So I've played pretty much all the modern Orange amps except for the OR100 and for a while the Rockerverb MKII has been my favorite, but today I AB'ed it with a Custom Shop AD50 and the AD50 sounded much better. More raw, open, nuanced, etc. So my question is how does the OR100 compare to the custom shop Oranges? Is it as good? Is it more compressed like the Rockerverb? Also, how does the AD50 compare to vintage oranges like the OR120?

The OR100 sits somewhere between the Rockerverb and Thunderverb, IMO. It definitely isn't as compressed as the Rockerverb.

I think the above description is pretty spot on.

I had an OR30 for awhile, pretty versatile (and LOUD!) amp. That one has more gain than any other Orange amp I've tried. Comparable to the cleans on a TV and the dirt on a RV.

I am kind of curious about the OR series as well. Maybe an OR 30 or something. I would like to hear a sound comparison, that would be awesome...

A few weeks ago I tried an OR120 and it's now by far my favorite Orange. Anyone know how the OR100 compares? I'm also interested in the upcoming Dual Dark.

Resurrecting this thread because I got to do the exact same thing today and went home with the AD50. Same experience with the tonal differences. Rockerverb is very nice but the AD50 made it sound colder, more controlled. Basically less of a hoot to rock out on. The Rrockerverb can do the tighter palm mute thing a little better and has more gain available but the AD50 was so nasty in all the right ways and had a girth to it. If you lowered the bass almost all the way it would get pretty tight under gain. Both 30 and 50 watt settings sounded killer and the tone stack 'lift/boost" was also nice. I got to use my attenuator as well and getting the Master up only made it better.

A friend of mine picked up a a OR50 last week. I very much like the Orange amps.
Congratulations Skoora...

Thanks. This is the closest I've found in a new Orange that sounds like an old one. It actually cops really good takes on Let There Be Rock tones. Also that nasty Downpayment Blues tone.
