120 WATTS | CELESTION NEO CREAMBACK SPEAKERS | LIGHTWEIGHT PLYWOOD

PPC212 V

Orange has been for 50 years at the forefront of cabinet design, our rugged PPC412 cabinet has become an industry standard.

The PPC212V is our first vertical cabinet and has been designed to be as light as possible without compromising tonal response.

Constructed from 15mm Birch Plywood it’s light and compact but robust enough to withstand the rigours of touring. The PPC212V has Celestion Neo Creamback speakers and an open back construction, keeping the weight down while still retaining the tonal excellence you would expect from an Orange cabinet.

LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

We’ve sourced the best quality Birch Plywood and lightweight Celestion Neo Creamback speakers to make the PPC212V one of the lightest 2 x 12 speaker cabinets available.

CLASSIC ORANGE STYLING

Finished in our legendary livery dating back to 1968.

VERTICAL SPEAKER CONFIGURATION

To be used in conjunction with our Terror range the Vertical cabinets give you Orange tone in a small scale size.

“After 17 years of playing, fine tuning, reorganizing, modding, breaking, fighting, and exploring other gear, I finally got my hands on a full Orange rig for our reunion shows in 2016. Hindsight being 20/20, I’m left scratching my head as to why I ever used anything else. I’m more excited than ever about the sounds we make.”

“When I made the change to the PPC212V, suddenly life just got a little bit easier. Being as light as it is (under 20kg) but without losing any tone quality is just impressive, especially for those that don’t have a team of roadies. I love having a vertical cab in my studio too, it’s much easier to mic and I personally think it just sounds better in the room.”

REDEFINING STANDARDS IN LIVE ACOUSTIC SOUND

Orange Acoustic Pre TC

The Orange Acoustic Pre TC is the world’s first stereo valve acoustic preamp/active DI, offering supreme clarity and unrivalled performance for uncompromising performers. Engineered for both stage and studio use this valve design affords acoustic players the same warmth, natural compression and rich harmonics previously only available to electric guitarists and hi-fi audiophiles.

Channel A is a unique ECC83/12AX7 valve channel for active and passive instruments. The valve circuitry operates in a totally different way to most electric guitar amplifiers and has been designed to amplify a much wider frequency range in order to capture every subtle nuance of acoustic instruments. The tonal effect of the valve can be fine-tuned with the preamp’s ‘Heat’ control which adds gain in the upper mid range and above, whilst also adding subtle compression. This can be used to revoice this channel depending on the playing style. Backing off the Heat offers a warmer attack for flatpickers, whilst turning it up adds more presence and sparkle for fingerstyle.

The analogue solid state Channel B has a different, slightly softer character with outstanding clarity. This channel has inputs for either a microphone or an instrument, and features switchable 48V phantom power. Both channels can be used independently or blended together – perfect for the modern player who combines multiple sound sources.

Each channel has a three-band EQ with a semi-parametric mid control, plus switches to correct feedback issues on stage and phasing problems between dual-source pickups. The tone shaping options have been voiced to perfectly control the natural body and ‘air’ of acoustic instruments, whilst the onboard stereo reverb adds stunning ambience if desired.

On the rear, the preamp features flexible routing options, including independent effects loops and balanced DI outputs for each channel. Handmade in the UK the Orange Acoustic Pre TC has already been a hit with major artists. Prototypes have already gone straight into the touring rigs of Stevie Wonder for use with his Harpejji and fingerstyle jazz guitarist Martin Taylor MBE.


“I feel very honoured to have been a part of the creation of this amazing preamp – I love the warmth and dynamic range. This preamp inspires me to create music”

With the Acoustic Pre I can turn up for radio sessions knowing I have easy control over my guitars without a ton of gear. It’s a really versatile tool in the Clean Bandit studio.

For a first acoustic product, Orange have pretty much nailed it!

