Don’t be fooled by the retro styling. Behind the OR15’s “Pics Only” faceplate lives a modern, high-gain 15W amp capable of a hugely diverse range of Orange tones. Based on the Dirty channel of our Flagship Rockerverb amps, this EL84-powered little monster pushes out everything from classic cleans to cutting-edge Metal, oozing character at every notch on its five simple dials.
Amazingly playable and switchable from 15 Watts to 7, the responsive EL84 output section and power switching options offer the perfect balance of gain, volume and feel, finding the elusive “sweet spot” in any stage or studio setting. Complete with a valve-buffered FX Loop, the OR15 is equally at home with old-school players “riding the volume control” or at the centre of a complex, modern rig.
The OR15’s stripped-down preamp shares its DNA with our flagship Rockerverb’s Dirty Channel. This simple, 4-stage design with its intuitive-yet-powerful 3-band EQ covers the entire spectrum of classic amp sounds from vintage to modern. Clean, crunch and super-high gain are just a tweak away, whether you’re plugging straight in or boosting the amp with your favourite drive pedals.
Using a pair of EL84 valves and the same robust, proprietary transformers as our other Terror series amps, the OR15 delivers a hard-hitting 15 Watts in Full Power mode. Club stages are easily filled with rich power amp overdrive. For those seeking a little less headroom, the 7W Half Power setting gives you the same cranked amp feel at a more modest level.
No modern amp would be complete without a great FX Loop. Our highly-transparent, all-valve design makes sure your signal path gets nothing but the best treatment, no matter how complex your pedal setup.
In 1972 we launched a guitar amp which came to define the Orange sound – the Graphic. Years later it was dubbed the ‘Pics Only’ due to the use of our signature ‘hieroglyphs’ and the absence of any text. The OR15 echoes this design, saluting this iconic piece of our history.
