The all-new Orange Dual Dark Series is a range of high-end dual channel amps.  Put simply, these amps showcase Orange Amplification at their most innovative. The new amps build on the brand’s reputation for creating the ultimate British guitar tone. Bringing a new dimension of sound that delivers potent combinations of tone and the highest levels of gain the brand has ever offered.

The models have a completely new voicing for Channel A, different to anything else in the Orange Amp range yet still true to their heritage.  Channel B is has the voicing of the Dark Terror tone. Both channels can go from clean through to crunch at lower gain levels and offer four stages of gain!

Launching at NAMM 2014 are the 50 Watt and 100 Watt versions, both feature footswitchable attenuators and Orange’s signature low impedance effects loop design. The Dual Dark 50 has an output that can be switched to 50 or 25 Watts.  Output on the Dual Dark 100 can be switched to 100, 70, 50 or 30 Watts.
Both amps come with standard EL34s fitted but other tetrode valves can be used when biased correctly by a technician. The Dual Dark amps have been built with state of the art components backed by Orange’s ever evolving design and deliver the biggest amount of gain available in the history of their amps.

OR100 Best Amp Award 2013

Orange Amplification’s OR100H guitar amp received the Total Guitar Amplifier Of The Year, last night at the prestigious Music Industries Association Awards (MIA). Earlier that same day it was announced SonicState.com had awarded Best Amplifier Of The Year to the OR100H. These two awards followed on from the Guitar World Platinum Award received in November.

Editor Stuart Williams presented the Total Guitar Amplifier Of The Year, as voted by thousands of Musicradar.com readers, to Orange Amplification at the MIA Awards, held last night, Wednesday 4th December 2103, at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London. In the review, Guitarist Magazine described the OR100H as ‘all of Orange’s considerable heritage and contemporary ingenuity distilled into a world-beating pro valve head’. Orange Amplification were also shortlisted for a Best Supplier Award last night, voted for by UK music retailers.

Readers of SonicState.com voted for the five most popular guitar amps of 2013, and a panel of editors, writers and reviewers chose the OR100H as the overall winner of the Best Amplifier Of The Year. When presenting the award the SonicState panel commented ‘the Orange OR100H is everything an amplifier should be  – it’s versatile, it’s pure valve tone and it’s gutsy enough to put a hole in a brick wall. It’s awesome’.

These two awards come hot on the heels of the recent Guitar World Platinum Award for the latest Orange ‘flagship’ amp, the OR100H. In summing up why they presented the award, Guitar World said ‘with two independent channels, multiple power options and a broad palette of midrange hues, the OR100H is the most versatile amp in Orange’s outstanding OR series’.

‘These awards are significant,’ said Cliff Cooper, Orange Amplification CEO, ‘they recognise the relentless effort the team at Orange puts into new ways of allowing guitarists to make music. We are proud to accept these awards and to have the endorsement of not only our industry peers but the public too.’