I was very excited to try the Orange acoustic pre-twin channel because it
is so hard to get a warm rich acoustic sound live through a DI. I’ve never
been happy with the way my acoustic sounds to me onstage until now. It adds
depth, character and all of the good things that I want to hear when I pick
up my acoustic guitar to play. And there are a few different ways to set
this thing up that are brilliant! I love having options!!!

“Orange has once again revolutionized the capabilities of giving you the best from your guitar that’s possible. Now entering the acoustic guitar world, The Twin Channel Acoustic Pre is the most amazing acoustic preamp I’ve ever used. It’s versatility brings out the perfect balance of enhancement and playability in your sound”

“The Orange Acoustic Pre is an invaluable element to my sound,from the smallest clubs to the largest theaters I can depend on it to deliver a flawless performance every night. The vast tonal possibilities, transparent signal boosting and superior dynamics of the Acoustic Pre are unparalleled in allowing the slightest nuances of my acoustic performances to be captured effortlessly both live and in the studio.”

This is an awesome unit that you can use in a whole bunch of ways. Essentially, it gives you total control over the tone of your acoustic guitar.

I feel I have really enhanced my acoustic sound with this.

“The Acoustic Pre combines quality, depth and beauty of sound. Channel A enhanced with a valve has a warm, powerful and natural character. Channel B is a solid state and has an immense clarity. It is the perfect device for any live and/or studio situations. It makes my flamenco guitar sound huge!! I will be using the Acoustic Pre on the World of Hans Zimmer autumn Tour 2019 live.

I think the Acoustic Pre is great. Really helps with the tone of flat piezos. Lot of range and flexibility… I love it.

ROCKERVERB 100 MKIII

POSSIBLY THE ONLY 100 WATT HEAD YOU’LL EVER NEED.

Powerful and Versatile

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2014, the Rockerverb Series demonstrates better than anything else that a workhorse amp can be a master of all trades. The original Rockerverb was actually our first ever ‘high gain’ amplifier, with a unique voice that quickly became a firm favourite amongst the heavy crowd. However, its supreme versatility and dependability meant the series has been a mainstay for touring artists and session aces, both on the road and in the studio.

The Rockerverb 100 MKIII head combines over a decade of user feedback with a number of new details and improvements. In a first for the Rockerverb Series, the MKIIIs include selectable output power options to manipulate headroom and volume, switching down to 70, 50 or 30W. The MKIII also features the same footswitchable attenuator that has been so popular with users of our Thunderverb and Dual Dark Series amps.

The Clean channel has been revoiced on the new MKIIIs for a more ‘chimey’ response, but still retains the warmth and vintage character of a non-master volume design. The new models now have even greater headroom than previous versions, whilst the valve driven spring reverb now has a more extensive range with a brighter trail. Add to this a host of other hidden refinements and you have the finest sounding and most feature-laden Rockerverb to date.

KEY FEATURES:

HIGHLY VERSATILE TWIN CHANNEL DESIGN

The original Rockerverb gained a cult following on account of its iconic high gain tones. The MKIIIs of course continue this tradition, but these amps are immensely flexible. The Dirty channel goes anywhere from clean to crunch to the very heaviest modern saturation, and always maintains outstanding clarity. The non-master volume Clean channel has been re-engineered to take on a more ‘sparkly’ and ‘crisp’ nature but with greater control through a revoiced two band EQ section. The MKIIIs have even greater headroom and volume in full power mode should you need it but this can now be manipulated with the amp’s output power and Attenuator controls.

FOOTSWITCHABLE ATTENUATOR CONTROL

Cranked amp tones at ‘conversation volumes’. The Attenuator circuit is located after the master volume controls and determines when and how the amp distorts after the preamp stage. This means the overall volume level can be reduced, whilst keeping control over the entire amp’s clipping characteristics. Unlike a loadbox, our design ensures the all-important relationship between the output transformer and the speaker remains intact so, even at very low volumes, the amp remains springy and responsive. Turning the Attenuator control clockwise reduces the overall output level (i.e. increases the attenuation), which can be remotely defeated via a footswitch for a volume boost on either channel for lead lines.

