Real country rockers (we say “real” because we’re comparing them to fakes) and Orange Ambassadors, Blackberry Smoke performed a very special 4 song acoustic set at our UK retailer PMT Manchester. The turn-out was great in anticipation of a sold-out show later that evening at local venue The Ritz. It’s great to see these “hometown boys” (at least for Orange USA in Atlanta) blazing a trail across Europe, spreading the Orange gospel with their classic rock-inspired take on modern country. We consider them “genre saviors.”

Guitarist Paul Jackson is currently using the Custom Shop 50 hand-wired amp through one of our PPC212OB Open Back cabs. About his set-up, Paul says, “In all of my career I have NEVER come across an amp like the Custom Shop 50. The tones you can get from the CS50 are beautiful and amazing. Hand-wired and full of life and let’s not forget about the 50 watt A/B 30 watt switch on it. All I can say is WOW!!! The CS50 is without a doubt unbeatable!!”

To promote the Blackberry Smoke performance, PMT held a special sale on Orange products. Jake Marray of PMT said this about the event: “I want to thank Orange amps for helping to organize this great performance with Blackberry Smoke. The turn-out was one of the best we’ve ever had! And the band was absolutely fantastic. They’re incredibly talented and total professionals, both in their music and their attitudes. We hope to have them back again very soon.”
