Our sound has always demanded a lot of versatility from our amps; anything from warm & responsive clean tones, to biting, synthetic octave distortion. Orange Amps are the only amps that can really deliver the range of sounds we require, while also the providing the reliability and quality we need while on tour.more
The 50W Orange Thunderverb 50 twin channel tube amp head offers class A/B performance with a foot-switchable attenuator, tube FX loop, and tube-driven reverb. The Tunderverb 50 tube amp head sports 2 clean/crunch/lead channels each with 3 gain stages. Channel A has the same 3-band EQ as the lead channel used on the Orange Rockerverb amps. Channel B has a shape control that scoops the mids and increases the bass and treble when turned up.
The Orange Thunderverb 50 amp head's footswitchable attenuator is great for those really loud lead breaks.
If you like the sound of the Thunderverb 200, but prefer the convenience of a smaller cranked 50W power amp, then the Orange Thunderverb 50 tube amp is for you.
Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
The beast has two channels and delivers 50W of powerfull awsomeness when crancked up!
More seriously, channel A has the classic british Orange sound with quite a lot of gain possibilities. The EQ works really well. If you like fat bass, roaring mids and spiky highs this one is for you! You can have a good "clean" tone by rolling the gain knob into the first gain stage and increasing the volume. (BTW the two channels have independant volume controls)
Channel B is more american(ish) typed. Because of the presence of a shape knob instead of a proper EQ you can either scoop your mids or make them really strong. This control is completely usable in my opinion. The only drawback is if you have long cables and no buffer you cannot kick the highs a bit. I personaly use a boost pedal to adjust it. (It adds a bit of tapdancing when playing live)