SWITCHABLE OUTPUT POWER

Switching the amp’s output power allows for more control over the headroom and breakup from the output valves. Reduce the output for greater output valve clipping and saturation at lower volume levels. The Rockerverb 100H MKIII features both a ‘half power’ mode which drops the plate voltage on the output valves, and a 2 or 4 valve selector switch for a choice of 100, 70, 50 or 30 Watts.

FOOTSWITCHABLE VALVE DRIVEN SPRING REVERB

Driven by an ECC83/12AT7 valve and a custom transformer, the spring reverb circuit in the MKIII has undergone significant upgrades. Brighter and more controllable than its predecessor, this lush spring reverb circuit covers everything from ‘air’ to full-on surf.

VALVE BUFFERED FX LOOP

For the purist who loves their pedals, our highly transparent effects loop is buffered by a single ECC81/12AT7, ensuring an all-valve signal path from input to output.

I tried not to change too much to the clean channel from the MK2 but it has more chime and headroom as players asked for.

BAXANDALL EQ | INTERNAL CHARGE PUMP | ULTRA TRANSPARENT BUFFERED BYPASS

Bax Bangeetar – Guitar Preamp & EQ

For years, we were hounded by our customers and retailers to make a pedal. It may have taken a while for us to join the pedal party but it had to be right and, in 2015 we finally settled on a design of which we were truly proud – our first pedal since the 1960s, the Custom Shop Bax Bangeetar Guitar Preamp & EQ.

The Bax Bangeetar is a Custom Shop grade Orange preamp coupled with a studio-style Baxandall active EQ in a stompbox enclosure. As a traditional stompbox, the Bax Bangeetar is in a class of its own, boasting a unique and hugely versatile gain structure and extensive EQ control. Dial in an enormous range of overdriven and distorted tones, delivered with a feel and responsiveness rarely found in pedals.

Beyond that, though, this preamp pedal is an invaluable tool, allowing you to tailor your tone to any setup with absolute precision via its parametric mid controls. Find and eliminate problem frequencies in certain guitars and amps, shape broad mid ‘scoops’ or boost anywhere on the mid spectrum to suit any style. Kick in the 6dB clean Boost and you’re covered for any situation.

Plug straight into the front of an amp as a standalone drive pedal, or plug into the FX Return to make the donor amp ‘disappear’! Whatever your rig, the possibilities are virtually limitless. For even more flexibility, the second output takes your sound and passes it through our CabSim circuit, recreating the frequency response of a mic’d Orange 4×12 cab, ideal for direct recording or even connecting to a PA.

Whether on stage or in the studio, the nature and scope of its controls mean there isn’t a situation where the Bax Bangeetar doesn’t excel.

WIDE GAIN RANGE

The Bax Bangeetar is an entirely unique design, with a gain structure that covers a massive breadth of overdrive and distortion without ever sounding compromised, however you set it. At the minimum, the Bax Bangeetar is an awesome clean boost or low gain driver, highly receptive to different guitar and pickup combinations. As the gain increases, you’ll go from classic Orange crunch and vintage rhythm tones, through to soaring leads and right up to genuinely insane levels of distortion. As in, bonkers levels. The Boost switch offers a 6dB ‘clean boost’ after the distortion circuit when the pedal is engaged, helping your leads jump out of the mix in a live setting.

NO DIODE CLIPPING

As soon as you plug into the Bax Bangeetar, you’ll quickly notice that all the sounds contained within remain articulate and tight across the gain range, without any hint of wooliness. In fact, it doesn’t feel like a pedal at all! We’ve achieved all of this without the use of the back-to-back diode clipping techniques found in most pedals. This box distorts and behaves just like our amps, with natural-sounding and controllable breakup, delivering serious punch without any stifling compression.

