Made in the UK, it’s heavy and solidly put together with superbly applied tolex and piping, metal corner covers and chromed facia protectors. All the cooling vents are metal, and everything is screwed down so tightly it can only inspire confidence.

Taking it’s place among the elite super-high-gain heads, Orange’s all tube Dual Dark 50 is equally proficient at producing modern, ear melting gain and yesteryear’s British Chime.

I don’t believe that the ‘perfect’ amp exists but the Dual Dark comes frighteningly close. Amazing Stuff!


….the Dual Dark 50 is a pro-level amp for players who are serious about getting heavy, and nobody does heavy quite like Orange

“It cleans up really nicely, you can get some really nice jangly tones…it’s a pretty friggin great amp!”
