Welcome to Orange

Thank you for choosing Orange.

Since 1968, when the company was founded, Orange Amplification has been researched and developed by the guitarist for the guitarist. Today, with a team of the industry’s most dedicated engineers, it continues to test the boundaries of conventional pedal design to bring you the latest range of effects.

Orange’s commitment to quality control, construction and craftsmanship is long established, and each pedal design passes through a rigorous test procedure before shipping, resulting in complete confidence that you will be delighted with your new purchase, and that it will provide you many years of enjoyment and reliability.

This web page contains valuable technical and safety information. Please take the time to read these instructions and warnings, as the information will enhance the performance and longevity of your pedal.

  1. Read these instructions.

  3. Heed all warnings.
  4. Follow all instructions.
  5. Do not use this apparatus near water or other liquids.
  6. Clean only with a dry cloth.
  7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
  9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarised or grounding-type plug. A polarised plug has two blades, with one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for a replacement of the obsolete outlet.
  10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit the apparatus.
  11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
  12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
  13. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.
  14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.

Two Stroke — instructions for use


Hi volume


Lo volume




Hi frequency


Low frequency










9–12V DC Input

1. Hi volumeControls the boost/cut of the high frequency (±18 dB). 12 o’clock position is unity gain
2. Lo volumeControls the boost/cut of the low frequency (±18 dB). 12 o’clock position is unity gain
3. OilControls the level of clean volume boost before the EQ is applied. Minimum position is unity gain
4. Hi frequencySets the high frequency (850 Hz – 8.5k Hz)
5. Lo frequencySets the low frequency (120 Hz – 1.2 kHz)
6. OutputAll Orange pedals feature a highly transparent, low impedance buffered bypass output
7. InputConnecting a jack plug to the input switches on the power to the pedal
8. ON/OFF SwitchDepress switch to engage pedal. Depress again to bypass the effect.
9. LEDLED will illuminate when the pedal is engaged
10. 9-12 V DC INPUTUse a regulated AC–DC adaptor fitted with a centre-negative plug (2.1 mm)


Experiment with the position of the Two Stroke in your signal chain (e.g. before/after other pedals, in front of your amplifier or in the effects loop). There are no rules with this pedal! When the HI or LO controls are set to 12 o’clock (unity gain), the corresponding FREQ control will have no effect. Set both HI and LO to 12 o’clock for a transparent clean boost where no additional EQ is required.


The Two Stroke is powered by a single 9 V (PP3/6F22) battery. To replace the battery, unfasten the four screws on the ends/sides of the pedal that secure the base. Remove the base and replace the battery, ensuring it is firmly secured in the metal clip. Be sure to observe the battery’s polarity (+ vs. –).


The Two Stroke can be powered by 9 V or 12 V DC. Running at 12 V will increase the headroom and the output volume available. A regulated DC power supply fitted with a​ centre-negative​ ​plug​ ​(2.1 mm) must be used.
