ROCKER 15

Online

THE AMP FOR ALL OCCASIONS
Capable of 0.5, 1, 7 or 15 Watts of output the Rocker 15 is an extremely portable combo that moves seamlessly from the home, to the studio, to the stage. Finally, a small, two channel, bedroom-friendly all-valve amp that you can legitimately gig!

With the Rocker 15 set wide open, smaller venues are comfortably taken care of despite the amps miniature footprint. Thanks to a custom Voice of the World Gold Label speaker and beefy transformers, the Rocker 15 has a remarkably potent delivery which takes full advantage of its EL84 output section. Even when scaling back the power, the amps tone stays fat and full, oozing warm valve compression and saturation without disturbing the neighbours.

Clever options aside, the Rocker 15 has real character - a twin channel design with a twist. The Natural channel is a purist's dream with just a single knob: Volume. Finely balanced and supremely playable, this channel is perfectly voiced to bring out the 'natural' sound of the instrument under your fingers (or the pedals under your feet). The Dirty channel is a more familiar affair with controls for Gain, Volume and a three band EQ section. Both channels are very sensitive to touch and playing dynamics, making Rocker 15 very versatile despite its straightforward, player-friendly layout.

The amp also features a proper valve driven effects loop for total purity from input to output. So, whether you need a rig for low-volume practising, recording, or to be heard on the club circuit, the shape-shifting Rocker 15 will show itself to be the amp for every occasion.

It’s a very portable 1x10 combo, weights 31lbs, has 2 channels and switchable 15/7/1w all tube. It is exactly as they advertise it. It can do just about any genre you like, from jazz to modern metal. The clean channel just has a volume knob and that’s perfect for me. The dirty channel rips as good as any other Orange amp I’ve owned. Don’t let the 10” speaker fool you. It sounds huge! Big, thick, and full sounding.

Owned for a few months now. Overdrive channel is very aggressive with the gain around 3 but maxed out, it becomes too muddy and mushy. Orange amps tend to have this very dark character about them but this very present mid range sound, making it a very distinctive sound. The clean channel sounds very good for only having a single volume knob with no adjustable EQ. I run an OCD with the tone switch in LP mode and it sounds great, really hear the true character of the amp. The single 10 inch speaker isn?t able to achieve the sort of bass response I was hoping for, even with the bass knob dimed. As the speaker broke in, it definitely became better but leaves much to be desired. After one of the JJ 12ax7s became microphonic (I understand that tubes can go bad at any point but only being played at bedroom levels for maybe 20 hours, this shouldn?t have been an issue) I did a complete tube swap. The stock JJ?s sound good but once you start playing around with other EL84s and 12ax7s, the tone of the amp really opens up. I would recommend replacing all JJ 12ax7s with Tungsol 12ax7s and changing the JJ EL84s with the TAD EL84s which have a much better bass response. The switchable wattage is a nice touch but I leave it in the full 15 watt mode as this provides the most bass and tone in my opinion without sounding tiny and fizzy.

Closest StoreFredericton, New Brunswick
I picked one of these up on sale some months ago at the Fredericton location, after significant online research. I didn't really check it out at the store as I mainly wanted to get it home and crank it. The build quality on this is excellent, truly not a flaw to be found inside or out after having had it for several months. I haven't had a single issue either through the stock speaker or with an extension cab (Traynor DHX112). The natural channel with a decent set of humbuckers takes you up to some mean ACDC tones if you crank it, or really most any classic or reasonable hard rock. Zeppelin, Rush? Yes. With the EQ set to noon across, the volume maxed, and the gain at one notch below noon the dirty channel matches the Natural channel. Bring it up past noon and you're easily in the gain range of early Metallica, and still with plenty more on tap. Just EQ as needed to shape your sound, and you'll probably find what you're looking for. The EQ is very responsive. This amp isn't going to give you crystal clean jazz sounds, and it also isn't going to give you super tight, low metal sounds either. It'll get pretty close though, and anything in between is just waiting to be dialed in. With the stock 10" speaker you could jam comfortably with a full band or a drummer. If you're going to play out with it you'll want to push more air though, so I'd consider an extension cab or the head version that's now been released. Overall: great sounding and extremely versatile amp. Great for an at home player or someone who wants to jam with a couple of friends. You'll have the most fun if you can crank this up. The Natural channel maxed at max power is truly an experience worth the cost of entry, but the power switching means you can get pretty close to that at volumes that won't hurt the neighbors (unless you're in an apartment).

This amp is so versatile I couldn't believe it. The Bedroom/Headroom feature works wonders for jamming alone or with a band. The simple controls also make this amp so easy to get killer tones. I play rock, blues, metal and jazz and this does it all. I do wish it was a little more affordable but then again, it's Orange and you get what you pay for.
