This year, Orange granted 100 wishes to fans around the world over the course of 12 days. We asked ‘What gear/merch do you want from Orange this Christmas?’ and you guys answered – we received well over 100,000 entries!

This year, we granted over £16,000 [$21,000 USD] worth of gear and merch. As we work hard to get the wishes to the winners, we’ll be covering delivery and custom fee’s so there’s no cost to the winner.

Our annual Wish Granted contest ended with more than $30,000 in Orange product given away to over 100 individual winners. We had 87,219 total wishes come in just to our website. It’s safe to assume there were well over 500,000 additional wishes just through social media.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the items we awarded by type:

Guitar Amps, Cabs, and Pedals – 48 pieces

Bass Gear – 10 pieces

Accessories and Merch – 48 pieces

We granted wishes to people in more than 20 different countries on 6 continents. Without a doubt, this Wish Granted was the crowning achievement of the 7-year-old contest.

Santa is drunk in a tree btw

We wanted to take a moment to focus on a handful of the people who entered this contest. We’ve been doing Wish Granted since it’s inception (when I created the contest while sitting in traffic driving home on a cold Christmas Eve EVE). In that time we’ve seen the contest grow from less than 50,000 impressions per year to more than 3,000,000. For most people the odds of winning must seem impossible.

For these lucky people, that impossibility has become reality. Let’s focus in on some of the winners and what they had to say about having their wishes granted by “Cliffy Claus.”


Erik Deptuch, Canada, Terror Bass Amp

“I can’t thank Orange Amps for this amazing opportunity, my year has been difficult just like everyone else’s but this definitely has rekindled a spark of hope that no matter how long of a shot that things can, and will get better. Stand strong, stand united, and support those you care about. Hopefully the next few years can be better than ever! Once again thank you Orange Amps!”

Ana Rita Rodrigues, Portugal, Two Stroke Pedal

“I’m a beginner and Two Stroke seems perfect to add more what I already have. For now I’ll be playing with my Squire Hello Kitty Stratocaster Electric Guitar and give nightmares to my neighbors.”

Henning Mesquita Brekke, Norway, Pedal Baby 100

“Been playing several different Orange amps over the years, the Pedal Baby 100 will be super helpful when traveling and playing gigs!”

Alexandra Koroukhov, Israel, Micro Dark Amp

“I wish to expand my gear as I am a guitar beginner. Once I excel in my musical duties more and more, I would love to produce sounds with some additional gear of one of the leading manufacturers.”

Robert Madley, USA, OB1 300 Bass Amp

“I wanted this amp because I needed a bass amp and I could never afford this. You made my Christmas dream come true!”

Juan Pablo Jimenez Bernal, Mexico, T-Shirt

“Even though I was a small child the first time I saw an orange amp, I could feel the power of Rock beckoning me. 2 years ago through hard work I could finally afford a Crush Pro series amp and since then I have played it tirelessly every single day enjoying its might and raw tones. I want to thank everyone at Orange and Cliff for all the wonderful gifts, all the flawless gear you have created and for being part of the history of rock n’ roll. Rock on my fellow brothers and sisters of the world and stay Orange!”

Evan Messenger, USA, AD30 and PPC212 Cabinet

“I wished for this so that I could finally get closer to starting the band that my grandfather and I always fantasized over.”

Jimmy Lewis, England, T-Shirt

“I’ll be wearing it. Externally. Almost certainly on the torso area.”


That last one is my personal favorite.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 Wish Granted. 2020 was a dumpster fire, but we’re glad we were able to help add a bit of light into an otherwise dark year. Until next time!

Six years ago, on Christmas Eve eve, I was sitting in traffic on the way home from work when an idea popped into my head. I wanted to make a contest. But not just any contest. I wanted to make the entry process simple and I wanted to make the reward huge. So I opened the Facebook mobile app and I wrote a post on the Orange page. It read:

“Wish Granted: Just tell us which Orange product you want and on Christmas day we’ll announce the winners.”

By the time I got home the post had 2,000 like and nearly as many comments. I knew I was onto something.

We had thousands of entries in year one. We had tens of thousands by year two. Each year we kept giving away more and more products. Those first few years I would personally sit at the computer on Christmas Day scrolling through the entries and hand-picking winners. It was tedious and it was time-consuming. But the joy it created made it worth the trouble. (Luckily our very tech-savvy marketing director has made the selection process much easier)

Around year three it was clear that Wish Granted had become part of our annual marketing repertoire. That’s when we began involving Cliff Cooper to help push the promotion via his heartwarming Christmas videos. That’s also when Cliff decided it was time to really expand Wish Granted to even more countries and even bigger prize packages. Now we find ourselves in the sixth year of Wish Granted and we just finished giving away more than $40,000 in Orange products to more than 15 countries after receiving upwards of 95,000 unique entries! See the full recap here.

What really warms my heart about Wish Granted is the feedback we receive from our fans. Here’s a smattering of extremely positive reviews from some of this year’s winners:

“I am 42 years old, last time I won a lottery was when I was about 10 y.o. – it was a small prize, less than a dollar. I am new to the Orange fans army but I do appreciate what this company does for the music-addicted society, I have never seen this before from other brands. It is so impressive that even if I would not win, my respect to Orange would have increased significantly just because of this unbelievable initiative.”

“I’ve always been a fan of Orange Amplifiers but being on disability have unfortunately never had the funds to purchase one. I’ve entered the giveaway every year you’ve run it on the off chance of being one of the luckiest individuals to walk the face of this Earth, never dreaming in a million years I’d win. That said, I cant thank you enough for the opportunity or the ear buds. You’ve definitely made my holiday season that much more enjoyable and with a bit of citrus.”

“Unbelievable! I have several Orange products and now they have my loyalty for life! I have had a really bad few weeks this is definitely the light at the end of the tunnel, cannot wait to play it! From my old trusty Crush Bass 25 now to a Terror Bass Amp!!! Thank you for making my Christmas!!!”

“3 years ago, my band was robbed and a lot of our equipment got lost, including my trustworthy Terror Bass. So winning one this time makes me feel double as happy as anyone else! Feels like the universe is returning something that always belonged to you. Thank you, Orange! You are and always will be the best amps in the world!”

“I am passionate about music and guitars in particular, I play it for more than 40 years. My son shares this passion and has been taking guitar lessons for 2 years. For Christmas I will offer him an electro-acoustic guitar. Your gift could not be better for this Christmas and will perfectly complement its equipment. I sincerely want to thank you and I wish you a very happy holiday season and a merry Christmas!”

It’s knowing that we helped make the holidays better for thankful guitarists that makes all of this effort worth it. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting Orange and may 2020 be your best year yet!
