Just as the title says, it's the best way I can describe the tone of this amplifier. I also love how this thing looks and how it functions- simple and straight to the point without having too many bells and whistles because it doesn't need to. It's built like a rock- heavier than I thought it'd be- it's durable, reliable, and needs little to no maintenance.

I have owned many amps over the last 30 years, most of them tube amps, I play mostly hard rock and old school metal( think Ozzy the Randy years) I'm in two rock giging rock bands now, This is one of the best sounding ,most dependable amps I have ever owned, it works perfect using the 4 cable method, I will never go back to a tube again AAAA++++ amp

I've owned this amp for a good year or so, during the holidays I picked up a 1st gen Rockerverb 50 and the difference is stunning. For a slightly darker almost more death metal or boogie sounding drive channel this is pretty decent, it's more capable for leads then the JJ 6V6s in the Rockerverb Mk1, as those need a lot more help to sing and be heard. However, and this is a big one, the drive channel in the Crush Pro doesn't like heavy clipping going into it, pushing extra distortion, boost or overdrive can cause the low end to clip out and become seriously unnatural. If you're looking to craft the seriously high-gain tones you can achieve with an orange tube head with generous amounts of boost and such in front of it.. you'll come out with a sound that rivals a cookie crumble in comparison to a real orange head. Don't listen to the bozos who wanna tell you the solid state is on the same level.. if you're into stoner/doom metal, this amp will not do it justice, the clean channel with fuzz works better, but then there is probably a clean Fender amp you can find that'd do that job much better on the used market for a better buck. The inclusion of reverb is nice, but not amazing. Old rock tones also come alive through the real deal. I'm not really a fan of the Orange sound on it's own. so this amp doesn't do it for me when the rockerverb can be taken up 4 notches and achieve a grindy bonecrushing tone with just some compression and an aggressive boost. I also find Orange in any flavour I've tried isn't very nice with effects pedals and as much as I enjoy the sound I get, these amps feel like they hold me back. Should be noted I've also tried V30s, Swamp Thangs, Texas Heats, T-75s, Greenbacks.. And a few tweaked Greenbacks/clones (which I seem to prefer across the board, clean to dirty) Quality is also questionable.. I've had the amp go all weird a few times and require me to turn it off then back on.. my 15 year old tube head is still just truckin' along.. as unstable as tubes can be..

I have played guitar for 35 years. I have played semi-professionally, for at least 25. This is the best value I've ever had in any amplifier purchase. This is the best Solid state amp I've ever used. And this amp is on a par with or exceeds many tube amps I've owned or used. This is an absolutely responsive instrument voice. It has piles of headroom and will drive 2 full size/full load 4x12 cabs effortlessly. I play hard rock, blues-metal, and other heavy genres. This amp is capable in all those areas, with a distinctly Orange personality. Also worthy of praise, is the clean channel, which is capable of jazz tones, as well as being gently pushed into breakup with an OD pedal or hot bridge pickup. This amp also has a great reverb feature. versatile, musical and nicely voiced. I run this into both an Orange PPC-412 and a Marshall 1960B cabinet. However, the master volume control enables practice volumes and use through a 1x12 too. It is my very favourite amp these days. Pure satisfaction.

I have had a line 6, a marshall 5210 and a marshall dsl15c before I had this Orange, and let me tell you this Orange blows them away. It's simple to use, a lot of people mistake it for a tubed amp. The controls are just reverb, volumes and bass middle and treble for each channel. The reverb is great. It is digital (just the reverb) but it gives you three different options. Plate, hall, and spring with the adjustable knob obviously. I was surprised with the amount of reverb you could get out of this amp. I've used it in the studio a couple times and to perform and it's been holding up great. Couldn't be happier. Definitely recommend this to just about anybody. Good cleans, great dirty sounds and everything in between.