BAXANDALL EQ WITH FULL PARAMETRIC MID CONTROLS

Inspired by some of the highly-sought after mixing consoles of the 1960s, but with a number of modern tweaks, the Bax Bangeetar’s powerful EQ really separates it from other drive pedals. With an open treble response and controlled low end, the fun properly starts with the Mid controls.

The midrange is perhaps the most important area for guitar players, not only because this is generally the space they occupy in a band mix but also because of how the midrange drastically affects the tonal and distortion characteristics of a guitar/amp setup. Despite this, we’ve found that most overdrive/distortion pedals have very limited control over this range. Not so with the Bax Bangeetar’s fully parametric Mid controls. The ‘Freq’ knob selects the centre frequency you wish to affect. The ‘Q’ controls the bandwidth, ranging from narrow to wide, allowing you to fine-tune a precise or broad frequency range. The ‘Mid’ knob can then be set to cut or boost those frequencies, for exact command over your tone.

ULTRA TRANSPARENT BUFFERED BYPASS

“Is it ‘true bypass’?”

No. It’s better than that.

‘True bypass’ is well-intentioned but is not without limitations. Our supremely linear buffer circuit is designed for the growing number of discerning players who realise the positive effects that a studio-quality buffer can have on their overall tone. And when we say ‘transparent’, we really mean it. Whether you need to drive a pedal board or just need a little help getting a pure signal to your amp, our buffered bypass ensures no degradation and no loss of clarity or high end. Placed first in your chain, you’ll sound better, even when the pedal is off!

INTERNAL CHARGE PUMP

Key to the Bax Bangeetar’s design is the charge pump, which doubles the 9-12V input to give an internal voltage of 18-24V. This is not only crucial to the bypass circuit, but also means this pedal has a wider dynamic range and more output, with even greater definition and headroom than a conventional 9V pedal. The Bax Bangeetar can run on a single standard 9V battery, or an external regulated AC-DC adapter.

CABSIM OUTPUT

The second output takes the Bax Bangeetar’s preamp signal and passes it through our CabSim circuit, faithfully emulating the sound of a mic’d Orange 40th Anniversary PPC412 4×12 cabinet, loaded with Celestion G12H 30 speakers. Connect the CabSim output to a recording console to capture huge Orange tones in the studio, or to a powered monitor or PA for a versatile live setup. Both the regular and CabSim outputs can be used independently or simultaneously.

I wanted to design something more than just an overdrive “Bang Box” as I call them. I wanted proper amp gain in a pedal and something a little more “unhinged.”

Much more than simply an Orange amp in a stompbox, the Bax Bangeetar is an ultra versatile tone shaping tool.

…The fact that this thing really serves as a great guitar rig front end for a wide array of styles is impressive.

Awesome tones and feels just like a top end Orange amp.

CELESTION SPEAKERS

The Celestion Vintage 30 is one of the most popular drivers in the world today, and with good reason. A pair of these, housed in a rugged open-back plywood combo cabinet, take the Rockerverb MKIII to another tonal dimension.

“I chose Orange amplifiers because for me, it is the only brand that can provide a vintage tone that sounds really fat ! I always thought that ‘vintage’ lacked thickness… But Orange proved me wrong … I finally found my tone.
My band plays Blues and Southern Rock as well as Hard Rock, so I needed a versatile amp. The Rockerverb 50 MKIII can do it all ! I plug my Bacchus Duke Laura Cox, I set the gain just before noon for a thick crunch tone, and it’s as simple as that.”

HAND WIRED PERFECTION

Our Custom Shop Series represents over forty years of craftsmanship, creating some of world’s very finest amps in limited numbers.

Combining a beautifully straightforward front panel, elegant construction and exquisite Blues-Rock tones, the Custom Shop 50 is the quintessential ‘player’s’ amp. Meticulously hand wired using premium grade components and heavy gauge copper wire, the internals are nothing short of a work of art.

