The Orange OR100 is the new top-of-the-line for the OR series. We’re talking two channels, up to 100 watts of power (switchable to 70, 50, or 30 watts), a tube FX loop, footswitchable boost, and more!
On the AC/DC DVD bootleg "Plug me In" you can actually see that Angus Young and Malcolm use a Orange OR100 on the songs "Live Wire" and "Can I Sit Next You Girl" on the Super Pop/Rollin Bolan show, London, July 1976. On Youtube the video isn't no longer available maybe due to copyright infrignment. The most accurate video that i found is from a Promo, where the playback is obvious. If you have the DVD check out that songs that i mention on the post.more
“A while back I happened to borrow Orange gear from my Old Man Gloom bandmate Nate Newton (who also plays Orange in his other bands, Converge and Doomriders), and later from Japanese tour mates Boris. In both cases I didn’t know what to expect never having played any Orange gear before and was pleasantly surprised at the depth and immensity of their sound. Being focused on the heavy end of the musical spectrum, I’ve found Orange gear offers the dynamism and power I need for the ideal guitar sound.”more
JON DAVIS OF CONAN “I’ve been using some excellent vintage amps for several years, including some old Orange heads. I wanted to buy some modern amps that give me the tone and warmth of the vintage heads I have become accustomed to. I’ve used several modern Orange heads at festivals and these have included the Thunderverb 200, the OR50 and OR100. I was initially curious about the sound and then became pretty much hooked on them. They have all the warmth of the older amps I like, but none of the reliability issues.”more
Just got it in a sale from a big music shop chain in mexico for 1000usd and think is one of my smartest purchases, this thing sound great for almost every genre, im more of a mild gain guy and im loving the sounds but more than that the cleans as tjey have lot of headroom for pedals even in 30w mode. Even if you are looking for hard rock sunds this thing can make it (not much heavy of metal) and with the switchable options of boost you dont need more than a good reverb and the modulation pedals of your choice. No distorsion pedals needed at las you can get a tbe screamer but no more than that is needed. A shame is discontinued
Now this was an expensive one over a grand but as stated it’s literally the best amp ever and I have owned allot of amps, Mesa boogie, fender, Marshall even a kemper and this is the best.
