THE OR15H - CLASSIC ORANGE STYLING AND TONE

In 1972 Orange launched a British guitar amp that defined their sound. It was dubbed the Pics Only. Orange Amplification celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2008 with the issue of an extremely limited edition amp: the OR50H. Due to overwhelming public demand, Orange Amplification have decided to re-introduce it while adding a 15 and 7 watt version the OR15H to the 2012 OR Series. Only pictures are used on the front panel of the amp. The OR15H owes more than a nod to this vintage legend; from the method of its construction, the blues rock tone, and of course its desirable looks.

Bought today, May 14, 2019, Kingston, Ontario The Orange OR15H is a wonderful amp for anyone who wishes for a straight plug in, old style, tube head of low to medium wattage (15W/7W). The amplifier offers a wide range of sounds from clean tube sound, up to the saturated sustain Orange tube amps stand out from the crowd. It isn't a metal amp though, with a good pedal, I guess it is possible. This head offers limited features (no reverb and no second channel) though it has a very good effect loop. If one likes old school guitar volume to achieve different shades, this amp is made for such players in mind. I only gave it a 4 since it lacks a reverb. On the other hand, a traditional (and old) guitarist (as I am) doesn't miss it much. For "bedroom" playing, the 7W option works beautifully. Hooked to a good cabinet such as the one I own (a Traynor 1X12 with a 25W Celestion greenback) or any other ones from Orange, Traynor, Marshall, and more offers great tones. I haven't tried it through a 2X12 or 4X12 yet. The Orange vertical 2X12 would work perfectly, I suspect, for someone playing larger venues. Of course, with today's sound systems, the same amp miked could fill any hall (no need for 100W and full stack anymore however, they indeed look good). I tried the amp at the store through an Orange 1X12 cab that sounded very good. With the assistance of the excellent staff at the store, many electrics were tried from an Ibanez Mikro with 2 hubs to a Gibson Les Paul Studio. All guitars with a few control adjustments sounded very good. I truly enjoyed all the guitars through the head with humbucker-equipped guitars. Even at max gain, the sound remained great. A Les Paul Jr. double cutaway offered wonderful Leslie West type growl. Please note that the higher gain settings past 2 O'Clock will generate a typical single coil hum. As usual, L&M staff at the Kingston store was wonderful. Thanks, guys!

The number one feature of this amp is it's sound. It sounds absolutely awesome. Of all my amps, this one is my favorite sound. It's got the effects loop which is awesome and you can plug it into a few different combos of speaker cabinets. That being said, it has some draw backs. The biggest being that it's only a single channel head. If you don't need any clean channel stuff, then you should be ok.

Exactly as expected, crazy good vintage madness. Warm clean jazz tones thru screaming filthy dirty gain and everything in between. Just like my Micro Terror, EQ adjustability is refined and highly effective. Well constructed, quality materials, not too big not too small, and if you are in search of a nostalgic dead simple no frills circuit with equally dead simple adjustability where tone matters most, this is it. I can't walk away from this amp. p.s?.yes, it can play LOUD if the recipe calls for it.

I tried this thing out through an Orange 2x12 closed back with V30's and it was beyond impressive. This thing was loud and crunchy! Loved it for rhythm and some pretty sweet lead tones. A very diverse amp for a number of styles. The price point is a bit much in my opinion but then again it's an Orange and you get what you pay for.

I bought this amp based on u tube reviews and I liked the colour, fired it up and my jaw dropped, massive punch for 15 watts I was amazed. Ran it through a 4/12 with vintage 30's what tone.Nice clean, takes pedals well , set it for crunch and boost with your favorite stomp box, liquid fire.
