it can always be miced up. Also there is an fx loop to run any reveb or delay etc. This amp does many styles of music very well. If simplicity is your thing, check it out!
