In my opinion it is one of the best sounding amps lately, even compared to the custom shop in the video, I like the OR100 better. :thumbsup:

Gotta say I agree with you! I think it's the best amp we've made in the past decade as far as versatility.

The GC near me is running an Orange product demo on Aug 29. I can't wait to hear it in person.

Just got my OR100 from Brad. Sick amp! Super grindy and aggressive, a real fun amp to play. Orange hit a home run with these things IMO.

Here's a little cam clip I made for a friend so he could hear it.

Whoa, I've never heard an Orange sound like THAT. What we're settings/gain and pickups?

lol, they are gonna ban me for posting that. :lol: :LOL:
I have to admit, Orange hadn't crossed my radar for the tones I'm after. After hearing fluff's vid though, I knew I had to try one. Happy I did, definitely not what I had previously thought orange was capable of. The gain was around 2:00, lead boost and global boost off, and I'm hitting the front end with a clean boost. The guitar is a stock 2012 LP Standard, with the stock BB Pro pickups.

haha, you would have a blast with this amp Chris. It's different from everything in your stable right now. :rock:

thanks man, definitely worth checking out, it's a wicked fun amp. I just used a ZoomHD, so it has the built in stereo mics. I wanted to show a friend how it sounded, and I've found the zoom does a pretty good representation of what the amp sounds like in the room.

Does the OR have the same compressed/squishy feel (in a good way) that the Rockerverb has?

It's definitely got a unique feel to it. I wouldn't really call it squishy, but it's got a nice bounce to the way it responds. Real sensitive to how hard you are hitting the strings, and has a nice liquid feel for single note runs. Hard for me to compare, as I've never owned a rockerverb.

I like this amp but in the end, it seemed like too much of a metal amp. I was hoping for more versatility since I no longer play metal.
I ended up liking the Fryette SigX, Mesa Royal Atlantic and Marshall JVM410HJS Satriani amp more and ended up going for the JVM Satriani to add to the Bogner, Mesa and PWE mix. :)

Is the OR100 made in China? I think I prefer a Rockerverb 100

Ive had both the Rockerverb 50, and the OR100 at the same time.
The Rockerverb is a killer amp, more modern than than the OR100.
The OR100 is thicker, more organic, and more versatile than the Rockerverb.
For what I do the OR100 fits the bill better.

Interesting since I see so many guys saying that the OR100 is the Orange metal amp!

A fine sounding amp. Lots of bottom-end, and tight as they come.

interesting because i have heard the exact opposite on some other forums. specifically those who play ERG's. i am playing a 7 string in A# and i love my Rockerverb 100 MKII ...just wish it had a presence control. i want just a little bit less so i have been using a BBE Sonic Maximizer as my presence control... was looking to dump on the Orange for a Mesa Road King this weekend but i don't think i can give up on Orange. may just buy another amp in spring in addition to my Rockerverb ...or maybe an OR100 as well? because that amp sounds pretty F'n awesome!

Made by the same company (in England) that made Cornford amplifiers. They may also have a MIC line, I don't know? The Orange transformers come from the same custom builder as Cornford.