Sonically, this single channel gem caters for those guitarists pursuing pure and unadulterated tonal refinement. Switching between 30 Watts Class A and 50 Watts Class A/B output alters the amp’s feel and response, with a wonderfully sensitive chime in Class A mode. In the Class A/B setting, the mids open up, for a more aggressive, full-bodied kick.

The EQ section is highly responsive, and interacts brilliantly with the Gain control, going from round and smooth, to bold and snarly. Our unique HF Drive control allows for fine tuning of the upper harmonics. As the HF Drive reaches 3 o’clock on the dial, it adds negative feedback at the output stage for a rich, thick overdrive which sails through any mix.

This level of care and workmanship is rare, but more importantly, it’s done so that your amp can outlast you and a lifetime of pro use.

The thick, juicy overdriven tones that this beast of a head kicks out are some of the most satisfying we’ve heard from any amp.

The CS 50 stands proudly and resolutely unique, and for that we like it a lot. In fact, we might just love it.

It sounds, in a word, Orange: big, loud and solid, with a strong, oaky ‘clonk’ in the midrange and plenty of clarity at the top.

The first thing you’ll notice about the CS50 when you see one is the bulletproof construction and and superb build quality.

The detail and pick response is nothing short of astounding and makes you play better as you listen much more to your sound and the way it is interpreted by the amplifier.

I LOVED working with this amp.

PPC412AD

The PPC412AD is the angled-front version of the hugely popular PPC412 4×12 cabinet. With four Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, the slanted baffle produces rich mids and crisp, sparkling highs with outstanding vertical projection. These cabs conquer the problem of poor on-stage monitoring, whilst dispersing the sound in more directions than a conventional cabinet. The PPC412AD shares the same constructional techniques and materials as the straight-front version. Each PPC412AD is made in England from high density, 13 ply 18mm Baltic birch plywood and fitted with steel hardware to withstand the rigours of the road. Our unique skid runners fitted to the base helps to acoustically couple our cabinets to the stage for a fuller low end response, whilst our signature paper grille cloth contributes to the unmistakable magic of the Orange 4×12.

The Ultimate 4×12″

With formidable construction and a tight, unflappable sound, the PPC412 has achieved near-legendary status in guitarist circles. The PPC412 is our classic full-sized ‘straight-front’ 4×12″ cabinet with a signature delivery that has made it a mainstay of touring artists across the globe. Built to last using extremely rugged construction and manufacturing techniques, all PPC412s are made in England (except the USA who receive cabinets from our USA factory) from high density, 13 ply 18mm Baltic birch plywood and fitted with steel hardware to withstand the rigours of the road. Our unique skid feet design helps to acoustically couple our cabinets to the stage for an improved bass response, whilst our signature paper grille cloth contributes to the unmistakable magic of the Orange 4×12. Housing four Celestion Vintage 30 speakers in a closed-back shell, the PPC412 exhibits a focused tone that’s full of warm midrange. Don’t take our word for it, though. Just look to the legions of players for whom nothing else but an Orange PPC412 will do.

MAXIMUM IMPACT FROM A 2×12

Our imposing PPC212 is a closed-back 2×12″ cabinet equal in width to the PPC412. Featuring two Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, the PPC212 is in essence our classic 4×12 slashed in half. The large internal volume of the sealed enclosure makes the PPC212 ideal for players looking for the the fattest possible tone when a 4×12″ would be too large. Many players choose to stack two PPC212 cabs for ease of load-in, also giving them the flexibility of using just one for smaller venues. Made in England from high density 13 ply 18mm Baltic birch plywood, the PPC212 is fitted with steel hardware to withstand the rigours of the road. Our unique skid runners fitted to the base helps to acoustically couple our cabinets to the stage for a fuller low end response.

Built for a Life on the Road

With formidable construction and a tight, unflappable sound, the PPC212 is essentially a PPC412 cut in half allowing ease of use in smaller venues while retaining the fattest possible tone.
